Ag-Gag Laws And Public Trust

Ag-Gag Laws And Public Trust

Animal agriculture lobbyists have pushed for "ag-gag" laws that limit what footage advocates can show from factory farms. Research finds just the presence of such laws may erode public trust.

Consumers are often shocked when confronted with undercover footage from livestock farms that reveals sick, abused animals in terrible conditions. Unsurprisingly, farmers and others who are invested in the livestock industry have fought back by backing legislation to stop such footage and details from reaching the public. Such laws – sometimes referred to as “ag-gag laws” – attempt to protect the image of animal farming by restricting the flow of information to the public.
