Why prop up industrial livestock systems?


“There’s no use dedicating billions of dollars to stimulate failed chemical-based farming schemes or to prop up industrial livestock systems that pollute air and water, excessively concentrate animals and animal waste, and require massive transport of crops that are never recycled back to their fields of origin. It’s time to close the loops that depend on fossil fuels, and invest in systems where natural cycles create sustainable outcomes.”

Greg Bowman, communications manager at the Rodale Institute in America, 2009.
