I'm picturing rows upon rows of Production RIR's in a factory being force fed carrots and cracked corn. Poor things!
That's like when they try to force the all real meat dog food on us. First thing a wild animal eats is the guts and brains and stuff like that. We are the only animals that go first for the muscle I think. People are silly. (not that I have anything against a big juicy cheesburger) I just love how marketing and media tries to brainwash us into the newest fad. Sad part is our animals suffer for it.
my neighbor's production house is called cage free open air housing......he has a 2 foot open area that runs the length of the house....might sound good till you stop and think that the house holds 30000 chickens
The health inspector filled me in with ALOT when he was here! very interesting :(
shows how much those store labels can decieve......being a farm family, i see the production places up close, be chicken, pig, cattle...whatever....those horror stories can be very blown out of proportion, but the part of being crowded are very true...now the part that will get me hung.......I understand it.... when your livelyhood depends on using the space that you have, you need to push that space to it's limits.....also if contracted, the farm itself has little say in it, they are controlled by the big business.
