#1 point, cruelty Well, first of all, About 500 million land animals now in the Thailand are raised for dairy, meat and eggs each year and they all got killed in more than 400 slaughterhouses from the factory farming that are exist around the country. However, the cruelty towards these animals is unbelievable. On today's factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt lots, and other cruel confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural and important to them. In some cases, they live without daylight.
Mad Cow Disease was first recognized as an infectious disease in 1986 after it began to appear in cattle in Great Britain in 1985. It was made clear that the animals became infected because of eating pieces of cow and sheep in their bone meal (food). The British government outlawed the feeding of bone meal in order to halt the spread of the disease. It is normal and healthy for cattle to be fed soybean meal as a part of their diet. In England, soybeans don’t grow well, so British farmers fed their cattle an
Family Farms P1 American Family Farms: Going Extinct April 19, 2011 Family Farms P2 American Family Farms: Going Extinct In early America, farming was the backbone of economic prosperity. During the times of the 13 colonies, different areas of the country had different strengths and weakness in their crops. Farmers in New England colonies had the hardest time producing crops. Their soil wasn’t good enough to grow consistently good crops and the long hard winters often killed their crops. Farmers in middle colonies prospered the most of all colonies.
The King tried implementing several policies to increase the food supply, such as price controls on livestock and restrictions on the production of ales and other products made from the limited supply of grain. None of these policies worked, because there simply was just not enough food (32). People hoped the harvest of 1315 would be the end of it, but heavy rainfall in 1316 continued the hunger. The shortage of food became so severe that paupers were forced to eat dead bodies of cattle to survive. People from Northern France are rumored to
The section I am reviewing does a great job of telling how a local farmer kills his chickens and the pressure he gets from the federal government on how he is not really following their guidelines. It lets you know that animals are still slaughtered, but it also tells you that they are well fed and allowed to grow naturally before they met their end. With all of this in mind the whole process is seem to be more of the practice of old when we all bought our meat from a local farmer and it was done with someone you knew and trusted. It reminds you that the majority of our food is big business and they are creating animals instead of growing animals for our consumption. The most important part to me is that you are eating a more healthy chicken or animal since it was grass fed and allow to grow in its’ season and not before its’ time.
Jessica Hall ENG 140 6/19/2012 Week 7 Assignment “Meat and Milk Factories” by Peter Singer and Jim Mason In the essay “Meat and Milk Factories,” Peter Singer and Jim Mason discuss the cruel treatment of animals, which is inflicted to them by their caretakers. Although several farmers simply refused to talk to Singer and Mason, a select few invited the duo to their farms. Singer and Mason visited these particular “ranches,” which were located throughout the United States, and collected information on the issues from each of them. The effects of their tours were atrocious. There are many instances throughout the essay when they detail the poor treatment of pigs and cows in the US.
The documentary Food Inc. touches on these topics and shows how little consumers know about what they eat and where it derives from. The documentary Food Inc. shows how most people are under the fallacious belief that their foods are grown on appealing farms often depicted on the packaging of the product themselves. In reality only a few of these farms are present and large factory farms have replaced most of them (Food Inc.). Food Inc. displays how viciously animals are being treated from their living conditions and at slaughterhouses. The documentary also shows how animals are given antibiotics to make them grow much more rapidly.

They are born and only given enough food to keep them alive, the capable animals are worked to the bone, and once useless they are slaughtered with hideous cruelty. ‘’No animal in England knows the meaning of happiness or leisure after he is a year old.’’ Old Major wants this misery and slavery to stop and for the animals to live freely. As the land was not ‘poor’, it was fertile and the climate was good, they were capable of affording an abundance of food to support a large amount of animals. They could live in comfort but yet they continued in miserable conditions, with their produce being stolen by man. ‘’Remove man from the scene, and the root cause of hunger and overwork is abolished for ever.’’ He says that they could become rich and free overnight.
This maybe the principle that justifies the people of these two cultures to raid other villages for cattle. For as far back as the people of the Nandi culture remember the life and economy of the Nandi people has always revolved around cattle. Livestock continues to be of important value in the modern economy. Milk, fresh or preserved, is part of their every day diet. As I mentioned before, Nandi were pastoralists.
