USDA To Release Summary
Of Animal Welfare Issues
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
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.
The publication includes sec
tions on care and maintenance of
fish in commercial aquaculture;
beef, dairy, equine production and
performance; fur farming; hand-

ling of crippled or nonambulatory
livestock; hunting and conserva
tion issues; poultry; rabbits;
sheep; and goats, swine and veal
There is an additional section ad
dressing animal exhibits, shows
and fairs.
Each paper is authored or co
authored by acknowledged ex
perts in the field. For example, the
section on the handling of crippled
or nonambulatory animals was
written by Temple Grandin, a re
newed animal scientist from Colo
rado State University, who is an
authority on animal handling and
welfare issues.
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.
