The Colorado Agriculture Council of The Humane Society of the United States works to pursue market opportunities for farmers and ranchers whose agricultural practices adhere to animal welfare standards.The agriculture council also act as a sounding board on agriculture policy. The members of the council reject practices like gestation crates, veal crates, battery cages and tail-docking of dairy cows.
These producers go against the grain. It’s not easy being humane in a world of Big Ag CAFOs that put profits above animal welfare, worker rights and public health. If you must eat meat please support these farmers and ranchers. Let them know their voice in the fight to loosen big agribusiness’ grip on farm animals is being heard.
