St Arnaud Piggery Units 2 & 3

St Arnaud Piggery Units 2 & 3

Location: Nelson Road, St Arnaud VIC
Owned by: Rivalea Australia
Status: Open and operating

St Arnaud Piggery, owned by Rivalea Australia, is spread over two sites in St Arnaud, Victoria. The first site (Unit 1) is located on the Sunraysia Highway, south of town; the second site (Units 2 & 3) is located north of town. At this site, Unit 2 comprises the southern set of sheds, while Unit 3 is the northern set. The footage and photographs displayed here are from Unit 3, depicting industry-standard farrowing crates.

Multiple sows were found with pressure sores from lying on the hard concrete floors, others had painful prolapses. Some were spray-painted with the words "CULL" or "ABORT".

Several dead piglets had been left in the aisles, including one whose throat had been cut wide open, evidently by staff.

Tails and ears of piglets are routinely cut at the St Arnaud Piggery without pain relief.
