Livestock Building Security

This from your Indiana Farm Bureau:

We recently learned that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management seeking the size and locations of all permitted swine facilities in Indiana. This request was signed by Hannah Conner, a former attorney with the Waterkeeper Alliance now employed by HSUS. It is possible that this information will be used to target a farm on the list with either environmental litigation or undercover video.

In order to safeguard against these potential threats, remain vigilant for infiltration by undercover activists and maintain the highest level of environmental stewardship and compliance with IDEM regulations.

Attached is information provided by the Animal Agriculture Alliance (AAA) for your review in order to guard against possible intrusion by unfriendly forces. This information outlines critical areas of facility security and hiring practices and includes simple steps to strengthen the security on your farm. If you have additional questions please contact Greg Slipher, Livestcok Development Specialist at Indiana Farm Bureau:  317-432-3816
