If you buy meat or dairy from supermarkets, this is what you're supporting. This is abuse, of the most grotesque kind. And virtually all factory farms engage in it. In this country, 98% of meat, poultry, and dairy products come from factory farms. You cannot claim to be an animal lover -- or simply a humane person -- if you support this. Buying meat, poultry, and dairy products from anyplace other than a small, humane farm where you know the animals aren't abused means you're supporting this. It's that simple.
