Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) CEO Wayne Pacelle spoke at a recent HSUS town hall meeting in Lincoln, NE, and rancher and supporter, Kevin Fulton, introduced Pacelle to the podium.

“I’ve been studying it for probably 20 years now and have been advocating a lot of different things over the years, before I even heard of HSUS,” says Fulton, “so what I found is that we have some common ground and that I can have a much bigger impact by teaming up with HSUS and trying to reach some common goals.”

Fulton believes that everyone in agriculture should be an advocate for improving practices that will enhance the welfare of animals.
