As the song goes, "Monday, Monday" and here we are with the headlines that are in the news for animal agriculture around the world.  Popping up as usual is the H1N1 situation worldwide, and the issues we may be facing this fall with the full blown flu season.  Other animal agriculture headlines from around the world are here too...check them out...

Pigs Tattooed In Beijing 'Art Farm'
This is where I tend to have a problem - tattooing an animal, as conceptual art, then once they have been euthanized for meat, selling the hides to collectors as 'art'...anyone have a problem with this? Anyone think that you could do this anywhere BUT China?  Be sure to NOT skin off and frame my tattoo(s) after I die...
