I believe it is important to ban the slaughter of downed animals for animal feed. If it is profitable for farmers they will not attempt to prevent the conditions that contribute to downed animals. The animals have undergone cruel enough conditions already, to prolong their suffering in order to ship them to a slaughter house is almost unthinkable. Please do not support the effort to use downed animals in animal feed.
