Humans of Farm Animal Welfare
World Day for Farmed Animals
When it comes to better treatment and welfare of farm animals, the issue is mostly neglected because farm animals are considered to be products. In India, around 50 million cows and buffaloes are farmed for their milk – more than in any other nation in the world. And many suffer in substandard conditions.
Approximately 40 billion chickens are suffering every day globally. Chickens are the most abused animal in the world and are suffering horrors due to intensive farming.
Thousands of animals are tortured for food in the farming industry. The majority of our consumption, be it meat, dairy, and eggs come from animals like cows, chickens, goats and other immunologically- compromised animals which are confined to cramped, unhygienic conditions and transported long distances without proper handling and care.
Several animal welfare organizations across India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, China and Philippines are coming together to raise their voice for these voiceless farm animals.
As World Animal Protection is continuously working for the welfare of farm animals in India, it is joining this movement across Asia on the occasion of World Day for Farmed Animals.
The time has come to improve the lives of farm animals and to move the world to protect farm animals.

Chickens Not Products
Swagatama Mukherjee ( Volunteer at World Animal Protection India) shares her views on the plight and miserable suffering of animals in farming. See the Morbid world of chickens through her eyes. Packed into tiny cages like sardines in a can, with no space to move or even stretch around, taken away from their mothers at an early stage, chickens in our society are viewed strictly as commodities or objects essential to sustain a growing population; catering purely to the gastronomical desires of a society shackled by capitalistic consumerism, fueled by want instead of necessity.
