Hearing to Review Animal Concerns in Agriculture 

Members of the AVMA and other organizations attended a meeting of the House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture in May to review the welfare of animals in agriculture.

Some witnesses testified against the reality of factory farming, such as Barbara Determan, past president of the National Pork Producers Council, who said that America's pork producers raise their pigs humanely out of moral obligation and to protect their livelihood. Others, such as Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States, cited examples of widespread animal abuse as in the case of gestation stalls for pregnant sows and nonambulatory animals in the food supply.

The callousness of the meat industry representatives at denying the suffering and fear farmed animals experience depicts the greed and profit that drive this industry. God calls us to take care of Creation, and this invariable implies a just, compassionate and merciful treatment of all creatures.
