For those who have been working for improvements in the horrible CAFO system as well as for those of us who have been praying for this cause have received wonderful news today from The HSUS.
Today was a bad day for me personally, but it is ending on a supremely happy note. Maybe you too have been praying every day that the CAFOs from hell would be dismantled. If so, I know that you share in the happiness of the HSUS and the other animal rights groups who have been working so hard to see this day coming closer to a reality.
Imagine -the world's largest food company is saying that cruelty on factory farms has to go. Today they announced that they will eliminate many currently held standard practices within its worldwide food supply chain.
Re this -the HSUS wrote: "....Nestle's new program will cleanse its supply chain of the following practices: confinement of sows in gestation crates, calves in veal crates and egg-laying chickens in cages; the forced rapid growth of chickens used for meat products; and the harsh cutting of the horns, tails and genitals of farm animals without painkillers."
HSUS further noted that because of these reforms, their announcement marks the most comprehensive animal welfare program by a global food retailer to date.

This is a movement away from the intensive confinement of animals on factory farms. Nestle is also encouraging food sustainability by promoting global Meatless Mondays whose message will appear on Lean Cuisine products.
Nestle adopted these new measures after dialogue with animal protection organizations which included The HSUS, Mercy for Animals, and World Animal Protection. God bless these organizations for their wonderful work in this most needed concern for animal welfare. And may He also bless the corporate heads at Nestle who are doing something that speaks of caring and compassion. Hopefully, their good example will be followed by other food producers.
I know that the animal welfare groups will not stop advocating for the humane treatment of farm animals until all of them are freed from the cruel confining cages, crates, and factory farms. And thank you Nestle for hopefully leading the way.

I have been concerned about animal suffering ever since
I received my first puppy Peaches in 1975. She made me take a good look at the animal kingdom and I was shocked to see how badly we treat so many animals. At 77, I've been a vegan for the (more...)
