The Twenty-Eight Hour law states that after twenty-eight hours of travel, livestock must be unloaded and providing feed, water, and resting area for at least five hours and the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act states that livestock must be provided with insensible pain prior to slaughter (Mench). Even with these laws intact, the US legislation has barely changed in relation to farm animals. Many use animal welfare as a recognition of animal sentience, but also believe nonhuman animals are not worthy of moral respect like humans (Freeman). But many organizations are starting to recognize animal welfare as a constituent feature of the product image and quality because consumers have demanded better food safety and animal health (Horgan & Gavinelli). As those demands become more frequent, two other federal farming acts are being considered in Congress.
Since humans started farming thousands of years ago crop and livestock production systems have been integrated. Integration of crop and livestock systems enhanced profitability and environmental sustainability of farms and communities. (Russelle, Michael P., Martin H. Entz, and Alan J. Franzluebbers) Crop and livestock systems have always went hand and hand, that is, until the 19th century when farming became specialized resulting in separation of crop and livestock enterprises. Unfortunately crop and livestock enterprise integration is not nearly as common as it once was in this region. But today there are still many farmers who choose integrate crop and livestock enterprises.
Raising Cattle across America Cattle are being produced all across the United States. From Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and from California to the Atlantic Ocean there are several thousand head of cattle being raised. However these cattle are all being raised the some way or under the same conditions. Ranchers in the north have to deal with snow and ice while the southern ranchers are dealing with mud, water, and, mosquitoes. The people raising cattle in the Midwest are faced with droughts and having to keep their crops and cattle watered.
From the slopes of the Yampa River Valley they dug for roots of the Yampa plant, during the summer they traveled east to the plains to hunt bison on foot and south to the Pueblos to raid and trade corn” (Isenberg, 34) The nomads depended on the bison for food, shelter, cloths, and small tools. Before Euroamericans arrived in North America, nomads hunted bison as they needed them, so they wouldn’t be wasteful. In the eighteenth century nomads “a... ... middle of paper ... ...ghteen hundreds there were seventy five million bison in North America. When the nomads and euroamericans started hunting them for their hides and using them for the main form of trade, along with other natural factors there population took a devastating turn for the worst. “By the eighteen eighties only a couple hundred bison had found refuge from commercial hunters, drought, and the destruction of their grazing land by farmers and livestock in Yellowstone national park” (Isenberg 164).
A lot of good has happened though, farmers have enrolled a total of 31 million acres in the conservation reserve program to protect the environment and provide the environment and provide a habitat for wildlife. Inception in 1985, the program has helped reduce soil erosion by 622 million tons and restored more than 2 million acres of Westland ("Goodman 4"). As this informational piece says new inventions, injections, livestock, strategies for farming, and much more has changed a lot over time. Although a lot of new things has been invented and farming has become a lot faster, injections, factory farming, and much more has been invented that is not healthy for people. The question still stands, "has farming gotten better or worse over time?"
