Humane Euthanasia Program

In 2018, the JBS USA Pork animal welfare team developed a consistent captive bolt stunning program and standard operating procedures for all of our hog processing facilities. In the event that a hog arrives at our facility who is unable to walk to our stunning areas, it is our ethical obligation to euthanize that animal humanely.  As part of that program development, training on captive bolt stunning was conducted with all team members who are responsible for euthanizing hogs in our facilities.
