Down on the farm …. “What we don’t see”!!


~~May 24, 2015~~ 


On today’s factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt lots, and other cruel confinement systems.

These animals will never raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural and important to them. Most won’t even feel the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter. The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories.

The factory farming industry strives to maximize output while minimizing costs — always at the animals’ expense. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die.

~~Down on the Farm~~


~~Published on May 22, 2015~~

Wait until you see what today’s farms ACTUALLY look like.

Modern farms are factories intent on maximizing their output without any regard for the welfare of the cows, chickens, pigs, and other animals used for food.

Animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and stuffed into wire cages, metal crates, and other torturous devices.

Most of them won’t even breathe fresh air until the day they’re loaded onto trucks headed for slaughterhouses.

When they’ve grown large enough to slaughter or their bodies are worn out from producing milk or eggs, animals raised for food are crowded onto trucks and transported for miles through all weather extremes, typically without food or water.

At the slaughterhouse, those who survived the transport will have their throats slit, often while they’re still conscious.

Many remain conscious when they’re plunged into the scalding-hot water of the defeathering or hair-removal tanks or while their bodies are being skinned or hacked apart.

Does this sound terrible?

Thoughts for today …. #62!!

~~November 30, 2014~~

Organic food was the only option for thousands of years. Now, with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and genetically-modified foods, organic is still the best option.

Genetically-modified foods were unleashed on the environment and the public by corporations like Monsanto without prior testing to determine their safety. In other words, eating genetically-modified foods (which most people in in large amounts) is participating in a long-term, uncontrolled experiment. Choose organic to avoid participating in this experiment.

The Cornucopia Institute, through research and investigations on agricultural and food issues, provides needed information to family farmers, consumers and other stakeholders in the good food movement and to the media. We support economic justice for the family-scale farming community – partnered with consumers – backing ecologically produced local, organic and authentic food.

IOTD …. “Image of the Day”, #88!!

~~November 29, 2014~~

“The young, free to act on their initiative, can lead their elders in the direction of the unknown … The children, the young, must ask the questions that we would never think to ask, but enough trust must be re-established so that the elders will be permitted to work with them on the answers.”
~~Margaret Mead~~

A child named Josef sits on a stone porch outside his home in Chupon, Peru on Sept. 1, 2014. The village lies in the Peruvian Andes in the province of Ayacucho, and houses about 30 peasants who subsist on farming corn and potatoes.

A dear blogger friend taught me about this concept.

~In her own words~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Friendly reminder ….. Tonight is “fall back”!!

Fall Back: Set Your Clocks Back One Hour on Sunday for Some Reason

By: Dennis Mersereau

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 AM this Sunday, at which point most of the country will set their clocks back one hour for no real reason other than that our parents did it. We love us some ridiculous traditions.

It’s worth noting ahead of time — since some people genuinely do not know this, but we’re not judging — that the sun isn’t actually setting any earlier. There is no planetary shift occurring this Sunday. The earlier sunset is in relation to our own 24-hour cycle; most of us haven’t mastered warping space-time, yet.


Daylight Saving Time (note the lack of a second “s” in “saving”) is a wonderfully ridiculous practice in much of Western civilization in which we set our clocks forward one hour during the warmer months and set them back one hour during the winter. Depending on which version of the story you’ve read from someone who read it on Wikipedia, there are two reasons behind this twice-yearly shift.

The first is that bumping the clocks forward an hour during the spring and summer months allows farmers to work on their farms later during the growing and harvest seasons. The second version of the story, adjusted for the Modern Working Guy, says that the extra hour of daylight during the spring and summer allows people on an eight-hour office schedule to spend an extra hour outdoors when they get home.

At the end of the day …. “A very serious topic”!!

~~October 23, 2014~~ 


This is a topic that I recently started looking into. The only reason I know about it is because I started to research. I’m amazed, and not in a positive way, at the way that the human race treats the animals that are part of our world.

I must confess I eat meat. I eat mostly chicken. However, since I learned about this practice I have decreased the amount of meat I eat. I have stopped drinking cow’s milk and eating eggs. At least, that’s a start. 

“You can’t make a difference for them all but you can make a difference for one.”


Intensive animal farming or industrial livestock production, also called factory farming, is a modern form of intensive farming that refers to the keeping of livestock, such as cattle, poultry and fish at higher stocking densities than is usually the case with other forms of animal agriculture — a practice typical in industrial farming by agribusinesses.

The main products of this industry are meat, milk and eggs for human consumption. There are issues regarding whether factory farming is sustainable and ethical.


Confinement at high stocking density is one part of a systematic effort to produce the highest output at the lowest cost by relying on economies of scale, modern machinery, biotechnology, and global trade. Confinement at high stocking density requires the use of antibiotics and pesticides to mitigate the spread of disease and pestilence exacerbated by these crowded living conditions.

In addition, antibiotics are used to stimulate livestock growth by killing intestinal bacteria. There are differences in the way factory farming techniques are practiced around the world. There is a continuing debate over the benefits, risks and ethical questions of factory farming. The issues include the efficiency of food production; animal welfare; whether it is essential for feeding the growing global population; and the environmental impact (e.g. pollution) and health risks.

The practice is widespread in developed nations. According to the Worldwatch Institute, as of 2006 74 percent of the world’s poultry, 43 percent of beef, 50 percent of pork, and 68 percent of eggs were produced this way.
