If you care about animals or food safety, this news will concern you.
New regulations will allow facilities to increase slaughter speeds, while reducing the number of trained government inspectors on the lines. In other words, the responsibility of food safety oversight is largely shifted into the hands of slaughter plant employees. Combine this with faster speeds on the kill floor and the result is problems that can – and do – go unnoticed.
An exclusive Hormel Foods supplier, QPP kills about 1,300 pigs every hour operating under the high-speed pilot program. That’s more than 21 pigs per minute, making QPP one of the fastest pig-killing facilities in the nation .When no one thought the public or USDA was watching, behind the slaughterhouse’s closed doors, documented cases of pig carcasses covered in feces and abscesses being processed for human consumption, and workers – under intense pressure to keep up with high line speeds – beating, dragging, and electrically prodding pigs to make them move faster.
NSIS may also allow higher numbers of sick and injured pigs too weak even to stand (known as “downers”) to be slaughtered for food. As documented, these animals endured particularly horrific abuses as they were forced to the kill floor in a desperate attempt to keep the slaughter lines moving as fast as possible.
A letter from 60 members of Congress to the USDA stated “the available evidence suggests the HIMP will undermine food safety, we are concerned that these new rules are being pushed by the industry to increase profits at the expense of public health.”
What will it take to make you open your eyes? Stop supporting this violent industry.

One of my customers had an emergency vet visit recently that was paid for out of her mom's summer school funds. Any chance you can help her out or share? link on her profile #repost@airicamoore

Hey all, I put the link on my story page. Doc is doing much better today. I had to take her for an emergency visit to the vet last Saturday. I woke up to a gruesome scene. She tried to pass an egg overnight and couldn’t. She now has her dummy eggs and has been sitting on them. She is still on NSAIDs for inflammation and pain and will be on antibiotics and calcium for a little while. I had to dip into my summer school funds and am trying to get back on track again. Feeling humbled but any donation is appreciated.
Cheesin' so hard about his Earth Day walk with to the studio with mom 👱🏻♀️🐶❤🌍 We saved carbon emissions, and got roughly 4 miles of exercise and sun soaked bliss. We even picked up a couple pieces of trash along the way! (Well, one of us did. The other has no thumbs👎). How are you celebrating Earth Day with your furry loved ones?
Happy #earthday everybun! 🌳 We only have one planet Earth and we must do all that we can do heal it and protect it, and all of its beauty, every single day.
Enjoy this video of Blanco digging tunnels and loving life. For anyone new here, this is an enclosed flower bed, where she can’t escape. ♥️
You can shop for Blanco inspired goodies and help out abandoned bunnies in need, especially around this time of year.

Much like this picture, animals are looking to us for preservation for the future. In celebrating #earthday2019 we need to remember that we are responsible for this world and all that inhabit it. We must protect all the precious resources we have been blessed with, and that includes all animals!
I could feel the weight of sadness in the world today. Between what happened in Paris and knowing the heartbreak my own family is still maneuvering as we arrive at the fifth anniversary of life without Tom, I could feel a weight so thick a knife could slice through it.
I think that when we encounter sad moments in life, it can quickly transition into a tunnel vision of everything wrong. And let's be honest, when you look around, it's easy to be overwhelmed with the hurt that exists, and is very real, in our world. In these moments, I think it's essential to take time to honor and feel the hurt that comes, but not to let it linger any longer than it's welcome.
Life on my little farm has brought a lot of experiences with it, but one of the greatest lessons I've been learning has been about loss. I fell in love with the idea of this life long before I ever embarked on it and every day I am just awestruck by how much it challenges me and how much I'm learning about myself along the way. They don't say, "blood, sweat, and tears" for nothing and a well-rounded life has all of the above. So, to balance the heartbreak of today, I wanted to share some of the happy moments as well.
I've spent the last two mornings laying under the Airstream checking on my little piglet, Emily, before finding my spot on the milking stanchion next to Buttercup. I've been in my head a lot, and I've been thinking about you -- all of the people in my life (who I know a little bit or a lot) and all the snapshots of your lives you share on social media. I've spent time watching the sun rise and set as it ramps up for summer. And I've been working on being unplugged and present while I reflect on how interwoven all of our stories are.
I know today was hard, but I want you to know that I was thinking of you and in my mind, I was hoping that you are out there somewhere smiling. And that made me smile.
