Willawa Piggery is a small farrow to finish piggery located at Grong Grong NSW, near Narrandera.
In one of the sheds, the farrowing crates are positioned on top of grower pens, so that the waste and afterbirth from the sows and piglets falls onto the grower pigs. Numerous dead piglets were found.
Trapped in the sow stalls, pigs were found screaming and trying to escape.
Outside were buckets of dead piglets and one dead grower pig.
