He stands for a people unworthy and animal suffering-generating agricultural system. For decades, we have experience in the agricultural and food economy unrestrained concentration processes to ever larger barns, farms, or battle groups. Good working conditions, animal welfare, and environmental and climate protection, too often on the track. The growth and agricultural export-oriented policy has a significant share in the scandal.We need regional processing and marketing structures. The Federal government, to decentralised abattoirs, mills, and food-craft to use. You must ensure fair working conditions and fair wages for all people in the value chain, as well as the urgently necessary reconstruction of the livestock production. In this point, the stimulus package of the Federal government, much too little.The recommendations of the competence network for livestock farming will provide better living conditions for pigs, cows and poultry, if the agricultural policy will implement it finally. It is welcomed that Minister of agriculture, Julia Klöckner has the weekend to the Central recommendations of the Borchert-Commission. You would have to have been already acting for a long time. To procrastinate rather than the process, we expect from the Minister of Klöckner now to take concrete steps to implement the recommendations of the Borchert Commission.Inhumane, cruel to animals and environmentally destructive conditions may not be associated with the production of meat, milk and eggs. The Signal can also be set in the next week the German Bundestag in its decision to Borchert Commission.We wish the employees affected, good and fast recovery.”For more information contact: Christian entrepreneurial, FEDERAL expert for agricultural policy, mobile: 01 74 / 3 93 21 00 christian.entrepreneurial(at)bund.net as well as the FEDERAL press office (Sigrid Wolff / Daniel Jahn / Judith friend / Heye Jensen), Tel.: (030) 2 75 86-425/-531/-497/-464, press(at)Federal.netZur Overview
