Animal-welfare expert Temple Grandin, speaking at Fresno State University, suggested that live video feeds from livestock operations could help educate the public and build consumer confidence in the ways producers treat their animals.

According to an article in the Fresno Bee, Grandin told the audience that while animal-rights activists use videos of abuse cases to attack the industry, farmers and ranchers need to do a better job of communicating their good practices to the public.  

She also pointed out that retailers and restaurants are becoming more interested in documenting the practices used on livestock operations that produce their food supplies.
