    DescriptionIn the European Union, the issue of “free farrowing” has gone beyond being a matter of choice. The question is more: how to make it happen? Matters like those were discussed at the recent digitally held workshop, with expert presence from all over the world. The workshop “Freedom in Farrowing and Lactation 2021” was held 12-13 August, 2021 and was attended by 50 scientists and industry personnel from over 20 countries in Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America.
