Farm 1 is classified as a CAFO
operation as each flock is comprised of 180,000 broilers.
Now, the CAFO
industry wants Congress to permanently exempt it from the Superfund liability and oversight.
A major concern for local communities is the impact of nearby CAFOs
on surrounding residents.
Instead, it and two sister stations in Twin Falls owned by Clear Channel Communications found themselves running hard-hitting ads denouncing CAFOs
(concentrated animal feeding operations).
Like sewage, CAFO
pollution is extremely high in nitrogen, and most of that nitrogen comes from the artificial fertilizer used to grow the animal feed.
Even though grass-finished beef is much leaner than CAFO
beef, my ribs were moist and full of flavor; almost difficult to stop eating.
New York State has more than 500 CAFO
farms, most of which are dairy farms with 300 or more cows.
15) Drug-resistant bacteria can also travel through the air, moving from a CAFO
to nearby communities, motor vehicles, and individuals.
It's immoral to invoke God's blessings on a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO
) because neither the CAFO
nor the ideological system behind the CAFO
honors the godly essence of the pigs, cows, chickens, and people affected.
74) Neighboring landowners objected to the CAFO
that Bohr Farms operated due to the odors and hazardous substances that came onto their land from the CAFO
confinement systems in the United States typically consist of large numbers of farm animals in small spaces, subsequently creating serious and life-threatening diseases for animals due to the exposure of toxins in their waste.
meat and animal products had to be labeled (a proposition I support wholeheartedly), the entire factory-farm industry would collapse.
