Should a ban on castration not be organized by politics and laid down in law?

European politicians have discussed this subject. Together with European industry parties the ambition has been expressed to stop castration in 2018 in Europe. The European Union will not organize this via legislation, but calls on producers, processors and suppliers of pork, to realize non castration in the market place. The EU Commission sees to it that this process of transition is actually carried out and supports this goal. The latest developments show that the transition is in progress and fewer pigs in Europe are castrated.
