DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Animal scientist Temple Grandin has criticized legislation that restricts or bans underground videos in feedlots and confinements.
The Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/UodFwx ) reports the animal rights authority told the Iowa Farm Bureau Wednesday that laws with such rules are "the dumbest thing."
The newspaper reports Gradin praised beef trimmings, or so-called "pink slime" as a good product. She says its production should never have been suspended.
Grandin also spoke against sow gestation crates, a method of enclosure used in pig farming. It's a controversial issue between hog producers and animal rights activists.
