Unfortunately in today's day and age American farm families are, in most cases, very misunderstood. "Factory Farming" is becoming a buzz word in the media and nearly 100% of the time misrepresents the ideals behind large-scale farming. This term is most often heard when referring to dairy farms, but hog facilities, chicken operations, and even beef feedlots have been referred to as "Factory Farms." These farms, although on a large scale, are family ran operations. They are still America's family farms! Read this article, "Factory Farming" on the Plows and Cows website, about the misleading conceptions from the media on the American Agriculture industry and primarily the battles the dairy industry is faced with today.
