I believe the industry is doing brand damage by defending these inhumane confinement crates, and standing in the way of other animal welfare reforms.
It’s so clear that even Pork Magazine editorialized to pork producers, “[O]n the issue of gestation-sow stalls, at least, it’s increasingly apparent that you will lose the battle.” And the agribusiness publication Meatingplace editorialized, “Game over. For any pork producer still on the fence, the McDonald’s announcement makes the move inevitable, whether or not they are a McD’s supplier.”
So they don’t have to listen to The HSUS. They just have listen to voices within their own industry and among their customers.
