| The idea that this ban on downers would be over turned is completely without any consideration to the people and the animals that suffer from being left to suffer. This has to stop and to protect humans and the animals that suffer. We the consumer have told you over and over that we do not want these animals to be treated this way and now we read you are trying to change the downer farm bill. The United States lags far behind other countries when it comes to the welfare of farm animals and we could take some pointers from them.
It is time to protect both humans and animals and to keep this Farm Bill alive. They deserve the protection from the barbaric conditions that we keep them in, and the public deserves meat free from disease.
