Feedlots

Chickens are being forced to live in close confinements with lack of daylight or fresh air, and cattle, pig and goats are crammed up in large feedlots. This restricts the animal from doing much and drastically decreases their lifetime of breeding animals.

Feeding dead cows to chickens, and dead chickens to cows is permited by the FDA

Some cows and chickens are fed to much and injected with so much hormonal growth tablets that they stop walking and collapse, because their legs cant carry their weight anymore and there heart is too weak to continue.
