The entire food industry of the US is a plague. Think the red tone in the beef that you buy is blood? It's actually red colouring added to the beef which is bleached white to kill off potential ecoli strains that develop from the diplorable conditions that these animals suffer under.

Trying to get joe blow with 50 chickens and 10 hogs to see it as a hazard to his health and to others around him.
