Cargill Inc. announced phasing out crates for sows

Cargill Inc., agribusiness company based in Wayzata, Minnesota, recently announced in a recent letter to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) that they plan to phase out gestational crates for pigs. These crates, approx. 2-foot-by-7-foot, do not allow the pregnant sows to turn around, and cause intense stress and suffering to the animals. Instead, Cargill plans to move to "group sow housing" completely.

What farm animals must endure throughout their lives is unimaginable to us. The phasing out of gestational crates is a step towards less abusive treatment. While the animal industry responds and acts according to consumer demands by improving their almost non-existent animal welfare regulations, the transition to a plant-based diet would be most effective at reducing animal suffering. It also shows obedience to God in taking good care of His/Her Creation.
