Real story on Humane Society of U.S.

We have all seen the ads on television. Usually, they come from some celeb like Sheryl Crowe or Alex Baldwin etc. Watch this and get the real story about where those donations are used.  The money is also being used to lobby state legislatures to get referendums placed on ballots to outlaw certain animal husbandry practices like gestation crates, etc. 
We have not used them on this farm, however recently a veterinarian was here that was very familiar with their use was here on another matter. She said that sows do better in gestation crates. They have everything they need and are not hassled by other nosy sows. Less fighting and more contented mothers to be. That means better end products which is the desired outcome.

The Humane Society of the United States is not affiliated with your local pet shelter, but ads imply that they do.
