European Declaration on alternatives to surgical castration of pigs

In 2010, several main actors in the pig meat chain have agreed on a plan to voluntarily end the surgical castration of pigs in Europe by 1 January 2018. The parties signed a "European Declaration on alternatives to surgical castration of pigs".

As a first step, from 1 January 2012, surgical castration of pigs, if carried out, can only be done with prolonged analgesia and/ or anaesthasia.

The declaration, the first of its kind at EU level for animal welfare, is open to all actors in the European pig meat sector.
