Pig Castration: FVE revises Position Paper
Pig Castration: FVE revises Position Paper


The FVE position paper on pig castration (FVE/01/083) dates from 2001 already. Much scientific progress has been made in this area especially during the last years and also the consumer is much more aware of welfare problems arising from castration without anesthesia and/or pain medication.


Therefore the FVE sees an urgent need to revise its position paper from 2001 and would like to ask for written contributions and comments on the paper until 15 February 2009. For additional informations please contact info@fve.org. Link to position paper:
