Heather Causnett (Animals' magic, Letters, April 24) should be aware that the majority of people buy meat solely on price, and the only way to have low price is to farm intensively.

My pigs were farmed inside, but free on straw, but the low price means I no longer do the whole job, merely fatten for others.

She is right that a few pence per kilo extra to me would have made all the difference.

Farmers keep trying to promote higher welfare UK meat, but one of the main problems is still unclear and sometimes misleading labelling as to country of origin.
