NC farms win Animal Welfare Approved grants

Congrats to the several North Carolina farms that won Good Husbandry grants from Animal Welfare Approved. The Alexandria, Va.-based group’s standards are the most rigorous and progressive animal care requirements in the nation, and the only ones to require that animals be raised outdoors, on pasture or range.

Details on recipients are here, and below is a quick list. I think NC may have been granted the most awards of all.

Acre Station Meat Farm, Pinetown, NC-New low-stress loading dock for livestock

High Ground Farm, Holly Springs, NC-Predator Control

Joyner Farm, Faison, NC-Mobile shelter for pastured sheep production

Nelson Land and Livestock, Wadesboro, NC-Mobile processing unit

R. Turner Farms, Inc., Albertson, NC-Mobile housing for pastured hogs

Williams Farm, Magnolia, NC-Utilizing Port-A-Huts on harvested cropland for hogs
