Summary

Most of the meat consumed comes from animals raised on factory farms. These huge industrialized enterprises have played a major role in making beef, chicken, and pork cheaper, increasingly standardized, and more widely and dependably available in markets around the world. As businesses that efficiently produce animal protein on a massive scale, they have been extraordinary successful. But as David Brubaker shows in this startling survey of the industry, some of the practices that make farm factories successful are, to say the least, worrisome.
