I join with all Aussies in wishing all Mothers well, today mothers day.
However, lets not stuff up the day by giving mum eggs and bacon for brekky or roast pork for lunch.
Most of our bacon ham and pork comes from factory farms. In these factories, pregnant pigs are kept in tiny cages called 'Sow Stalls', where they are hardly able to move.
Before giving birth they are moved to an even smaller pen called a farrowing crate where, after the birth, they are unable to nurture the newborn piglets.
The Mothers worth is guaged by how many piglets she can produce each litter and then how quickly she can be made pregnant again.
In Australia there are close to 300,000 of these highly sensitive Mothers spending this Mothers day and every crackling munching day in 'Inescapable Misery'.
