Dairy-MAP, Chester County USDA To Release Summary Of Animal Welfare Issues UNIVERSITY PARK (Centre Co.) —Experts in 14 areas of ani mal welfare and animal health have compiled a comprehensive anthology of discussion papers for the U.S. Department of Agricul ture detailing how animals are raised and cared for on the na tion’s farms. “The discussion papers are helpful in answering critiisms Cram animal protectionists about different practices used in animal production,” says Lowell Wilson, Penn State Professor of animal science, who co-wrote the an thology’s papers on special-fed veal and animal exhibits, fairs and shows. “In addition, the papers should help answer questions from the general public about how animals are raised on the modem farm.” The papers also address man agement practices that need to be researched further or perhaps changed to enhance animal well being, ethics of animal production systems and the quality or whole someness of animal products.

Each discussion paper also lists literature citations and suggested readings. The lists include not only scientific publications for specific animal production prac tices, but also books and articles that criticize specific animal pro duction practices. “An overview of the argument for and against vegetarianism is presented within one of the mote comprehensive papers,” Wilson says.
