USA: Support The Call For The Meat Animal Research Center To Be Closed Down.

USA

IDA shut down oct 15

Dear Mark:

A secret branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) called The U.S. Meat Animal Research Center has recently been exposed for horrifying experiments on meat-producing animals, so inhumane that even the meat industry itself is rejecting the federal agency’s grisly methods and glaring lack of oversight.

In an attempt to bolster birth rates and factory farm profit margins despite declines in American meat consumption of up to 36%, every year the research center ‘modifies’ some 30,000 cows, pigs and sheep – ending in starvation, ghoulish genetic mutation, and surgical mutilation. With death rates for baby and adult animals greater than THREE TIMES industry standards, mangled corpses are buried en masse in a place called the “Dead Pit”‘ flying in the face of a growing U.S. focus on humanely raised meat.

The taxpayer-funded agency has lain hidden on the Nebraska plains for nearly 50 years since Congress approved its existence.

The USDA says they have addressed the problems.  IDA believes the facility must be closed!

We need your immediate help.

Please donate today to help IDA fight to close this despicable facility.

Please email USDA head Tom Vilsack now and tell him it’s time to shut down the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center.

Thank you for whatever you can do, today!
