Strathvean Piggery, near Tarcutta NSW, was exposed by Animal Liberation ACT in September 2013 with the release of covertly-obtained photos and footage depicting the same conditions seen earlier at Wally's Piggery, Allain's Piggery, Tennessee Piggery and Lansdowne Piggery.

These conditions include female pigs ('sows') confined to tiny metal and concrete cages known as sow stalls and farrowing crates, unable to turn around or take more than one step forward or backwards; dying and dead piglets; overcrowding of 'grower' pigs; general uncleanliness; and hard concrete floors for all the animals.
