Does your family eat meat from animals raised in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs)? Do you know about David Kirby’s Animal Factory?
In her comments on David Kirby’s book Animal Factory, Alice Waters says, “Nature did not intend for animals to live and die in a factory assembly line.” CAFOs confine thousands of pigs, dairy cattle, and poultry birds in small spaces, often under horrifying conditions, and generate enormous volumes of fecal and biological waste, as well as other toxins. In Animal Factory, Mr. Kirby lays out the savage details for you with the end goal of restoring sustainable farming practices while saving our limited resources. Mr. Kirby’s book is essential reading. Browse through the health links on my home page. There you’ll find a resource menu that will allow your family to eat beyond the reach of CAFOs.
