Humane Society exec to discuss responsible farming on Oct. 15

You’ll think before you take your next bite on Oct. 15 when Joe Maxwell, who has the dual role as a pig farmer from Missouri as well as an executive with The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), will educate Greenwich-area residents with a talk entitled Humane Farming: The Consumers’ Role in Fixing Our Food System Perspectives from a Fourth Generation Pig Farmer.

Members of the public are invited to learn how to support responsible farming and future legislative campaigns to address inhumane practices. Across the country, The HSUS works to end the most inhumane agricultural practices such as the use of gestation crates, which immobilize pigs for years on end.

The HSUS also works with state agriculture councils to promote humane sustainable agriculture.

Joe Maxwell, vice president of outreach and engagement for The HSUS previously held positions including president of the Association of Family Farmers and Missouri’s Lieutenant Governor.

The talk will take place Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Greenwich Library’s Cole Auditorium. For more information call the library at 203-622-7900.
