The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is at it again, attacking the agriculture industry in the name of animal welfare with misinformation and strong-arm tactics. The current target is the egg industry, but it’s clear that HSUS is positioning to migrate to all livestock industries. Please take a moment to read the “Call to Action” from INPAC, your Indiana Pork Political Action Committee – call your federal legislators to put a stop to HSUS goal of ending livestock farming.
After you make your call, click on the link to double your impact by sending an email message: Email to Congress
