So when do we pronnounce the gestation crate to be more humane than a breeding pen than creates aggression amongst sows. Its time to bring animal agriculture back to farmers and away from the vegan groups interested in eliminating animal agriculture. We can't win as showing an aggressive sow in any environment is detrimental to modern production practices. Everthing we do is horrible. We should do like the EU and not comply. Let the Arby's of the world wonder where their product will come from-put them out of businss for succumbing to HSUS' standards that have nothing to do with animal welfare and everything to do with enticing contributons. When do we have a voice in animal welfare. When does science trump sensationalism? Kiss the "Hot ham and cheese" goodby thanks to HSUS and their agenda aimed at eliminaing all animal agriculture.
