The Modern Day Animal Farm

You know Old MacDonald, his farm and all the animals? It bears little relationship to reality. Most of the meat and animal products we eat come from livestock raised in horrific conditions. I’m not the first to use the image of an assembly line to describe intensive farms, with cows going in one end and steaks coming out the other, or chickens working to produce eggs in unsustainable conditions like lots of little machines. This kind of farming is “agro-industry,” not “agriculture.”
