Report: Farmers' willingness to shift to organic is waning
In Alastalo sow farm shifting into organic resulted in profit and improved animal well-being. A sow that has lazily sprawled on the floor pushes itself up, as Otto Alastalo, 20, lifts up one of its legs. The sow grunts nervously and runs around the pen with its teats shaking. When the pig squeaks, the sow responds with even fiercer grunts. "It is motherly instinct. Someone took her child," Lassi Alastalo, 56, explains on his farm in Vehmaa.
