When Matthew visits an intensive farm, he discovers it is a complex business. Most farmers use small cages called farrowing crates, which are just big enough for a sow to lie down while her piglets suckle. They are designed to protect the piglets from being crushed by the sow, which happens more regularly on free-range farms. But is the confinement of the sow worth it for the sake of keeping more piglets alive?
