Farmex and ARM Buildings have jointly commissioned a London-based graphic artist to produce an image that expresses the unfairness of the UK pork supply chain.

Higher welfare freedom-style farrowing pens with temporary crating work well and actually improve performance in many cases, says Tim Miller, environment specialist for ARM Buildings.
