Industrialized Farming

The Nations Largest Beef Recall in History

Industrial agriculture is not only applied to crops of wheat or rice, it is also used on animals. Industrial agriculture has been developed as a perceived improvement of the economic, technological and consumer factors in the production of food. It promises food that is cheaper, safer and easier to produce. There is a continuing debate over the benefits and risks of factory farming. The issues include the efficiency of food production; animal welfare; whether it is essential for feeding the growing global human population; the environmental impact; and health risks. The debate is complicated by the differences in the way factory farming techniques are practiced around the world.
The rise of industrialized farming was the beginning of denying many basic rights of domesticated animals in the name of profit only. The excuse manufacturers use is that the world’s population is growing and the only way we can feed everyone is to produce food employing mass-production techniques. Given that there are many millions of starving people in third world countries, we see that the technique is not working. So, we are left with the profit motive only and we see that food, like any other commodity, is produced for whoever can pay for it, not for improving the lot of humanity.
In fact, factory farming may be contributing to third-world hunger in that large agricultural areas there are used to produce fodder for animals in our industrial farming system, thus denying the space for producing food for local populations. This is yet another example of globalization skewing local economies detrimentally?
Industrialized farming has severely restricted the freedom of animals to behave naturally. Industrialized processing reduces an animal’s basic right to move about in relative freedom, eat on its own terms, and reproduce following its natural cycles.  Denying these rights puts the welfare of animals in danger.
Mass production forces livestock into close proximity and away from natural environments, so they have to be kept healthy by force. To combat strains of bacteria that thrive in factory conditions, farm animals are subjected to excessive antibiotics or other medical substances; which then will become part of the meats that humans eat.

When you follow these links, in the page you come to, there are other suggestions listed down the right side. Explore these as well; some of them are very intriguing. Some show great discoveries we have made, whereas others display many examples of shameful behaviours by our “intelligent” species.  Also embarrassing is that the rest of us are willing to accept or live with such evils.  Read the facts, analyze and examine the truths, and think about what you can do to change the situation; and hopefully lead us to actually become the intelligent species that we think we are.
