40 piggeries exposed so far: we've closed 2, with 38 still open. Know of one near you? Let us know.
Location: Murringo Flats Road, Murringo NSW
Owned by: Walker & Rowntree Family (Windridge Farms)
Status: Open and operating
Exposed by Animal Liberation ACT in December 2013, Templemore Piggery is a large farrow to finish pig farm in Murringo, near Young NSW, owned by Windridge. Templemore features a large, filthy group housing shed - the industry's new standard to eventually replace sow stalls.
Aside from the usual industry-wide issues such as high numbers of piglet mortality, extreme confinement for pregnant and lactating sows, mutilations carried out on piglets without pain relief, and general filth, there were a couple of other interesting/disturbing findings: sows with "Cull-Lame" and "DESTROY" spray-painted on their backs, and cut-outs of flying pigs suspended from the ceiling of the farrowing crate rooms as if to mock Animals Australia's Make It Possible campaign.
