Here are some images obtained from the website, SustainableMeatIndustry.org:
Cows crammed in together in a feedlot.
These feedlots are where the cattle are often sent to before slaughter, even if they lived on a “humane” farm prior. The feedlots are densely populated and produce massive amounts of waste. The cows are generally fed corn and/or soy, which is not a natural food source for them. The result is environmental damage, human health risks, and animal abuse. Read more here, here, and here.
The website link says:
“Fed cattle” are raised on pasture land for 12-18 months and transported to a feedlot for finishing, where they spend four to six months. (source)
Then they’re slaughtered.
Another image, this one is from the banner on the front page:
Pigs in confinement.
Oh, and the website, “Sustainable Meat Industry,” also offers some helpful links… to McDonald’s and Wal-Mart. Gee… I wonder who paid for the website.
