CAFO provides an unprecedented view of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations where an increasing percentage of the world’s meat, milk, eggs, and fish are produced. As the photos and essays in this powerful book demonstrate, the rise of the CAFO industry has become one of the most pressing issues of our time. Industrial livestock production is now a leading source of climate changing emissions, a source of water pollution, and a significant contributor to diet-related diseases, and the spread of food-borne illnesses. The intensive concentrations of animals in such crammed and filthy conditions dependent on antibiotic medicines and steady streams of subsidized industrial feeds poses serious moral and ethical considerations for all of us. CAFO takes readers on a behind-the-scenes journey into the alarming world of animal factory farming and offers a compelling vision for a food system that is humane, sound for farmers and communities, and safer for both consumers and the environment.

Talk about CAFO: The Tragedy of Industrial Animal Factories

If I didn't already give up meat and dairy before reading this, I would have given it up after finishing it.
A sickening look at a huge economic and environmental issue that is usually kept invisible and protected by permissive regulations. I like the irony of the horror of CAFOs being turned into a coffee-table book.
The horrors of factory farming are being graphically revealed in this book which made me sad to see all the cruelty that the animals are being submitted too. Now we need to make changes - but how?

This a stunning, human,intelligent and important book that everyone should read. It should be required. It should be taught in the classroom. It is important to be reminded of our capacity for empathy and our power to relieve certain atrocities via personal choice, when so many world issues seem beyond our influence. This one is easy on a person by person scale.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in where food comes from and why we must change our ways. It's not WHAT'S for dinner but WHO'S for dinner and we must come to terms with the choices we make. We can all do more to make this a kinder and more compassionate world for all beings. This book would be great for discussion classes and reading groups.
I became an advocate for animals when I clicked on the humane society's undercover work on an industrial pig farm. Although I "knew" factory farming was bad I was both afraid of seeing the images and unaware of how terrible it really is. My eyes have now been opened and I will never turn back from adding my voice and donations to stop this terrible evil of our times. I have read many books on factory farming and other animal issues. This is the best book I have read to date on this subject. It is a compilation of essays by a whole range of concerned people in many fields. It is incredibly interesting and hard to put down, does not over-do the emotionalism which is inherent in such a subject, while laying out all the facts in a very well researched and complete way. Just read this book - it will give you the whole picture.

In addition to the cruelty aspect this book lays out the incredible environmental cost of industrial agriculture, and gives extremely viable alternatives. We have all been fed a huge lie just to keep increasing the profits of big agra business at the expense of the planet. This is a completely unsustainable model kept going by corporate greed and government turning a blind eye to the excesses and downright criminality of their corporate buddies. The bio-diversity and climate of our planet is being affected. I feel much more educated on the subject now that I know the facts and figures of where factory farming is taking us.

I thank everyone who contributed to this wonderful book.
Rich, informative narrative re the large scale animal food industry. Powerful images. This book is easily worth 4X the price.
This book is exactly what I need in order to show the truth to those who are unaware of the inhumane treatment of factory farmed animals. I will use it indefinitely in my advocacy. Thank you for shipping it quickly and in excellent condition.
