From the department of “It’s About Time:” Finally, a federal bill that has the potential to end the factory farming nightmare.
According to a recent poll, at least half of U.S. consumers oppose industrial factory farming. Now some federal legislators (and some presidential candidates) are catching up with voter sentiment.
And some are even stepping up with proposals to either severely restrict, or outright ban what Big Ag refers to as CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations).
The latest good news? A bill, introduced by Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), that could, among other things, lead to the end of industrial factory farms.
We don’t need factory farms to “feed the world.” Really, we don’t. Nor do we need them to “keep the economy going.” In fact, according to this new study, factory farming is actually bad for the economy.
