"This Is Not Farming"

Oprah's latest "O" magazine (for November) has an excellent and infuriating article about factory farms, where they pack 'em in and let the excrement flow and blow where it may -- rendering nearby areas uninhabitable, and waterways poisoned and dangerous.

The article is on page 190 and doesn't seem to be on the internet yet.

I grew up on a family farm where the animals were handled humanely, the land well cared-for, and the neighbors liked us. I certainly agree with activist Lynn Henning that what she is fighting is "not farming".
