Factory Farms in the US

Here's a great website I just stumbled upon today called Factory Farm Map and, as you can well guess, it maps the factory farms in the United States. When you visit the site you are able to change the filters so as to see the difference for different types of animal operations, as well as the changes over time (1997-2007). It's a very useful educational tool since it also has information on how factory farms affect every single one of us in multiple ways.

I've also added a widget to the blog where you can see the map without leaving the page (check the lower right hand side of the screen). Seeing the information laid out like this is sure to make you want to analyze your relationship to this inadequate food system.

Make the last days of the year count and make 2011 a better year for your health, your karma and your planet: go veg!
