Housing solution shaping up in unusual design


by Hugh Maynard


As pressure mounts from radical animal rights groups to ban livestock agriculture altogether, work is also progressing on alternative means of housing and handling farm animals. While no amount of redesign in livestock facilities intended to enhance the welfare of production animals will ever satisfy some activists, the development work on new housing systems is aimed at maximizing the animals well-being without sacrificing efficiency.
