Factory Farming is a comprehensive survey of the implications of modern livestock farming for food quality and safety, for the animals themselves and the environment as a whole. As well as covering the more familiar issues of battery egg production and the use of hormone growth promoters, the author discusses the rapid rise of fish farming, the capabilities of genetic engineering and the hidden environmental costs of high-tech livestock production systems.
