The aim of this campaign is to stop factory farming

What is factory farming, factory farming is a system of rearing livestock using highly intensive methods, by which poultry, pigs, or cattle are confined indoors under strictly controlled conditions. My goal is to make people become more aware of what factory farming is which will hopefully lead to the end of factory farming.

Currently Worldwide about 70 billion animals are reared for food and on top of that 2 in 3 of those animal are now factory farmed.

Poultry is one of the most commonly factory farmed animals. The beaks of chickens, turkeys and ducks are often removed in factory farms to reduce the excessive feather pecking and cannibalism seen among stressed, overcrowded birds. Egg-laying hens are sometimes starved for up to 14 days, exposed to changing light patterns and given no water in order to shock their bodies into molting. It’s common for 5%-10% of the hens to die during the forced molting process

Despite the market showing cows happily grazing in a green field, Dairy cows typically live to their third lactation before being culled, naturally a cow can live for 20 years.

Factory farming is often associated with cramming as many animals in a small space, confining so many animals in one place produces much more waste then the surrounding land can handle. As a result, factory farms are associated with various environmental hazards, such as water, land and air pollution.

Pigs, chickens and cattle waste has waste has polluted rivers and contaminated groundwater in 17 states.

It has been shown that factory farmed animals are not as good for our health, A typical supermarket chicken contains more than twice the fat, and about a third less protein than 40 years ago

Animals are fed corn, wheat and soy that are grown through intensive industrial farming that use large amounts of pesticides, which can remain in their bodies and are passed on to the people who eat them, creating serious health hazards in humans.

For the small amount of time that the animals in factory farms are alive they are treated in the most inhumane way. Female chicks are debeaked at a young age, most commonly having a portion of their beaks seared off with a hot blade. Debeaking ment to stop the chickens from feather-peaking that is the result of stress full situations caused by being stuffed into a tiny cage. The male chicks are of no use to the factory farms and as a result 260 million are killed each year the methods they use to kill this helpless chicks include being sucked through a series of pipes onto an electrified kill plate, being ground up alive and fully conscious in a macerator or being gassed. It is clear that the people in charge of this live without a conscience but as a society we need to stop them or it WILL get worse.           

Use the second key arguments from your research. Be sure to support opinions with facts and evidence 

Factory farms are not only ruining the lives of countless animals but they also produce 37% of methane gas emissions, which has more than 20 times the global warming potential then carbon dioxide. Not only do they produce ridiculous amounts of methane gas but they also globally, deforestation for animal grazing and feed crops is estimated to emit 2.4 billion tons of CO2 every year.

 Manure contain traces of salt and heavy metals, which can end up in bodies of water and accumulate in the sediment, concentrating as they move up the food chain.

Animals experience life in many of the same ways we do. “Perhaps in the back of our minds we already understand, without all the science I've discussed, that something terribly wrong is happening. Our sustenance now comes from misery. We know that if someone offers to show us a film on how our meat is produced, it will be a horror film. We perhaps know more than we care to admit, keeping it down in the dark places of our memory-- disavowed. When we eat factory-farmed meat we live, literally, on tortured flesh. Increasingly, that tortured flesh is becoming our own” ― Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals This is disgusting in should not be happening as a society we should not be able to sleep know that animals are being tortured so we can have cheap food, and if we can shows what type of society we really are!

It is important for us to know and to be able to see where our foods a coming from it is necessary for governments to force companies to clearly label foods that are made from factory farms and label ones that are made full range this will allow us to make our own decisions rather than filthy rich company shove literal trash down our throats. As a society we should not be allowing this to happen to animals sign this petition to stop eating factory farmed food and only eat free range foods.
