Sow in Farrowing - There are plenty more reasons than just the red light of heat lamps in a pig farm that makes one liken them to Hell. However, the red glow undoubtedly contributes to bringing such words and thoughts to mind.

Pig farms are often dilapidated filthy sheds; missing wall and roof panels are not uncommon, as well as leaking water, rodents, wild cats, cockroaches and maggots.

The waste of the pigs seeps through the slats in the floor, but only if there are any slats and they not blocked, otherwise it will just build up around them. It then usually gets pushed to the edges of the pens creating a slushy pool of urine and faeces that they are forced to live in.

This, coupled with the rotting bodies of perished runt piglets seen at every commercial pig farm, makes the smell of these farms overwhelmingly foul. They can be smelt from miles away and have caused some fellow investigators to dry heave once in the vicinity of them.

And this is where she lives all the time. Only ever leaving once she is sent to slaughter. This is her Hell.
