BBC Breakfast viewers in uproar over ‘hideous’ pig farming segment ‘Absolutely disgusting’

.

The presenters were discussing the impact Brexit will have on our bacon this morning, with Steph, 35, visiting one Danish farm to chat to some of the workers and see the animals for herself.

One farm in Baldershave sees 35,000 pigs born every year, but people watching at home were quick to share their thoughts on the conditions the animals were seemingly in.

One person raged: “Hideous pen conditions in factory farms for pigs in Denmark on #bbcbreakfast.”

“BBC breakfast TV shows a farm with 35,000 pigs in this misery in Denmark – Disgusting absolutely disgusting,” a second moaned.

A third wrote: “Re Denmark: shame the pigs are not reared outside in the empty fields, rather than kept in concrete and steel cages. Welfare before profit!”

“Bet she didn't see any pigs on her Danish travels. They are all kept underground & never see daylight – disgusting,” yet another shared.

A further person ranted: “Happy Halloween! Do you know what's scary? Those thousands of pigs born on that farm that will end up dying a painful death #bbcbreakfast.”

However, others were quick to point out the differences between the farm she visited in Denmark compared to the one she reported live from in Driffield, Yorkshire; which sees 47,000 pigs born a year.

One social media user commented: “Massive welfare difference between the way the pigs are kept ours deep bedding more room happier pig.”

“Just a regular Tuesday morning. Ankle deep in manure. At least the pigs are totally relaxed about their new-found stardom @BBCBreakfast,” a second joked.

BBC Breakfast continues tomorrow at 6am on BBC One.
