Farm Sanctuary SA aims to drive the campaign and ban gestation creates in South Africa by 2018. With your support, we will make it possible.
On South Africa’s intensive pig ‘farms’, breeding pigs (sows) are squeezed into metal ‘cages’ called gestation crates. Barely bigger than her body, it is a life sentence of solitary confinement for life. She is unable to turn around. The smallest scraps of human charity - a bit of maternal care, room to roam outdoors or straw to lie on have all been taken away as costly luxuries. Outdated, inhumane and unnecessary, gestation crates are banned in many parts of the world, but not yet in South Africa.
