Factory Farming is inhumane and the benefits don't outweigh the inhumanity.
Debate Rounds (3)
The cost of food is drastically reduced with the use of factory farms. This is because the food is produced and processed at a much faster rate, with more efficient processes involved.
2. Very Lucrative
The profit margin for these factory farms is large, this is because the proper care of animals is looked over, which is where much of farming costs lay. The areas in which these farms are located also provide them with cheap labor.
3. Lots of Job Opportunities
Factory farms are huge operations, that need a huge number of employees to ensure they run correctly. They offer a wide variety of job opportunities and economic stimulation to areas of the world that are in desperate need of this type of help.
Obviously humans are smarter than these animals but the size of their brains has nothing to do with this. They still have bones, blood running through their veins, nerves throughout their bodies and the ability to feel pain. It is not their fault that people don"t have the money for quality food. Once again, the consumers of this meat aren"t doing themselves any good either even if it gives them a meal that day. Eating this meat puts people at risk of antibiotic resistant bacteria, exposure to arsenic that can cause cancer, and onto a path leading to obesity and heart disease since the "protein" one may believe they are getting from their beef and chicken is mostly saturated fat. For those who can't afford food, there are still cheap food options out there that are harmless to make. It is obvious that these large factory-farming corporations could care less about these animals along with the well being of their consumers. Sure, they are saving you some money, but this cheaper production is still inhumane and does not outweigh all of the harm being done to not only the animals, but to you too.
