What do you think factory farming is? Do you think it’s inhumane? Factory farming is how we get our food, there are cows, chickens, pigs, turkeys, etc. The farmers inject the animals with antibiotics to make them grow bigger. The animals grow so big they can’t hold their weight, the females have to get pregnant so the farmers can make more money for the animals, they get locked up in cages and do not have fresh air or sunlight.
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
However, no one really does. Some have sympathy or consider the fact and some just do not care. We treat animals as though we are superior. Going around killing and taking whatever we want and even on to what we do not need. Factory farming is cruel and inhumane and it needs to stop.
It matters how animals are treated before being slaughtered; they are living things with conscience and pain receptors. Animals experience fear, shock, stress and despair; they deserve a dignified death (Foer, 2009). Factory farming impacts on the environment and affects all humans. It is an earthly problem, and affects every life on earth. It can be argued that water, air and land pollution only affect a group of people, but it affects all humans using these natural resources (Foer, 2009).

Factory Farming is damaging to the animals, our bodies, and the environment.
Animals used in industry to be raised for milk, meat, wool, leather and eggs. People should stop factory farming and should start farming and raising animals like they did in 20th century. Factory farming is a factory which raises animals
Statements such as "why worry about animals when so many people die from malaria, violence and war?" are not quite right. Although in his book, the author mostly worried about the suffering of animals, which in itself is a controversial point, it also affects a very important for mankind issue - a farm on which the animals have been growing. In unsanitary conditions many diseases can be developed, sequentially these conditions on the farms increase the likelihood of unintended human health consequences. The problem of global warming, which is also contributed by factory farming affects already now all people, despite the fact you eat meat or not.
A factory farm can be better understood if you think of it as a family farm on steroids. They are all over the world injecting your food with chemicals and abusing animals. Nothing is done with the customer in mind; things are only done to generate an income. Profit is their main priority and your –and the animals, well being is left on the back burner. Theses types of farms keep the truth from the public, which is that animals are treated poorly, diseases spread like wildfire and animals are injected with
There are markets available that have accessories for cows, chickens etc. Animals have a right to kind treatment and equal rights. There are other ways to give animals respect, factory farming is not the only solution to produce a large amount of meat.
