Do you know what it's like to be happy as a pig in mud? Believe it or not, the majority of pigs in Australia don't.
In fact, most pigs will never step foot in the outdoors. They can't root in the dirt, wallow in the mud or forage for food.
But the biggest welfare problem facing Australian pigs is the use of sow stalls and farrowing crates.
