An old duffer who founded UKIP.... so far you have totally failed to produce a single shred of credible evidence to support your outlandish claims. At this point it is time to stop taking you seriously.
The EU does inspect pig odours, including dung:

Close to 200 pig units will be applying for IPC licences in Ireland in the next few years, as a result of the EPA Act of 1992 and European IPPC licensing requirements. The assessment of the odour impact of these pig units will be an important element of the licensing process, which will be carried out by the Environmental Protection Agency. Suitable criteria for ‘acceptable exposure’ to odours are required, in order to set, limit and target values for odour impact. Appropriate odour assessment methods are required to quantify emissions and, if required, to control and enforce licence conditions. To allow pig producers to manage the impact of odours, information is required on the relationship between production practice, housing types and odour emissions, as well as on suitable approaches to the abatement of odour emissions.
