Iceland: The hidden blood business

Our investigative teams have been researching blood farms in Iceland since 2019. There, the fertility hormone PMSG is obtained under cruel conditions. The hormone has been used for over 40 years – primarily in industrial piglet production. A public survey of the Icelandic population confirms that 66 percent oppose the extraction of PMSG. Experts from several industries (business, tourism, breeding associations) and researchers also criticise the extraction and use of the blood hormone PMSG. Our research since 2019 shows that nothing has improved for the horses so far. And yet, with a new regulation, the Icelandic government is allowing pharmaceutical company Isteka and around 90 blood farms to stay in the blood business for at least three more years.
