The profession of butchery is under threat


After the slaughterhouse in Sæby was shut down, another one in Ringsted followed, leaving 1,200 people unemployed. Why? Danish farmers prefer to export living pigs to be slaughtered in the market where they will be sold. For them, it is more financially attractive to send piglets to Poland and Germany, to be fattened up and slaughtered there.
