When the Act was passed, the meat packaging industry had to succumb to continuous inspections and investigations by the Agricultural Department which would be paid for by the meat packaging industry. Furthermore, the Act would require stamps on meat products that were sent to market for public consumption. There have been many amendments created to correspond with enhancements in the meat industry. The Federal Meat Inspection Act was established to warrant the health of American consumers. It abolished any diseased or contaminated meat before the consumer gets it.
He exploits the animals on Animal Farm by using erroneous information and abusing their emotions as techniques to sway them. Squealers persuasive speaking skills are first presented when the other animals find out that only the pigs were to receive the apples & milk. He clarifies this by insisting that the apples & milk are “absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig” (Orwell 32). He creates the illusion that the pigs aren’t receiving the milk & apples as a luxury, but instead as a type of medicine: “Comrades, You do not imagine... that we pigs are doing this in selfishness and privilege?” (Orwell 32). He continues by saying “We pigs are brain workers, the organization of the farm totally depends on us” (Orwell 42).
It is only the ownership of the farm that has changed hands, the situation remains the same for the other animals, if not worse. This demonstrates how the circle continues and also puts emphasis on George’s use of allegory. As the book progresses, the animals (pigs) become from being nothing like humans to being more and more like humans till there is absolutely no difference between them at all. In this section of the book, Old Major has a dream which he presents to the other animals in the farm. His dream presents the idea of utopia where he encourages the animals to rebel against Mr Jones as supposedly by doing so the animals will lead a better life and in
Final Copy I have recently thought about diseases in meat. I also watched a movie called Food Inc. and it talked about the food industry. It persuaded me to change the food industry because corn is fed to cows to make them fat in a fast and cheap way, each burger contains about a hundred pieces from different cows, and getting sued for criticizing specific meat companies. The food industry needs to be changed one step at a time. First of all, corn is fed to cows to make them fat in a quick and cheap way.
Henry Gonzalez Professor Moore ENC 1102 16 February 2014 Food INC. Summary Food INC. goes behind the farmhouses and shows us how the livestocks are being treated and fed. It also talks about how some of the big meat packaging companies manipulate the farmers, by making them ask the banks for loans to make their farmhouses bigger, so they can produce more for them and if the farmers don’t agree with what they want than their contracts are terminated and they are left with a debt to the bank. Many of these companies like Tyson and Smithfield ask the farmers to feed the cows and pigs corn, because it help accelerate the process killing these animals. Feeding them corn, makes them get fatter and juicer, but not in a healthy way, many of these
Although Sinclair’s investigation tells a story of the toll the meatpacking industry took on families nearly a hundred years ago, he still offers insight into the deceiving side of America’s food corruptions. Both writers brilliantly offer realization and awareness in their books that will benefit anyone who reads them to make better decisions daily. The description of the factory farming slaughterhouses in both books is enough to send chills down almost anyone’s spine; The Jungle opens with the cruel tactics, yet Fast Food Nation did not mention the slaughterhouses until midway. As Jurgis and his family tour the packinghouse where he will be working as a shoveler,(shoveling blood and guts) they first see what seems to be millions of cows. There are rail yards that carry the cattle to the slaughterhouse where the mechanics of the process are awe-inspiring.
Conventionally raised cattle have long been fed fats and proteins along with grass and grains; it helps them gain weight more quickly. Unfortunately, much of the fat and protein they’ve been fed in more recent times comes from other animals. This to me is a huge ethical issue; we have gone from letting our cattle naturally eat grass, which they have always done, to changing their diets to something completely different. The FDA still permits cattle to eat feed containing byproducts of pigs, fish, chicken, and horses, among other animals, to promote weight gain. This weight gain is not necessary, it is just desired because cattle can be slaughtered at a younger age and more meat can be produced.
eating, wearing, experimenting) animals. It is the animal cruelty involved in manufacturing animals that generates a moral concern. The farming industry in particular, carries the burden of feeding a massive population, forcing the industry to maximize farming productivity to fulfill consumer demand through the use of large-scale industrial farming techniques. In order for farming industries to gain any-sort of profit corners are cut to produce remunerative earnings. For years the industry has made efforts to convert their manufacturing process of converting animals to food from the public.
The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die. Recently in 2011, Sparboe Farms, located in states of Iowa, Minnesota, and Colorado, had an MFA undercover investigator expose appalling cruelty at the fast-food giant's major egg supplier. Ask yourself, “What is really in a McDonald's Egg McMuffin?” Hidden-camera footage shot at Sparboe Farms, the fifth-largest egg producer in the country and a significant egg supplier to major companies like McDonald's, Target, Sam's Club, and other smaller companies, revealing hens
In the novel, Animal Farm, George Orwell rewrote the statement from the Declaration of Independence. Some think and politicians say that we’ve finally gotten past the rich and poor divide. And most will say that segregation of race is completely over, but is it? Equality is a very noble concept, but we all aren’t equal no matter which document says so. The pigs in Animal Farm believed that they were more equal, or better, than all the rest of the animals on the farm.
