> What's Really Going on Down on the Farm?
> The Regulation of the Intensive Confinement of Farmed Animals
>
> The panel will explore issues surrounding the use of modern intensive
confinement systems by the agriculture industry for raising farmed
animals.
Topics to be discussed include:  What laws protect farm animals?  Do
intensive confinement systems violate these laws? Are intensive
confinement
systems cruel?  Is the agriculture industry appropriately regulated from
an
animal welfare perspective?  If not, what is the appropriate venue for
reform?
