Exposing Factory Farms May Get Tougher

A growing movement among Big Ag’s industrial farmers is the attempt to prohibit exposure of livestock facilities by undercover videographers such as the U.S. Humane Society investigator who posed as an employee to film conditions in an egg factory in Iowa.

According to Grist, “industrial farmers have convinced Iowa state lawmakers to move an anti-whistle-blower bill through the state legislature.” Although Grist believes “the likelihood of the bill’s passage is uncertain thanks to Democratic control of the Iowa Senate,” anything can happen. Other states may follow suit.

When is Big Ag going to stop treating animals inhumanely?
