Exposed by Animal Liberation ACT in June 2013. In one particular shed, somewhere between 700 and 1000 sows displayed signs of insanity while confined to sow stalls, screaming and thrashing. More footage and photos of the rest of the piggery coming shortly.

The footage was originally to be aired by Channel Seven's Today Tonight, who went to talk to Ean prior to a formal on-camera interview. He said he wouldn't show them his sow stalls; when they told him they already had footage of his sow stalls, he apparently "freaked". The day before the interview was to take place, the story was cancelled without explanation. By this stage, Ean had already been shown the footage, and jumped into pre-emptive damage control.
