Audio Article #32: Big Pharma and Big Farms

Episode Summary

Iceland, Argentina and Urugay are the main countries in which the PMSG business flourishes. These blood or vampire farms extract the blood of pregnant mares. Big pharma extracts the hormone PMSG from this blood. PMSG is used in industrial livestock farming, primarily in the pork industry, to increase the pregnancy rate of sows. No international industry standards exist to regulate this multi billion-dollar business. The EU has yet to put a stop to this practice and allows PMSG to be imported and farmed.
