Factory Farming, Animal Welfare and the Future of Modern Agriculture

Factory farming, an intensive animal production system that often compromises animal welfare, has become a significant concern in modern agriculture. As consumers become more aware of the ethical implications of food production, the demand for humane and sustainable farming practices is growing. To address these concerns, the future of agriculture must prioritize animal welfare, reduce environmental impact, and promote sustainable practices. This includes adopting higher welfare standards, reducing antibiotic use, providing animals with more space and access to natural behaviors, and transitioning to plant-based alternatives. By embracing these changes, agriculture can evolve towards a more ethical and sustainable future that meets the needs of both animals and consumers.
