Must Watch Film! Farm to Fridge by Mercy for Animals (The Truth About Meat Production)

October 18, 2019


In the next few minutes you will be given an eye-opening look behind the closed doors of Modern Farms Hatcheries and slaughter plants revealing the Journey than animals make from farm to fridge For nearly their entire four-Month pregnancies mother sows are locked in narrow Metal stalls barely larger than their own bodies many of the animals develop open sores and scratches Workers often kick hit and yell at pigs to move them soon after birth piglets are castrated By workers who cut into their skin and rip out their testicles Next the workers chop off their tails both of these painful procedures are nearly always done without anesthesia many animals dialed from botched mutilations Piglets who become sick who are injured or who are not growing quickly enough are killed Common killing methods include throwing animals into bins and painfully gassing them with Carbon dioxide Others are killed by being slammed headfirst into the ground At a factory farm in Ohio workers killed injured south by hanging them on a forklift to be slowly Strangled to death a practice defended by the pork industry Pigs raised for me typically live only five to six months a mere fraction of their natural Lifespan in overcrowded pens like this Workers frequently Tattoo the animals with ID numbers by hitting them with metal spiked mallets Once pigs have reached market weight. They are sent to slaughter at the slaughterhouse pigs are knocked in the head with a steel Rod hung upside down and have their throats slit Improper stunning condemns many pigs to having their throats slit while they are fully conscious and suffering Others are even scolded alive in the hair removal tanks From the moment they hatch the egg industry subjects chicks to horrors few of us can even imagine at the hatchery Workers quickly and Roughly Sort the males from the females Because male chicks don’t lay eggs, and do not grow quickly enough to be raised profitably for meat. They are killed within hours after hatching Male chicks are typically thrown into giant grinding machines while still alive this practice is deemed Standard and acceptable by the egg industry Another killing method is to drop male chicks into trash bags to be smothered or suffocated More than 200 million unwanted male chicks are killed on their first day of life each year in the United States The females have it even worse Destined for a life of prolonged cruelty to reduce pecking induced by overcrowded living conditions Workers use a hot blade or laser to remove part of the chicks beaks this mutilation can cause both acute and chronic pain After debeaking the birds are moved to cages where they will spend the rest of their lives nearly 95% of egg-laying hens spend their lives confined in tiny wire cages like this Most Birds never see sunlight or breathe fresh air They are packed so tightly they cannot even spread their wings walk or turn around without pushing other birds aside the Harsh and Unrelenting environment of the cage takes its toll often leading to severe feather loss open wounds and birds trapped in cage while For many hens the stressful confinement is too much leading to premature death Undercover investigations at egg farms from Coast to coast have revealed a culture of cruelty and neglect including workers stomping on Birds throwing live hens on Dead piles and in trash cans and painfully mangling Birds spines in botched attempts to break their necks At one or two years of age when a hen’s egg production begins to decline she is violently ripped from her cage Workers often fling the birds into metal carts where they are painfully suffocated with Carbon dioxide Crowded by the thousands into filthy sheds Chickens and turkeys are denied many of their most basic natural behaviors and needs such as fresh air and exercise through genetic selection Chickens and turkeys raised for meat have been bred to grow so large so quickly that many suffer crippling leg disorders Chronic joint pain and even fatal heart attacks sick or injured Birds often have their necks broken Others are clubbed to death Those who live to reach market weight are thrown into transport crates and loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter plants? Handling is often violent and frequently causes bruises Broken bones and other injuries at the slaughter plant the birds are dumped from their crates, then Roughly snapped upside down into moving shackles by their fragile legs From there the birds are dragged through an electrified vat of water which renders them paralyzed, but not necessarily unconscious They are then pulled across a blade which slices their throats causing blood to pour from their necks Some of the birds who missed the blade have their throats slit or their heads ripped off by a backup killer Other birds are drowned and scolded in the tanks of hot water designed to Loosen the birds feathers cows Produce milk for the same reasons that humans do to nourish their young But calves on dairy farms are dragged away from their mothers and violently killed all so that humans can have the milk instead The majority of today’s Dairy cows are confined on Factory farms Some spend almost their [entire] lives standing on concrete floors others are crammed into massive mud lots Workers subject young cows to painful mutilations and amputations Here a worker cuts off a cow’s tail slicing through her sensitive skin nerves and bone without any painkillers Another Routine practice is dehorning burning into the calves skulls to remove their budding horns painkillers are rarely used a 2010 undercover investigation at a dairy farm in Ohio revealed a farm worker Stabbing cows with pitchforks beating them in the head with crowbars and punching baby calves injuries and illness often run rampant in filthy disease-Ridden Factory farm environments cows too sick or injured to stand are called downers and are often left to slowly suffer and die from their injuries at A Fraction of their natural Lifespan the so called spent dairy cows are prodded on to transport trucks and shipped to slaughter houses An undercover investigation at a slaughterhouse in California revealed down Dairy cows being kicked shocked pushed with forklifts and water hosed in the mouth and nostrils in an effort to get them to the kill floor most cattle raised for beef endure several mutilations without painkillers including castration and hot iron Brandy Most spend the last few months of their lives in overcrowded feedlots standing in their own waste unreliable stunning practices at the slaughterhouse condemn many cattle to having their throats cut their limbs hacked off while still alive and conscious Undercover investigations at Kosher slaughter houses in the United States have documented the routine practice of cutting open the throats of fully aware and alert cattle Fish and other sea animals are sensitive intelligent creatures who have a demonstrated capacity to suffer pain massive trawling nets indiscriminately drag hundreds of tons of fish and other animals along the ocean floor as They are dragged up from the ocean depths the fish undergo excruciating ly painful decompression the Extreme changes in pressure can rupture their swim bladders and pop out their eyes They are then tossed on board where the surviving fish either suffocate, or are crushed to death? Others are still alive when they are hacked apart on these floating slaughterhouses Untold millions of dolphins turtles and other non-target aquatic animals are also killed by Ocean trawler nets each year Today approximately one in five fish consumed worldwide is raised in Captivity like Factory farmed animals on Land Farm raised fish are crowded by the tens of thousands in small disease and excrement ridden areas for their entire lives When fish reach market weight they are loaded onto tanker trucks and shipped to slaughter where common killing methods include slow suffocation farmed animals are every bit as intelligent curious and capable of feeling pain and Suffering as the dogs and cats so many of us know and love if you are at all moved by this film Please do your part make a commitment today to explore a vegan diet it could be one of the best decisions of your life by withdrawing our support of this cruel and violent system We can put our ethics on the table and make a statement for a kinder and more compassionate society for all animals for delicious vegan recipes Nutritional information and tips on making the transition to a plant-based diet please visit choose veg calm you

I wish they did it a different way like putting an animal (like a cat or dog too sick to continue living) down before cutting off their meats and such. Its such a disgrace and i honestly cannot believe a person would want such a horrific job.

There should just be strong regulations for how these animals are being processed, and we should have to wait patiently for the food to get to our grocery stores

Also, those people who work there will not stop doing it because of some vegan people who doesn't eat meat. Human healthy food is combined of everything, first of all meat.

    Yeah…just showing me clips of only bad slaughter houses won't effect me, it's one thing to show your view on being vegan and shoving it down our throats more than the meat me we eat. Sorry you snowflakes in the comments can't handle real life but this is how things work and always will work. It's literally our need and in our DNA to eat meat, we have teeth specifically to cut down and eat meat. If everyone went Vegan than I would expect the next few generations to die out due to the shear lack of needed meat and the stuff in meat that help form our bodies. Most of you people will forget about this video in about a week or so and not care about eatting meat anyway so don't pretend you suddenly know the right and wrongs and everything about being a true vegan.
