Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) 18% of World's Human-induced Greenhouse Gases (An HSUS Fact Sheet, 2011) (Orange County, North Carolina) (Pittsburg Hot Plate Chef Chuck Kerber) Opposing Argument Winter Months (Word Press) (Lakeville, CT and Salisbury, CT) 12% of the food was made on the Sterling Farms
22% was local
40% was Vermont raised
52% was VT-produced
48% was regionally raised
53% was regionally produced
27% was certified organic or fair-trade GAPs
Good Agricultural Practices "These consolidated operations are able to produce food in high volume but have little to no regard for the environment, animal welfare, soil and water quality, or food safety."
(Industrial Livestock Production) "As the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) notes, "GHG emissions from livestock are inherently tied to livestock population sizes."
