Factory Farming

April 18th, 2012

Factory farming refers to the process of raising livestock in confinement at high stocking density in farms that operate like factories – producing the highest output at the lowest cost. The main products of factory farming are meat, milk and eggs for human consumption. Factory farming is controversial as it consists of industrialized animal cruelty, widespread environmental destruction, resource depletion, and animal and human health risks.
