But at the same time farmers should have a limit of water they can waste for their needs. There are some farmers that have dams that they own,so pretty much they can open the river when they want and the water will flow in a river for the animals to drink. I think that’s a waste of water because the water flows everyday and it just goes to waste. Some farmers might say that they need the water, that how are they just going to let more than 100 cows die. I think those people just care about the money, because it only helps their needs.
So what’s the end-result of the feed-’em-fast-and-cheap factory farmed method? Inferior food with negligible nutrients and more of the unhealthy fats. (Lipman 4) The food that you think is healthy really isn't. Cows are now more fatty than ever making them more appealing to buyers. also since corn cost less to buy than grass its a cheap
The environment depends a lot and may have a negative or positive effect on a cow. For example black cattle may have a hard time adapting and living in a hot environment with high solar radiation. Another limitation is that they inject cows with vaccines to make them stronger and have more muscle. Each year 30 million cows are sent to feedlot where they feed cattle with high proteins and hormones to produce more beef and have more protein, which is bad for them because it alters the healthy growing process. Not only does it affect their physical shape but also it causes a discomfort in their daily activities and diseases could be found.
However, scientists have done a scientific study that states, Almost all animals in the animal kingdom have a conscious and this isn’t new. “ Cows who don’t die on the way to the slaughter from exposure or traffic accidents are shot in the head with a captive-bolt gun and hung up by one leg then have their throats cut before finally being skinned and gutted. Some cows remain fully conscious throughout the entire process.”(So when will you cow meet its End?) I strongly believe that all animals have right which are being violated every day and every single second by factory farms, Animals should have the rights to equal consideration of their interest and prevent unjust suffering. 97% of the 10 billion animals tortured and killed each year are farm animals.
Some environmental effects that are occurring around factory farms are pollution and also decreasing in water. 1kg of beef takes 90 bathtubs of water!!!! If the animals were allowed to walk around and eat grass we would save water and grains because the water would be coming from the rain on the grass and the nutrients in the grain would be coming from the grass. The animals are malnutritions because of many causes like their surroundings and or just some of the factors the humans cause. “Farmers get more money for turkeys with enlarged breasts.
This was perhaps the beginning of a major change in agriculture that is still an issue today with farmers. This problem is that of large farmers and businesses forcing smaller farmers out of business by lowering the already marginal profitability farming on a small scale. This elimination of small competitors from the field of competition not only eliminated jobs, as shown in The Grapes of Wrath, but also led to the development of monopolies in today’s food industry. Although this is a natural result of capitalism, it cause several inherent problems, the most important is keeping food from being produced and consumed locally, which aids the financial standing of local areas, instead of centralizing it in major corporations. It also allows for the exploitation of laborers due to the lack of competition among different producers for wages and working conditions.
Companies did this, because they knew that farmers could not buy their goods from other businesses due to the fact that there were not any others in sight. Despite the hardships, the farmers united to fight this growing problem. The farmers during the Industrial Revolution had only adapted to the aspects that benefitted them and fought against the features of this era that harmed them. For example, although the farmers became more social and reliant on each other, they were not making as much money as they were before. Because of the decrease in revenue, they created the Farmer’s Alliance and the Populist platform to fight the big
Overfishing Overfishing means to deplete or exhaust a stock of fish or shellfish by excessive fishing. This may not seem like a topic that is ever worth argueing over, or worth making laws for, but little do people know that the consequences of overfishing will soon affect the entire world. This will not only affect ocean life, it will also affect humans, as well as all other living organisms lives as well. There are already several overfishing laws existing, but they are easily avoidable and is done so with so many large fishing companies. These laws need to be taken more seriously and need to be highly enforced.
Factory farming is not a good thing because the animals suffer, the animals are treated with antibiotics, and factory farming affects the environment. The animals suffer because of the living conditions that they are in. The animals are treated with antibiotics that they don’t even need. The environment gets polluted with all of the manure. People should go and buy meat from the local meat market because those animals do not go through all the cruelty that they go through in factory
As the animal rights movement nobly fights to improve the conditions of these living creatures, daily human activities and the moral values of some prolong the acceptance of animal equality. Although people irrefutably need sustenance to survive, humans have developed an unbalanced reliance on creatures like cows and chickens as their main food source. “In the United States, about 35 million cows, 115 million pigs, and 9 trillion birds are killed for food each year” (Vegetarianism). This constant demand for meat illustrates the endless cycle of breeding animals and then slaughtering them. However, many first-world countries hold a surplus of provisions that supplies more than enough to feed their people, making the use of livestock pointless.
As humans expand they are producing more waste and need a place for it to go. In some countries, people just pump the waste into the water, as a result it is harming the manatees. The waste that humans are pumping into the ocean is causing toxic algae which the manatee eats and it makes the sick or could kill them. The waste from humans hurts the manatee also by
