Animals do not get to alive normal life, even for the short life that they do live, they are pumped with enhancers and drugs that make them a better product. They are forced into unsuitable conditions all just because the corporations want to spend the least bit of money possible and make the most possible. This is a normal business tatic but these are not non living products.
