Online Petition Urges Domino

As the American Farm Bureau Federation was having an Ag Pizza Party – encouraging folks to thank Domino’s Pizza for relying on animal experts to determine the best way to raise farm animals – a customer petition on change dot org collected more than 115-thousand signatures from people in all 50 states asking the chain to stop purchasing pork from suppliers using gestation crates. Feedstuffs reports that a long-time Domino’s customer from Texas decided to launch the petition campaign after seeing undercover video footage of gestation crates from the Humane Society of the United States. While positioned as a meat eater and non-animal rights activist in the online petition – Feedstuffs writes that online searches show the customer is an HSUS supporter. is dedicated to serving the agricultural industry in the Carolinas and Virginia with the latest ag news, exclusive regional weather station readings, and key crop market information.
