Feeding Factory Farms

According to the new report by the Global Development and Environment Institute of Tufts University, “Feeding at the Trough,” between 1997 and 2005, factory farms, the main purchasers of corn and soy, were able to save an estimated $3.9 billion per year by obtaining them at below-cost prices.

These cattle, chicken and pig operations (factory farms) saved an estimated $35 billion over the 9 year-period, and hence acquiring a competitive advantage over diversified farms that grew their own crops. As a result small family farms have been disappearing in the US at an alarming rate, and the amount of waste produced by industrial farms are polluting soil and water at increasing rates.
