U.S. research lab lets livestock suffer in quest for profit
The New York Times
At a remote research center on the Nebraska plains, scientists are using surgery and breeding techniques to re-engineer the farm animal to fit the needs of the 21st-century meat industry. The potential benefits are huge: animals that produce more offspring, yield more meat and cost less to raise. These experiments are not the work of a meat processor or rogue operation. They are conducted by a taxpayer-financed federal institution called the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, a complex of laboratories and pastures that sprawls over 55 square miles in Clay Center, Neb. Little known outside the world of big agriculture, the center has one overarching mission: helping producers of beef, pork and lamb turn a higher profit as diets shift toward poultry, fish and produce.

Veterinarian headed to court over Internet advice
Weatherford Democrat
Texas veterinarian Ronald Hines in 2003 decided to begin offering advice, often free of charge, to animal owners around the world. Hines didn't touch or treat the animals, but owners valued his information for various reasons: some had no local veterinarian, others were broke. Local veterinarians in some cases were stumped. Or an animal owner just needed a hand to hold. Then, in 2013, Hines stopped dispensing advice about a specific animals when the State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners fined him $500, suspended his license and made him retake parts of the veterinary licensing exam. There were no allegations of his having harmed animals. Instead, the board says that Hines cannot practice — or give advice about a particular animal — without physically examining his patients. Early this month, a New Orleans federal appeals court heard oral arguments in the case, which Hines' lawyer says addresses free speech issues for anyone who uses the Internet to dispense information.
