Pork Plant Clarification (FYI)[edit]

To answer a previous question, the USDA does allow downer pigs to be slaughtered.

Also, regarding design considerations... There have been some recent changes in design concepts for the movement of pigs into stunning systems. New designs have eliminated single-file corrals and have instead implemented a type of 'batch processing' method which moves small groups (about 8 for CO2 stunning--depends on machine design) of pig into the stunning area. This greatly reduces the stress level of the animal before stunning. We also eliminated prods and now use an automated herding system. I have seen the new Butina dual backloaders in action (CO2 stunning system) and it is much better than the old single-file system we replaced. In fact, to effectively pass an animal stress audit, you about have to eliminate single-file herding and prodding.

Etymology[edit]

The OD of Etymology doesn't corroborate the etymology offered for "Shambles," and the point of the passage seems to be to editorialize about slaughter, not to provide useful information. I cut it. (Ethan Mitchell, Feb 25, 2006)

Removed two unsourced paragraphs from lede[edit]

I removed two unsourced paragraphs from the lede. They had citation needed tags on them for quite a while now, and the information was significant enough that it requires citation. If somebody can provide sources to the information within, feel free to repost with the citations attached. Until then, the article is better off without them.

Hi Lgnlint, the second para you removed doesn't need a cite because it's written in very general terms and is obviously correct (though, having said that, the way it's written could be improved and cites added for anything specific). I've supplied cites for the first para you removed, except for the EU, which I can't find at the moment and have made invisible. SlimVirgin (talk) 17:50, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

A US ordinance 30 years before there was a United States?[edit]

"In 1747, an ordinance in the United States “forbade people from slaughtering cattle at their home." "  The proper source source of this ordinance should be stated, possibly it was a local city ordinance in one of the colonies.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.51.185.32 (talk) 03:09, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
