This Animal Aid booklet focuses on animal farming, with sections on breeding, confinement, disease, slaughter and ‘high welfare’ products.
Also detailed are the mutilations to which animals are subjected. Chickens, for instance, are ‘debeaked’, and lambs and calves have their testicles removed, often without anaesthetic.
Other revelations relate to the destruction, by the egg industry, of millions of newborn male chicks every year; and, by dairy farmers, of around 100,000 newborn male calves.
A print copy of the booklet is available free on request from firstname.lastname@example.org
