cowFarm Animals include a broad range of livestock, birds and fish and our campaigns are designed to prevent the inhumane rearing, transport and slaughter of farm animals; and publicize the linkages between intensive rearing  factory operations and environmental pollution (such as the Walkerton disaster) and predator control.  Realistically, the slaughter of animals for food will continue and in the interim we need to remind consumers that just because an animal is destined for human consumption does not mean the animal should not receive humane treatment.  We also encourage people to consider reducing the amount of meat in their diet to use up fewer resources, and to promote greater public health and animal welfare reforms.
