The Truth About the Meat Industry
The meat industry is always striving to maximize profits by minimizing costs and always at the expense of the animals. Most production farms do this by squeezing as many animals as possible into tiny spaces. Thousands of animals spend their entire lives crammed into dark, windowless, waste-filled sheds. Some will be stuffed into wire cages or metal crates so small they cannot turn around. Not exactly the spacious pastures that are shown in advertisements and packaging for meat products. These animals will never root around in the soil, build nests, or most importantly raise their families. Most will never breathe fresh air, or feel the warmth of the sun until the day they’re loaded onto trucks headed for slaughterhouses. Farmed animals are subjected to painful mutilations like dehorning, debeaking, tail docking, branding and castration. They are bred to grow unnaturally fast and large for the purpose of maximizing production for profits. Their bodies develop debilitating deformities and painful conditions as a result of this rapid growth.
