Today's Daily Dose: Humane farm-animal housing

VETERINARY MEDICINE

Untitled Document

“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.”

—Temple Grandin, PhD

From Improving the welfare of farm animals
