I would like to do an activity in my Intro class about animal rights/welfare. I wanted to give groups a reading about a hot topic in the animal industries and have them discuss and present to the class what they think of the issue and we can then discuss as a class if everyone agrees. I need some help on coming up with a few more topics, I came up with these right now:


farrowing crates in the swine industry

laying hens in cages

de-horning cattle


Can anyone else help me out? I wanted to get around 5 or 6 so they are smaller groups. If you also have any good resources that show the whole picture I would appreciate those as well!
