Farm Fresh?

9,058,506,700 cows, pigs, and chickens are slaughtered a year in the United States. From birth, billions of animals are born, raised, and fattened just so they can become the rotisserie chicken at dinner or bacon on your plate in the morning.

As of 2015, 54% of people in the U.S. are “very” or “somewhat” concerned with how farmed animals are treated. These animals deserve the chance to be free. Factory-raised animals should be able to live a healthy, humane life, not be stuck in a space smaller than they are themselves. 

Female cows who are impregnated and held in captivity have been stripped of their freedom and rights. Many never see the sun, except in transport. Once they are born, they are transported to a barn. They are artificially inseminated, give birth, raise the baby, then the process happens all over again. In the wild, cows can live up to 20 years. In captivity, they typically live for 4-6 years. Male calves are killed almost immediately because they are seen as useless to the dairy industry.

Overall, animals should never be given such inhumane treatment.
