Factory farming, online
How does your county stack up?
Editor’s note: Stories of this ilk are included in the blog to inform those in our industry how agriculture is being presented to and perceived by the public.
A new interactive map posted by Food & Water Watch shows concentrations of American factory farms at the national, statewide, and even county-wide level.
The map allows a variety of searches: by animal quantity, by farm quantity, even by type of animal (beef cattle, hogs, dairy cows, broiler chickens, and laying hens). A scrollable list at the right of each map shows the top farm polluters, by state and by county, for each type of animal.
