According to the agreement, Grandin will “seek to evaluate and improve the company’s animal welfare and handling practices in Brazil.” This agreement is in addition to the agreement already established in the United States.
The “new collaboration will validate animal welfare practices in Brazil-based JBS plants and feedlots.” The agreement also aims to improve plant operations and support JBS in working with producers to bring good animal welfare practices to the farm level.
