Pork producer loses lawsuit

Premium Standard Farms Inc., second largest pork producer in the US with headquarters in Kansas City, has lost a lawsuit over the stench their hog farms produce. On September 22nd, each of the three families involved were awarded $750,000 and an estate; and there are more than 50 such cases still pending. According to one plaintiff, the company’s actions in addressing the smell of waste from 350,000 pigs on 1,300 acres could be summarized as, “I see nothing, I smell nothing, and we do nothing.”

While the waste of such factory farms poses a serious threat to our health and the environment, the unimaginable pain, stress and terror hogs suffer should be of primary concern. These are God’s creatures who have instincts and needs; who experience joy and sorrow; and whose God-given rights are totally ignored.
