Columbia University Press

Opening with a recollection of showing the Temple Grandin biopic to his terminally-ill mother, emphasizes the ethical and political debates over shechita, the religiously-mandated techniques for kosher slaughter, emphasizing how antipathy towards kosher slaughter made kosher meat harder to produce, and concluding with a discussion of the collapse of the Agriprocessor meat company in 2008. Traces humane slaughter debates from the congressional hearings of the mid-1950s through the intervention of Temple Grandin in the 1970s-1990s.

Keywords:   humane slaughter, Hubert Humphrey, Temple Grandin, shechita, Agriprocessor
