Demand for “Humanely Raised” Hogs on the Rise

People are waking up to the cruel reality of modern animal agriculture and the demand for “humanely” raised pigs is rising.  

Please visit Demand Grows for Hogs That Are Raised Humanely Outdoors.

I think that the term “humane” is very misleading. “Less abused” is probably a better choice. Factory farms have set the bar so incredibly low that any improvement on the welfare of these animals is termed “humane”, and many people believe in this because deep down they don’t want to hurt God’s animals so they gravitate toward choices that seem to cause less or no suffering.

However, it’s important to note that even in the best farms God’s animals raised for food still suffer painful mutilations; still their babies, milk or eggs are stolen from them; and still every one of them faces the same fate: an early death that often involves much pain and terror.
