An incredibly important investigative essay in the New York Times by Michael Moss called "U.S. Research Lab Lets Livestock Suffer in Quest for Profit" shows clearly and in most disturbing detail that "food animals" -- including cows, lambs, and pigs -- at Nebraska's tax-payer financed U.S. Meat Animal Research Center are brutally harmed and killed -- some left to die on their own or killed by predators -- in their reprehensible quest for profit.
If you're a doubter and think this is some "radical hype," Mr. Moss's outstanding essay will show you that research on "food animals," and eating factory farmed animals whose well-being is thoroughly ignored to make them bigger and to have them make more babies, should be stopped right now.
I read a lot about animal abuse, but this essay made me ill, and I just want to highlight some of its contents and let you decide how much you want to read and can tolerate. A number of people told me they couldn't make it to the end of the essay absent tears.
Pigs are having many more piglets — up to 14, instead of the usual eight — but hundreds of those newborns, too frail or crowded to move, are being crushed each year when their mothers roll over. Cows, which normally bear one calf at a time, have been retooled to have twins and triplets, which often emerge weakened or deformed, dying in such numbers that even meat producers have been repulsed.
