Issue Areas/Comments
I am deeply opposed to the use of "downer" cows in animal feed. This amendment reverses an earlier position which regulated the use of "downed" animal carcasses in animal feed. Please do not amend the feed ban regulations as this caters to the meat industry and does nothing to encourage the more humane treatment of factory-farmed animals. This amendment would, in fact, serve as an incentive for the industry to promote cruelty and intolerable and inhumane practices. Please do not amend BSE feed ban regulations.
