Animal Welfare Best Practices & Science

<< Back
We all understand the importance of humane animal handling and providing the best comfort to our livestock and poultry at the end of their lives. Not only does this reduce any potential pain and suffering of the animal, but it also produces higher quality meat that is tastier and more nutritious for the eaters. It also creates a calm working environment and makes life easier on the staff of any meat processing facility. And of course, it provides necessary compliance with regulations.
