The Passion of Grass Run Farms vs mega corporate feed lots, factory farms

The Passion of Grass Run Farms vs mega corporate feed lots, factory farms | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

In recent years, the facts of industrial meat production have been laid bare through books, films, television and articles. Exposure of gargantuan feedlots, cramped conditions, the spread of disease, and overuse of antibiotics have all contributed to an increasing demand for humanely and cleanly raised beef and pork products.

 

Ryan and Kristine Jepsen have not only made a business through their Grass Run Farms—they have taken on the mission of setting an example for other producers to find a sustainable alternative.... http://organicconnectmag.com/wp/the-passion-of-grass-run-farms/#.URFa0ujZ03Y

Scientific Paper Argues Against Factory Farms "Feeding the World"

Scientific Paper Argues Against Factory Farms "Feeding the World" | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

19 Jan 2013 NATURAL SOCIETY To "feed the world" by 2050, we need massive industrial-scale, corporate-led agriculture. Well, that's what some say, but it couldn't be more untrue....

A group of researchers led by a distinguished soil expert has published a paper urging the US to rethink its current alliance with Big Ag. In its condensed form in the magazine Science (you can find the extended version hereas published by the National Research Council) , lead author John P. Reganold from Washington State University claims that the US’s current ag-research policy is flawed and not the vehicle needed to feed the world

Corporate Industrial Factory Farming Treats Our Animals Like Objects on an Auto Production Line: You Are What You Eat

Corporate Industrial Factory Farming Treats Our Animals Like Objects on an Auto Production Line: You Are What You Eat | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it
Many a person has given up meat on learning about the cruelties of factory farming. Turns out it's not required...or enough.


There is something terribly wrong with the industrial agriculture system that produces almost all of our country's eggs, dairy and meat. By wrong, I mean unethical, and I am not talking about the killing part at the end of the process, but everything that precedes it. I am talking about the way farm animals are treated for the whole of their lives.

It goes by the name of factory farming because it deals with animals as just so many inanimate parts on an assembly line. The treatment involves great cruelty of a kind we outlaw for animals in pet shops and zoos. Only livestock is allowed this kind of abuse.... http://www.nrdc.org/thisgreenlife/1111.asp

Healthy chicken is available, just not always in your supermarket.

Think the pink slime scandal is gross? There's even more unappetizing news, this time from the poultry department. By testing feathers, researchers from Johns Hopkins University found that "healthy chicken" sold in your supermarket could have very well been raised on a steady diet of prescription, over-the-counter, and even banned drugs.

 

The contaminated chicken report is the latest in a string of findings suggesting the industrial food system that supplies most supermarkets routinely engages in practices that could put consumers at risk.

                             A RIVER OF WASTE - Documentary -

Exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production.

This documentary looks at the potential hazards caused by factory farms in the United States, particularly by waste disposal. Beginning with a history of the American food system, River of Waste shows its evolution to large-scale corporate farms where pollution and use of growth hormones threaten both individual health and the future of our planet....http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/river-waste/

Knitting together federal energy, farm and environmental policies, the film makes a compelling case for the revamping of US agricultural policy.  Through beautiful photography and inspiring narrative, the film puts deliberate emphasis on solutions and provides a hopeful blueprint for progress and positive change... http://www.rememberthispoint.com/?p=212

  - ▶  65 BILLION CONFINED FARM ANIMALS - CAFOs (Confined Animal Feed Operations). Today, nearly 65 BILLION animals worldwide, including cows, chickens and pigs, are crammed into CAFOs (Confined Animal Feed Lots). These animals are literally imprisoned and tortured in unhealthy, unsanitary and unconscionably cruel conditions. Sickness is the norm for animals who are confined rather than pastured, and who eat GMO corn and soybeans, rather than grass and forage as nature intended. To prevent the inevitable spread of disease from stress, overcrowding and lack of vitamin D, animals are fed a steady diet of antibiotics. Those antibiotics pose a direct threat to the environment when they run off into our lakes, rivers, aquifers and drinking water.

   The vast majority of consumers don’t realize that nearly 95% of the meat, dairy and eggs sold in the U.S. come from CAFOs. Nor do most people realize that CAFOs represent a corporate-controlled system characterized by large-scale, centralized, low profit-margin production, processing and distribution systems....Ronnie Cummins via Common Dreams, http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/01/17-5

Grant Graves's curator insight, October 24, 5:27 PM

The meat industry has an unearthly amount of animals at their mercy that are unnecessarily slaughtered year after year in a seemingly endless cycle of death and cruelty. Factory farming is an unethical and confining practice often covered up by the U.S. government 's "Ag Gag" laws that allow companies to bypass laws that would commonly carry large fines and even prison time, if caught. Instead, animal rights activists are often charged with "crimes" for reporting animal abuses. This was such a case in Amy Meyer's arrest. Meyer was arrested for taking photographs , while standing on public property, of cows being hit and abused on a nearby slaughterhouse in Utah. Such cases show how the U.S. government allows unaccounted wrongdoings. In all, due to the negligence of government officials on this issue, it is up to the citizens of the U.S. to stand up for those without a voice.

pdjmoo's insight:

Time we all got off the wheel of blind consumerism and got back to sensible farming and eating.... and stop trying to manipulate nature and our animals for even more and more profit ... do you like eating corporate food, or even know what's in it? how it was produced or where?  Have you any idea of the devastation it is doing to our ecosystems and environment that every living species depends upon for survival?  And What about your health?  Wake-up World Your Life Depends Upon It

Critics say the new salmon is a "dangerous experiment" considered as a new "animal drug application"not food, and have pressured the FDA to reject it. They say the FDA has relied on outdated science and substandard methods for assessing the new fish. "We are deeply concerned that the potential of these fish to cause allergic reactions has not been adequately researched," said Michael Hansen, a scientist at the Consumers Union.

Beth Dembinski's curator insight, November 25, 9:20 PM

summary:

this video is about how our choices can stop world hunger, save resources, stop pollution, improve health and make a kinder world.

 

farm animals contribute more climate change than the planes, trains and cars of the world, getting rid of the factory farms and things like that would help reduce this. raising animals for food is one of the largest contributors to green house gastinations which is terrible. animal agriculture has taken up a lot of water, land, energy and crops which leaves the world less. habitats are being taken down all over the world so they could grow crops for animals which are mostly in animal farms so all the other animals are being forced to migrate somewhere else. the animals are fed about 6 kg of protein to produce 1 kg of animal protein. the factory farms are using more food than they produce which is leaving less food for everyone else, some people are starved. at a time when globally one million people are suffering from malnutrition, one third of the worlds edible harvest is being fed to farm animals which are mainly in big factory farms. Lots of people agree that by eating less meat we can help stop pollution, world hunger, save resources, and make a kinder world. health experts even agree, that by eating less meat it will help stop the risk of obesity, heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer. This whole video is saying that the choices we make, can change somebody else's world. By not eating meat, you can help not only yourself, but other living things. just by one simple act, you can change everything.

A recent lawsuit accused the pork industry of using industry marketing or "checkoff" funds to keep pigs in factory farms.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) announced a lawsuit against the USDA over what it alleges was an illegal transfer of $60 million in marketing and promotion money to a political lobbying organization. It’s illegal because the marketing money, so-called “checkoff” funds, cannot by law be used for political lobbying.,,, http://grist.org/food/the-other-white-meat/

This documentary looks at the potential hazards caused by factory farms in the United States, particularly by waste disposal. Beginning with a history of the American food system, River of Waste shows its evolution to large-scale corporate farms where pollution and use of growth hormones threaten both individual health and the future of our planet....http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/river-waste/

- ▶  SCIENTIST FRUSTRATED BY MASSIVE FACTORY FARM WASTE, THREATENING BOTH HUMAN AND ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH: Despite a growing body of evidence that shows the environmental and health consequences of intensive livestock operations, Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) continue to pop up on the landscape.
   In Kewaunee County, where cows outnumber humans by more than three to one, and where the porous karst topography cannot possibly support the massive amounts of animal waste that the industrial farms produce, citizens have been fighting an uphill battle to have their concerns heard. 

Professor Lawrence said.

During the past 50 years, animal agriculture has gone through a seismic shift in the United States.  Family farms and red barns have been replaced by industrialized facilities controlled by large corporations that rely on concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). In this system, cavernous warehouses crowded with thousands—even tens of thousands—of animals form the equivalent of an agricultural assembly line.

Much of the pollution in U.S. rivers and streams today comes from the manure generated by CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations), which confine thousands of animals on a single site. To determine the extent of the problem and how it might be better addressed, the public and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) need to know more about these facilities and the waste they produce.
