FROM Farm Sanctuary

The USDA closed a loophole and banned downed cattle from being slaughtered and entering the human food supply. This ban needs to be extended to all species of livestock, including pigs, sheep and goats.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

All animals suffer when they are unable to stand and walk on their own and are pushed and prodded to the slaughter line. Protections need to be expanded to all species.
