Gentle death

On Manitoba Egg Farmers’ adoption of Five Freedoms.

I would like to address those farmers who are concerned that animal welfare activists are trying to put farmers out of business. I belong to such a group called THEN, The Humane Education Network, which has an educate-advocate mandate and absolutely no interest in putting anybody out of business.We want to become better informed of the producers’ perspective and to remove the adversarial component that seems to be prevalent.

My household buys only free-run eggs and humanely raised pork and cheerfully pays the slightly higher prices. I personally believe that North Americans will never stop eating their burgers or bacon and eggs. This means the only remedy is to improve living-dying conditions for farmed animals.
