Cooperation Benefits Farm Animals

May 2007: Steve Bjerklie, meat industry writer, notes that cooperation and conversation between the industry and animal advocates have accomplished more in favor of animal welfare than confrontation and argument. Public opinion seems to have played a crucial role.

Paul Shapiro, the Humane Society of the U.S.ís director of anti-factory farming campaigns, said "I think more and more people in the industry are understanding that itís unwise to defend what the public believes is indefensible."
