Ethical problems in pig production systems arise when the rights of different stakeholders conflict.
These rights can be summarised in the ethical principles of wellbeing, autonomy and justice. The stakeholders who should be considered are the animal itself, the farmer, the consumer (and wider society) and, more generally, the natural environment.
