Most animals farmed for food in this country are reared inside filthy, crowded factory farms where they are denied everything that makes life worth living.
They are reared in this way so that farmers can produce meat, eggs and dairy products as quickly and cheaply as possible.
To keep the production costs down, the animals are confined in small spaces indoors. They are denied fresh air, proper exercise and the freedom to behave naturally.
Many people think that sheep and dairy cows have a better life because some of them can spend much of their time outside in the fields. The truth is that they too are exploited to produce food as cheaply as possible.
All farmed animals, whether reared on a factory farm or a free-range farm, die a violent death at the slaughterhouse when they are still very young.
