Conference on caudophagy

About the activity

La implementació dels requeriments particulars de la Directiva 2008/120/CE sobre la protecció de porcs, han estat el subjecte de diferents reunions organitzades per la UE des de 2013 amb els Estats Membres, organitzacions implicades en la producció porcina, científics i experts del sector. A partir d’aquestes trobades, la comissió ha adoptat una Recomanació (2016) per a l’aplicació de la Directiva 2008/120/EC, establint estàndards mínims per a la protecció dels porcs en relació a les mesures per reduir la necessitat de tallar cues. A partir de la publicació de la Recomanació del 2016, l’interès de la UE per tal que la implementació de la normativa fos efectiva ha estat creixent, i s’han dut a terme auditories a diversos països de la UE, entre ells Espanya.

Per tant, trobar estratègies per evitar la caudofàgia que funcionin en les condicions productives i climatològiques de Catalunya és cabdal pel sector per tal de poder donar resposta a la UE sobre si és possible evitar l’escuat rutinari en porcí.
