We would like to draw your attention to what we understand are the practices of one of your suppliers -- Long Prairie Packing Company of Long Prairie, Minnesota. We have been told that they, unlike other major processing plants, continue to shackle and hoist conscious cattle upside-down when such painful and outdated methods can and should be replaced with the ASPCA pen or upright restrainer systems.
