New Meat Mythcrusher Addresses Sow Housing

Monday, November 3, 2014

(American Meat Institute)

AMI and the American Meat Science Association (AMSA) released their newest Meat Mythcrusher video addressing sow housing. The video takes viewers on a tour of a sow housing operation to explain the complex humane handling considerations that go into choosing appropriate housing systems for pregnant sows and points out that there is no single correct answer for all operations.

The video features Stacy Scramlin, Ph.D., assistant professor of animal science at South Dakota State University and Janet Riley, AMI senior vice president of public affairs and liaison to the Animal Welfare Committee, touring a modern, biosecure hog facility where visitors must shower when entering and exiting to ensure the health of the pigs.

All of the videos and more are available at http://www.meatmythcrushers.com/ .
