65+ Organizations and Individuals Endorse Open Letter on the Importance of Animal Agriculture in the Time of COVID-19 and Beyond

Fri, 05 Jun 2020 10:25:47 CDT

65+ Organizations and Individuals Endorse Open Letter on the Importance of Animal Agriculture in the Time of COVID-19 and Beyond - Leading academics across four continents have joined U.S., Canadian and international organizations representing millions of farmers, producers and veterinarians to sign an open letter pushing back against misinformation around animal agriculture during the pandemic.

Signatories -- including the Animal Agriculture Alliance, World Veterinary Association, and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) -- clarified that domestic livestock production is safe and has not played a role in the spread of COVID-19, despite recent unfounded claims.

The letter calls for governments and authorities to reassure consumers around the safety of meat, milk, eggs and fish while also working with farmers and veterinarians to share lessons and expertise around animal health.

This has been signed by more than 65 farmer groups, producer associations, veterinarians and researchers, including:
U.S. associations like Animal Agriculture Alliance, North American Meat Institute and American Feed Industry Association
academics from UC Davis, Iowa State, and University of Arkansas, and
Former USDA Undersecretary for Food Safety, Richard Raymond.

This is alongside similar global, European and Canadian groups.

The Open Letter is available online at: https://medium.com/@LivestockLetter
