The second instalment of the Welly Vision series, presented by Kate Quilton, investigates higher welfare egg production in the UK. If you eat eggs or just want to know more about laying hen farming, watch the micro-documentary now!
What do the codes on eggs mean? What are the different systems used to raise hens in the UK? Kate Quilton finds out the answers and more.
Something that not everyone may realise about large-scale egg production is that male chicks don't really have a part to play. Kate explores the facts about what happens to male chicks in this video.
Did you know that at least 35% of the eggs we eat in the UK come from hens in cages? Join Kate Quilton as she explores this topic with RSPCA Assured Head of Farming, Joe Bailey.
In our first video, Kate travels to Norfolk to meet Farmer Tim and discuss the challenges of pig farming in the UK. Tim explains the systems that he uses on his farm before Kate meets with RSPCA Assured head of farming, Joe Bailey, to find out more about the scheme and what it really means for pig welfare.
Kate delves into the importance of pigs being able to express their natural behaviours on-farm and finds out what farmers can do to encourage and support this.
It’s easy to be bamboozled by the array of labels that you see on pork products. In this video, Kate and Joe explain the difference between the different logos and phrases you might see on-pack.
