Farmers Paying it Forward to Domino’s

Cindy Zimmerman

This weekend has officially been declared “Thank Domino’s Ag Pizza Party Weekend” by the agriculture social media community. It is our way of saying thanks to the pizza corporation for not caving into the demands of HSUS (Humane Society of the U.S.) Last month, Domino’s Pizza shareholders voted against a resolution that would have required pork suppliers to stop housing gestating sows in stalls. Domino’s made that decision after consulting industry experts about what is best for the animals.

Thousands have joined “The Truth About Agriculture” movement called “Farmers Paying it Forward with Pizza” and are planning to purchase pizza from Domino’s this weekend to say thanks! They have even created a custom thank you note for people to print out and deliver to Domino’s.

When you get your pizza this weekend, make sure to take photos and share them on the Pizza Party FB page and tweet using the hash tag #agpizzaparty with handle @dominos.

  1. How stupid can you farmers get? Just keep celebrating animal cruelty and see who ‘pays it forward’. It will be your customers. We will pay our money forward to producers who practice humane farming. So sad you can’t figure this out.

    Name calling really doesn’t get a good point across. The definition of “humane farming” varies depending on who you are. To vegans it might mean NO meat livestock farming at all. To most livestock farmers it means taking good care of their animals according to the best management practices. To observers not in the industry, some management practices may seem cruel, like gestation crates, but they are usually in the best interest of the animals. In this case, so the sow does not roll over and crush the baby piglets. That would be cruel.

  5. Way to go Dominos… Another reason to boycott your salty greasy ‘product’… As if encouraging your teenaged drivers to speed, drive extremely recklessly etc. to deliver said product under 30min, isn’t enough.

  7. All beings capable of suffering deserve moral consideration. Clearly, profit trumps moral consideration for Dominos pizza. There is no compassion for animals who are capable of suffering.

    The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Gandhi
