Britain quickly outlawed the use of ruminant remains in cattle feed, and in August 1997 the United States and Canada did so as well. S. agriculture officials admit, however, that only about 75 percent of ranchers complied with the ruling at first. ) Furthermore, the disease takes years to develop, and 30 I s s u e s i n A n i m a l We l f a r e a n d A n i m a l R i g h t s cattle that could have eaten tainted feed before the ban were still alive in the early 2000s. Critics of this feeding practice, and of intensive farming in general, thus were not surprised when a cow with BSE was discovered in Alberta, Canada, in May 2003 and another, also apparently born in Canada, was found in the state of Washington in December 2003.

Many of the worst conditions the animal groups cite, they claim, occur on only a small number of farms or no longer occur on any farms. Furthermore, the trade groups say, there is no verifiable way to tell what emotions—if any—intensively farmed animals experience. Animal rights organizations never mention the positive features of intensive farming, supporters of the practice point out. Keeping animals indoors protects them from weather, attacks by predators, and some diseases. Intensive farming technology has produced more nutritionally balanced feeding and more effective veterinary care than was possible on traditional farms.

Animal rights groups have vowed to continue fighting for the change. As with intensive farming, public feeling against the use of animals in experiments has been stronger in Europe than in the United States, and legislation has been more strict and appeared sooner. Britain began to regulate laboratory animal use 90 years before the United States did, for example. In 1986 that country replaced its 1876 act with the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act, which covers all experiments using vertebrates, including rats and mice, and this act was further expanded in 1999.
