The Humane Society of the United States is working with farmers and ranchers to raise standards of care for animals on the farm. Family farmers are often threatened by factory farms where animals are treated like commodities, and HSUS’s Rural Affairs program helps provide a platform and voice for those farmers who share our passion for high standards of animal welfare—for the sake of animals, the land, and local communities.

Agriculture Advisory Councils

Our State Agriculture Advisory Councils and our National Agriculture Advisory Council spotlight farms using best practices and give them a platform to voice their concerns about the factory farms that are devastating rural communities. They also help family farmers switch to higher welfare practices. Learn More »
