Undercover footage taken by Farm Watch shows dozens of rats crawling over living and deceased pigs in wet, filthy and cramped enclosures. The fact that the meat from this farm is certified under New Zealand’s pork care label demonstrates that these labels are meaningless. A TV news station in New Zealand ran an excellent in depth story about the farm, the regulators and the broken system.
News & Opinion
Factory farms, or concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), are inherently inhumane because the animals are treated like commodities. In CAFOs, pigs, chickens and cows are mutilated, confined, kidnapped, beaten and deprived of the ability to do anything that comes naturally to them. If you oppose animal cruelty, then please go vegan and educate others about the horrors of factory farming.
