An application for the expansion of SP Northern Farming Operations’ Piggery in Lundavra, near Goondiwindi, has been lodged with the Goondiwindi Regional Council. The expansion would allow the piggery to house around 110,000 pigs at any time and would make it one of the largest piggeries in Australia. This will have a detrimental impact on the environment, the local ecosystem, as well as resulting in the confinement and suffering (and ultimately, the slaughter) of hundreds of thousands of animals every year.
The Goondiwindi Regional Council is was taking public submissions regarding this application until 27/07/21.
Update 28/07/21: Thank you to the more than 2300 of you who lodged a submission to speak up for the millions of pigs, as well as the wildlife and the nearby school that will be negatively impacted by this factory farm.
We will keep an eye on this development as the process progresses and update here when we hear more.
