Farm animals are excluded from the U.S. Animal Welfare Act and don’t have legal protection while grown on the farm. The federal Humane Slaughter Act does not protect poultry so, chickens and turkeys, which make up over 95% of land animals killed for food, do not have protection from mistreatment at slaughter. These gaps in regulations have led to identification of species-specific animal welfare criteria such as cage-free and crate-free and development of 3rd party certifications. Measuring these supplier certifications and species-specific welfare attributes etc. are at the heart of this audit.
