Livestock

  • Chickens:    Multiple groups in the United States,  raise and slaughter ten times the amount of birds rather than other animals. Every year, approximately nine billion chickens are murdered for their meat,  while another three-hundred million chickens are used for egg production. All birds, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, etc., are not included in all federal animal protection laws. 
  • Cows, cattle, and bulls:  When cows are still calves, they are branded, in the process of being burned by hot irons,  their horns are cut or burned off, and males cows have their testicles ripped out . Many cows are sent to feelots, filthy holding pens, where they are crammed in with thousands of other cows. They are fed an abnormal diet to fatten them up before slaughter. Cows are raised for food and are regularly dosed with drugs such as antibiotics to make them grow faster and keep them alive long enough to make it to the slaughterhouse. In this video, it is showing humane cruelty...        https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/6/12/18663293/fair-oaks-farms-video-animal-cow-abuse How to see video: 1. Right click, 2.

  • Pigs: The majority of sows, spend most of their lives in individual crates. These crates are about seven feet long and two feet wide—too small to even allow the smallest of adult pigs to turn around in. After giving birth to piglets, sows are moved to farrowing crates, which are wide enough for them to lie down and nurse their babies but not big enough for them to turn around or build nests for their young. Piglets are separated from their mothers when they are as young as 10 days old. Once the sows piglets are gone, the sow is impregnated again, and the cycle continues for three or four years before she is slaughtered.  After they are taken from their mothers, piglets are confined to pens and barns over the span of about six months, fed until they weigh 280 lbs or more, then they are ready to be sold as meat.  Every year in the U.S., millions of male piglets are castrated (usually without being given any painkillers) because consumers supposedly complain of “boar taint” in meat that comes from intact animals.  In extremely crowded conditions, piglets are prone to stress-related behavior such as cannibalism and tail-biting, so farmers often chop off piglets’ tails and use pliers to break off the ends of their teeth—without giving them any painkillers. For identification purposes, farmers also cut out chunks of the young animals’ ears.
  • My wishes: I wish to prevent animal abuse across the country. I doubt I can achieve that as of now, but I strive on the whole of South Carolina.
