Today’s pig farmers embrace environmental sustainability like never before. Learn how much we have reduced energy, water and land usage in #RealPigFarming through A Retrospective Assessment of U.S. Pork Production: 1960 to 2015. View our We Care playlist to learn more.
Today’s pig farmers embrace sustainability and new research from the University of Arkansas shows that pig farmers are using less land, water and energy.
From 1960 to 2015, continuous on-farm improvements in nutrition, genetics and overall pig care have made a positive difference.
Pig farmers have options when it comes to housing their animals, but they all share a common goal regardless of how or where they house their pigs: the highest level of animal care and welfare provided to each pig.
In order to meet the evolving needs of the consumer, pig farmers and other members of the industry work every day to exceed the highest levels of animal care and food safety.
The We Care Ethical Principles underpin pig farmers’ commitment to safeguarding our natural resources through ongoing, evolving sustainability efforts so that future generations of family farmers have even greater opportunities to follow in their predecessors’ footsteps. That commitment has paid off; through continuous improvement, today’s pig farmers are not just more efficient at raising pigs, but are able to do so with a fraction of the environmental impact as their predecessors.
