Making Nature Fit Industry

• Industrial breeds grown with artificial reproduction methods
• Physical alterations so animals can’t hurt each other (and sacrifice profits)
• Industrial feed rations and antibiotics (even when not necessary) to maximize growth
• Low-wage laborers and contract growers rather than independent family farmers
• Overwhelming concentration of animals and waste
• Denial of natural social relationships or typical behavior
• Downer animals seen merely as replaceable production units
• Relentless pace of death, which degrades the physical and mental well-being of workers
