1990 National Cattlemen’s Association Statement on Animal Care

“I believe in the humane treatment of farm animals in continued stewardship of all natural resources.

I believe my cattle will be healthier and more productive when good husbandry practices used.

I believe that my and future generations will benefit from my ability to sustain and conserve natural resources.

I will support research efforts directed toward more efficient production of wholesome food supply.

I believe that it is my responsibility to produce a safe and wholesome product.

I believe it is the purpose of food animals to serve mankind and it is the responsibility of all human beings to care for animals in their care.”
