How bad US factory farms are

Food & Water Watch welcomed farmers from France, Spain, and Germany this week to take a look at the deplorable environmental consequences of dairy factory farms in Michigan, Oregon and Washington. According to Wenonah Hauter, Food & Water Watch Executive Director, “European farmers touring U.S. factory dairies and communities will take home a snapshot of what European agriculture could become if farmers and their governments aren’t careful.”

Pollution, health problems and animal cruelty are all linked to the way factory farms are run. Lynn Henning, Sierra Club CAFO Water Sentinel and a leader of the Environmentally Concerned Citizens of South Central Michigan, believes that “showing just how bad it is in Lenawee and Hillsdale Counties is one way to advocate for stronger laws here as well as to make sure Europeans don’t weaken their laws to allow these horrible facilities to move into their communities.”

Factory farms are one of the clearest examples of how we can harm our health, God’s animals and the environment. Being good stewards of the Earth requires love and compassion for everything God created. Factory farms involve immense cruelty and disregard for God’s creation.
