On today’s factory farms, animals are crowded by the thousands into soiled,windowless sheds and limited to wire cages, development crates, infertile soil lots,and other cruel detention systems. These animals will in no way lift up their families,root around in the dirt, make nests, or do everything that is natural and important to them.Most won’t even feel the sun on their backs or inhale fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for killing. The green pastures and quiet barnyard scenes of years past are now far memories.

The factory farming industry strives to maximize output while minimizing costs always at the animals’ expense. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die.

Cows, calves, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and other animals live in extremely stressful conditions:

• Kept in small cages or jam-packed sheds or on filthy feedlots, often with so little space that they can’t even turn around or lie down comfortably
• Deprived of exercise so that all their bodies’ energy goes toward producing flesh, eggs, or milk for human consumption
• Fed drugs to fatten them faster and keep them alive in conditions that could otherwise kill them
• Genetically altered to grow faster or to produce much more milk or eggs than they naturally would (many animals become crippled under their own weight and die just inches away from water and food)

When they have finally grown large enough, animals raised for food are crowded onto trucks and transported over many miles through all weather ends, typically without food or water, to the slaughterhouse. Those who survive this nightmarish journey will have their throats slit, often while they are still conscious. Many remain conscious when they are plunged into the scalding-hot water of the defeathering or hair-removal tanks or while their bodies are being skinned or hacked apart.
