Uses a carbon dioxide gas chamber to suffocate hundreds of pigs per day. Investigated and exposed by Farm Transparency Project in mid 2023 - the first gas chamber footage captured in South Australia since Big River Pork in 2014.

Pigs are forced into the gas chamber using a painful electric prodder. Often the prodder is used on their faces, and even their genitalia, sometimes when they have nowhere to go. Despite the pain of the electric shocks, pigs desperately avoid entering the gas chamber.
