Farmer responds to HSUS video
Created: 10/25/12 (Thu) | Topic: Education
The Humane Society of the United States took aim at pork producers on Wednesday (Food Day) by releasing a short animated video targeted at children.
“A Pig’s Tale” was created by HSUS to “take viewers into a pig factory farm” where “young pig Ginger is surprised to find out how pigs are treated on factory-style farms and hatches a plan to find a better life for herself and her friends.”
Arkansas native and cattle farmer Ryan Goodman responded to the film on his blog, Agriculture Proud. “The video and its use of emotional appeal to draw young viewers to HSUS’ agenda concerns me,” Goodman wrote.
He encouraged readers to consider other viewpoints about agriculture and suggested the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance as a resource.
