    IMO, factory farming is one of our greatest shames as humans.  The treatment of farm animals is a total disgrace.  The spoilation of the environment is unreal.

    Put in terms of the commercial:

    And God made assholes whose livelihood is dependent on cruelty to his own creations.

    Fuck factory farming.

      You are pathetic.  Have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night to help birth one of your 100 cows?  Or worried about how they were faring on a very cold winter night?  Or fussed over your daughter's 4-H cow that was having milk fever?
      Fuck factory farming?  Fuck you!
      I've worked all my life to assure that my cows were well fed and comfortable.  Why?  Because only healthy, well fed, comfortable cows will give any chance for this 'asshole' to make a living and provide you with cheap food for your pie hole.

        I don't think you get it. If you are making sure your cows are well fed and comfortable, you aren't running a factory farm.

        •  I do get it (0+ / 0-)

          My point is that whether I run a 100 cow farm or a 5000 cow farm I cannot make a profit unless my cows are well fed, healthy, and comfortable.  Most people that decry "factory farm" have no idea about what they are complaining.  Please define factory farm.  Farming practices are always changing and always will to fit the economics of the current agriculture but no adopted practice can be used that harms the animals.  Unhealthy, stressed animals don't produce!

            Nonsense.

            I'm not going to go digging for the easily available endless documentation I could link that would prove you're utterly full of crap, because honestly I've seen it already and it bothers me to look at.

            Assuming I'm wrong and you're not either a troll or willfully ignorant, take a few seconds and look into how chickens are treated in factory farms. To pretend 'no adopted practice can be used that harms the animals' is one of the most transparently false, idiotic claims I have yet to see on the comments section on this site, and that's no easy feat.

              I ask someone to define 'factory farm', and thus far I learn it is farms where they are constantly being cruel to their animals; apparently that is the view of those who farm from the the comfort of their homes and narrow point of view.

                so you can take your bullshit and stuff it right up your ass.  We farm oranges, almonds and olives.  So fuck off....seriously.

                I have not eaten meat (chicken and fish included) for over 20 years, so I put my money where my mouth is.  Diary and cattle farming are a fucking scourge, you will never convince me otherwise.  In addition, they fuck up the land and each pound of meat takes thousands of gallons of water to produce.  Is that sustainable?  

                Your a total piece of shit vmdairy.  I don't need to explain myself to you in this, or any other lifetime.

              vmdairy is a fucking awipe troll and he is conflating his "sweet and cute" little dairy farm with the farms that run like cowschwitz.  

              But fuck him, becuase he has the nerve to say if you aren't  farming (which I am) you can't comment on the habits of farmers.  Total bullshit.
