This presentation focuses on specific issues surrounding the benefits of sustainable agriculture versus the detriments of industrial agriculture. In particular, listeners will hear examples of industrial agriculture conglomerates’ practices in the slaughterhouses and in the factory farms in which choice meats are raised. These include beef, pork, poultry, and dairy. The conclusion will impress upon listeners the seriousness of the threat facing the American population from industrial agriculture and what must be done to solve this crisis in which we find ourselves.
