A tired pig.

In Australia, pigs are primarily raised for meat (e.g pork, bacon). There are just under 300,000 pigs in Australia. After 1970, the University of Melbourne set up a pig centre developing specialised nutritionists for the pig industry. As a result no part of the pig is wasted and in addition, practices to restrain and handle pigs are done as ethically as possible.
