Release Date: January 01, 1995
Concern for animal welfare is emerging as a major component of Western social ethics. The central issue is the use of animals in research and in food production. Laws reflecting the new ethic have been passed worldwide. Rollin urges animal producers and agricultural scientists in the USA to address animal welfare problems now, before federal legislation forces the issue.
