    Animals that are eventually turned into food are not fed at the slaughter house. That's where they are killed.

    You should pick up the book "Fast Food Nation" by Eric Schlosser. There are two or three *very* informative chapters about what the animals are fed on factory farms and what happens to them during the slaughtering process. Those chapters are not super long and you'll find out a lot of good stuff.

    Good luck on your project.

    possibly your use of the holocaust replaced right into a tad unnecessary, notwithstanding, I understand your attitude. selection as against subsistence. In tribal communities, they kill truly what they choose while in our throw away western global we've what's time-honored as mass production farming. maximum animals have a worried gadget meaning they experience discomfort, take a fish out of water and it is going to squirm to loose itself, take heed to the roars of cows in a slaughter homestead and it appears like people screaming for help. I see the imagery. We ought to enable people to exercising their selection and genuine selection is made via expertise. I advise that all and diverse analyze the slaughter homes and mass production farming and recognize the options which are available previously slating one yet another on those web content. on the top of the day its human being selection and your way is largely 'yet differently' and in no way 'the way'. Pythagoras and Einstein did state that truly after we've stopped killing animals do we ever recognize peace. So possibly you've a effectual providing, basically tone down the way in which you convey it to the global. best of success.

    Animals are not fed for 12 to 24 hours before they are slaughtered. It allows the slaughter house workers to remove their organs more easily. It also helps them bleed faster.

    They aren't fed on the killing floor. It does not serve them well for the animals to have food in their systems. They feed on grains and corn in most places depending on the animal. Different animals need different proportions of protein and the feed is calculated based on the laying hens get a different mix then the meat hens for example.

    Chicken is usually fed corn, Cows are usually fed wheat. The increase in whole grains pricing is directly related to the increase of beef and chicken in the diets of asian nations. Pigs are fed slop a mix of wheat, corn and vegatable refuse.

    i don't have resources.

    however, when they are in "storage", to say bluntly, they are fed corn feed, grains and just typical animal feed. once they are in the slaughterhouse, they don't really eat..... :(
