Thousands of farmed animals are still trapped in these barbaric cages:
Farrowing crates for sows, which are so small that pregnant mother pigs are unable to even turn around for five weeks with each litter born. Each sow can spend several months of every year of her life inside one of these tiny metal stalls, causing extreme stress and subsequent repetitive behaviours.
Enriched cages for laying hens, which historically have been used as a replacement for battery cages, only provide each hen the space of an A4 sheet of paper, often preventing them from performing natural behaviours such as dust bathing or even simply flapping their wings.
Individual calf pens, meaning calves are separated from their mothers after birth and housed alone in small stalls until around eight weeks of age, severely restricting natural behaviours including close physical contact, social interaction, play and exercise.
