Location
University of Minnesota Law School, Walter F Mondale Hall, Room 25

Join us for the panel discussion, “Factory Farming in Minnesota: Time for a Change?”

The discussion will examine the social justice, environmental, and animal welfare impacts of factory farming in Minnesota. Factory farming is a system of rearing livestock using intensive methods, by which poultry, pigs, or cattle are confined indoors under strictly controlled conditions.

The panelists will include:

  • Sonja Trom Eayrs, a family law attorney and a farmer’s daughter
  • Colleen Carpenter, a faculty member in theology at St. Catherine University, who has written a book that discusses eco-theological issues
  • Tim Culver, an attorney and Robina Legal Fellow with the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy
  • Jeff Johnson, faculty member in philosophy at St. Catherine University, who teaches courses on food ethics and ethics of eating certain animals
  • Chris Peterson, a family pig farmer and advisor to the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project

Those interested in this panel may also wish to read our December blog post on factory farming in Minnesota.
