About the Cover

Farm animals raised on pasture have room to roam and opportunities to engage in natural behaviors—foraging, rooting, grazing, dust bathing, lounging in sun or shade. Most animals raised for food in the United States, however, feel neither sun above nor grass below. They are crammed into factory farms with little or no room to maneuver. In recent years, a number of states have enacted laws banning some of the more extreme forms of confinement, but there is still a long way to go. AWI reviews the reform efforts and summarizes the current state of factory farming.
