Abstract

This policy spotlight summarises the current political situation globally relating to farrowing crate regulations, as well as industry-led initiatives that show the trend towards investment in temporary crating systems. These and other alternatives are described, along with available performance and costing information. This Policy Spotlight is particularly relevant given policy developments by the European Commission and Westminster Governments relating to this issue of confinement systems.
