“Scientific and ethical considerations call for improved and humane farm-animal housing (e.g. phasing out sow stalls and finding ways to make group housing work) and handling in slaughtering houses. However, the farm-animal industry is only slowly embracing animal welfare standards and the practical systemic audits that assess humane treatment by measuring directly observable outcomes in the field.”
