There are an estimated 27 million pigs raised annually on 7,000 farms in Canada. Pigs raised for food on industrial farms (also referred to as factory farms) normally spend their entire lives indoors in some type of confinement housing

Allow me to note that this of course is not limited to pigs alone as it is well known that a lot of farms do not really care about the well being of the animals that are going to die anyway. Far too many under cover videos are clearly evident of that fact. The farmers bottom line trumps any or all fair treatment regardless of species.

The FDA is planning to eliminate the use of most antibiotics fed to animals right now to prevent total resistance to any or all types of them which in terms can be just as harmful as not having antibiotics at all. Without the use of antibiotics, it becomes much more important to treat the animals and their surroundings at the highest levels possible in order to prevent outbreaks of various diseases. It will be interesting to find out how these farmers will go about that as for most of them, paying a fine will be cheaper then doing the right thing for the farm animals and subsequently for the consumer of these meat products.

Needless to say is to reduce or eliminate meat from our diets which will be the only answer to better health for all parties concerned. This will also greatly reduce the need for all these millions of farm animals force grown at inhumane substandard facilities.

It may be a happy new years resolution for 2014 to become a vegetarian. Trust me , it is a lot easier to give up meat then most other bad habits one can have. But that is up to you of course.

There are many brands of veggie sausages- there is no need to put an intelligent animal like a pig into a concrete pen, castrate and dock tails without anesthesia, then finally electrocute before slaughter...

Anyone who eats bacon should be sent to a processing plant to see what happens there. That would stop them.

Sadly , I have to agree with Ron M. The mistreatment is not isolated to pigs. It seems to be a practice that pervades every aspect of animal husbandry.
Calves, cattle, chicken and on and on - all have their issues.

Nevertheless, daunting as it may seem when facing cruelty from all sides - it must be fought relentlessly
