Foster Farms, J.S. West and all you other farmers and ranchers had better wake up and smell the brimstone.
The Humane Society of the United States has as its stated goal to put you all out of business. Do you think they will be satisfied with just these latest concessions?
The HSUS spends less than 1 percent of its funds on actual animal welfare; the rest is used on propaganda, lobbying and salaries. The HSUS is well funded but is dwarfed by the economic might of the nation's agribusiness. You had better start using your muscle to expose the true agenda of the HSUS and dehorn them or their cancer will consume you.
The HSUS sets themselves up as self-proclaimed, self-appointed experts on animals. To allow them to be the arbiter of what is proper treatment of animals is a very bad joke. Who better knows how an animal is to be treated than those who are in the business? You all know that an animal won't thrive and produce if it stressed or mistreated. If they don't thrive, you lose money; that's the proper test, not some pinheaded animal rights demagogue.
