HC Deb 16 May 1972 vol 837 c50W
46. Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if the Protecta farrowing system is recommended by his officers for use by pig breeders.

Mr. Peter Mills

My Department's officials do not recommend particular systems but, if requested, they will advise pig breeders on suitable types of management and housing systems for farrowing sows. Where there is a satisfactory level of stockmanship there would be no reason to exclude the Protecta system from those discussed.
