There’s Much Suffering on Small Farms As Well

Factory farms are barbaric to the animals and most people agree about this fact. However, small farms are not suffering-free, as the public usually believes. This article does a great job explaining why some practices at small free-range farms cause much pain in animals, too. For example, the affixing of septum rings in pigs’ noses, which causes pain and lifetime discomfort, is considered necessary so pigs don’t root (which they enjoy doing constantly) and destroy the landscape.

Please visit Pigs Suffer on Small Farms, Too.

When God’s animals are raised for food they become a commodity and their status as sentient beings and amazing creations of God is lowered. Once an animal is seen as a commodity, he/she cannot possibly be allowed to live his/her life fully, as God intended. Only when we see animals as our fellow creatures we may live in harmony with them.
