The shortage of carbon dioxide has had a certain impact on pig farms in the UK

- Jul 06, 2018 -

[Global Network News] On Tuesday, the largest pig farm in Scotland, England, is about to run out of stored carbon dioxide. According to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on the 26th, "Quality Pork Co., Ltd." will send about 6,000 pigs a week to the slaughterhouse. Carbon dioxide will be used to stun these animals before slaughter. The outside world is worried that insufficient carbon dioxide may cause overcrowding in livestock.

The head of the pig farm said he could send some pigs to the sister factory in England to delay the crowding of livestock. But this is not a cure, because the pig farms in England face the same problem.

According to the report, due to the seasonal maintenance of five carbon dioxide manufacturers in Northern Europe, production is suspended, and the UK can only rely on one manufacturer to supply carbon dioxide.
