The state of Michigan has officially declared war on family farmers. Bakers Green Acres raises pigs in a humane way. This evidently creates a competition threat to the pork industry, and the government-sponsored mega-corporations can’t have that, so look out small family farmers, here comes the state of Michigan to correct the problem by declaring any pig NOT the right color to be “feral” even if it is raised on a farm and eats at the family dinner table. Bakers Green Acres is fighting back. After all, they really have no choice. It is either that or face the mass killing of their livestock at the hands of the Michigan pig police and the ruination of their farm and livelihood.
This new supposedly “humane” CAFO method requires rendering the chickens blind by “removing the cerebral cortex of the chicken” so that “its sensory perceptions are removed. It can be produced in a denser condition while remaining alive, and oblivious.

The irony is, if a single person treats an animal like this, he/she is charged with animal cruelty, fined, and faces possible jail time if the situation is severe enough. Why then, do the big money-making corporations get to treat their animals in an intensely inhumane way and get away with it? In fact, they get promoted by the USDA!!!
