It's time to End Factory Farming
Factory farming is the largest source of animal cruelty in the world. Factory farming or intensive animal farming is the intense and confined farming of animals such as pigs, cows, and birds. Otherwise known as “concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs),” or “intensive animal agriculture,” factory farms are industrial facilities that raise large numbers of animals, mostly indoors, in conditions intended to maximize production at a minimal cost.
The majority of animals farmed for food live in conditions that cause suffering and stress. Treatment of farm animals is the world’s biggest animal welfare issue – and it’s getting bigger. By 2050, livestock production will be twice what it was in 2000. Right now, more than 70 billion animals are farmed for food each year – two-thirds in conditions that mean they can’t move freely or live naturally. Most of them live in appalling conditions and are not provided with good lives. When it comes to better treatment and welfare of farmed animals, the issue is mostly neglected because farm animals are considered to be products.
The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different.
Thousands of animals are tortured for food in the farming industry. Most of our consumption, be it meat, dairy or eggs come from immunologically compromised animals which are confined to cramped, unhygienic conditions and transported long distance without proper handling and care. Such farms are closely linked to other critical concerns, including zoonotic disease outbreaks, water pollution, overuse of antibiotics and development of antimicrobial resistance. The rate at which meat production and consumption is increasing might be devastating for our planet. It is time to rethink farming.
A Sustainable Food System is the key to End Factory Farming
By increasing the demand for plant-based foods we can, in turn, reduce reliance on farmed animals and make higher welfare production systems—with more space, fewer antibiotics, healthier growth, and more natural environments—more feasible. We can transform our food system to be more sustainable and kinder to animals, and significantly improve the overall health of animals and humans.
A great way to continue helping farmed animals daily is to eat more plant foods and fewer animal proteins. The immense scale at which we are producing and consuming meat today has negative implications on our health and the planet.
Roughly three-quarters of all antibiotics sold each year are marketed for use in farm animals rather than humans. Antibiotics are used routinely to prop up low welfare practices on factory farms.
Moving the world to eat less meat
There is a way to continue eating meat and take cruelty off the menu at the same time.
Make The Change
By making small changes to your lifestyle, like adding a meat-free day to your week and choosing higher welfare, you can create better lives for farm animals.
Remember, the easiest way to find out where meat comes from is to ask – ask your supermarket, your favourite fast-food restaurant, your local café. If they don’t serve higher welfare, they should, so keep asking.
Part of my becoming a vegetarian was that I would look at my burger, then look at my dogs, and I wasn’t able to see a difference.
How You Can Help
- Less demand for meat and dairy means less suffering for animals - buy more plant-based food instead!
- Buy higher welfare when you can. It's better for animals, you and the planet
- If you're not sure where the meat at a restaurant or supermarket is from: ask
- Spread the word about higher welfare. Together, we can take cruelty off the menu
