Hi loopylou - where is this pig advert?

marmadukescarlet · 26/02/2008 10:31

ll6, but surely that is the point? Until that advert you didn't realise that some animals were kept in such dreadful conditions.

Olivia, it is the Compassion in Farming (?) one

well then its doing its job then, loopylou isnt it?

buy meat locally and you have nothign to feel guilty about

olivia arent you on mat leave yet?? how are you?

OliviaMumsnet · 26/02/2008 10:49

loupylou, I haven't managed to find the ad yet but naily probably has a point (sorry)

Naily I'm fine, rather large but taking it easy while trying to get lots done if that makes sense. Still only 36 weeks so hopefully LOADs of time left

wow, 36 weeks!

not long now til you meet your baby

It's the Compassion in World Farming advert - it's a perfectly good advert.

Free-range pigs are happy pigs. I want some next spring. Oink-oink!

duchess, free range pigs are still bundled into lorries and taken hundreds of miles to be slaughtered. i think the advert is trying to make people aware of this fact too

TheDuchessOfNorksBride · 26/02/2008 11:23

Our local pigs are killed locally. But I realise we're lucky to still have an abattoir - most small, local ones had to shut after the new legislation was introduced.

well its certainly made me think, it really gets me where it says, 'alone in the dark and scared' think im gonna stop eating meat although i only really eat bacon anyway, i mainly buy quorn for everything else
