Factory farms are also known as Concentrated
Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) Confined Animal
Feeding Operation (CAFO) Conventional Farming
Industrial Agricultural Operation Industrial
Livestock Operation (ILO) Factory Farming is also
referred to as Industrial Agriculture Production.
Factory Farming in the Developing World

What is Factory Farming?
  • The mass production of livestock, with the goal
    of producing as much meat as possible, as quickly
    as possible.
  • Most people harbor the incorrect idea that the
    meat that they eat comes from happy livestock on
    Ol Macdonald's farm (where the cows go moo!).
    However, this is rarely the case.

The reality of Farming
5
Traditional v.s. Conventional Farming
  • Traditional Farming
  • Livestock aid with labor, produce milk, and
    supply transportation. Farmers produce a variety
    of foods (from meats to veggies and fruits) and
    do so sustainably.
  • Conventional farming
  • Monocrops of meat, which are environmentally and
    socially destructive (one conventional farm can
    replace 10 traditional farms).

6
Traditional (family) Farming
  • Family farms are better for the humane treatment
    of livestock, the responsible disposal or reuse
    of wastes, and the overall quality and health of
    the meat.
  • Family farms allow their livestock to graze and
    socialize, and are efficient in their allocation
    of resources.

7
Conventional Farming
  • More than one third of all grain produced
    world-wide is fed to factory farm livestock.
  • The developing world is beginning to take up
    factory farming because of the economic boost
    that it supposedly offers (if the cost of
    environmental reparations is not included).
  • Conventional farms treat their livestock
    inhumanely, solely as a form of economic wealth,
    resulting in a meat of poorer quality and health.
    Inefficiency and the contamination of the
    environment come hand-in-hand with Factory
    Farming.

8
Health and Environmental Implications
  • Increased incidence of food borne diseases,
    species hopping illnesses.
  • Antibiotic-resistant bacteria (POSSIBLE PANDEMIC
    RESULTING IN DIRECT HUMAN DEATHS ALONG WITH FOOD
    SHORTAGES)
  • Contamination of ground water.
  • The use of rBGH and the Genetic Engineering of
    feed (whats next, the animals?)
  • Diseases of affluence that stem from meat
    consumption.
  • And a plethora of other environmental and health
    issues.

  • Psst...
  • J-MONEY wanted to share the secret of The Meatrix
    with you.It's the new online animation that
    millions of people around the world have watched.
  • J-MONEY also said Factory Farming Sucks

Discussion Qs
  • Considering the amount of water the goes into
    growing grain for livestock feed, the other
    resources consumed, and not to mention the waste
    produced, is FF efficient?
  • Should the US take a leading role in returning to
    traditional farming?
  • What can be done for developing countries, to
    boost their economies and to keep the globalizing
    market from forcing them into mass production
    (international law reform)?
