What is the RSPCA’s view on nose rings for pigs?

The RSPCA believes that pigs must not be nose ringed to prevent them from rooting and foraging, as the nose ring unreasonably restricts their normal behavioural patterns. Instead, pigs should be provided with alternative substrate to allow foraging behaviour, while at the same time preventing adverse effects on the environment.
