Stop Poisoning, Neglecting, and Killing Industrial Farm Animals

Target: Tom Vilsack, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture

Goal: Reduce the neglect and abuse associated with industrial farm environments.

Once upon a time, farm animals were viewed as living beings treated with utmost respect. With the current farming industry, farm animals are viewed as means of production, resulting in unhealthy living environments. In industrial farming facilities, many animals are killed inhumanely, all while being pumped with toxic chemicals to produce more food. The industrial farming industry needs to focus on the welfare of its animals rather than the quantity of products being produced.

When farm animals grow up in an overcrowded environment, which many do, disease can rapidly spread. This decreases the quality of food being produced, and it can even impact the food chain as a whole. Stress and pain can also decrease food quality. Outside of potential consumer issues, farm animals in industrial societies often end up having to live in their own feces. They’re even forced to mate, and many female animals are pumped with hormones to increase food production. Antibiotics have also been reportedly used to increase food production as well, which can decrease the animals’ lifespans and quality of life. Overall, the treatment of these animals is unjust and inhumane. They’re killed the minute their food production is finished. We need to prioritize the lives of animals rather than consumer needs.

These animals are forced to live in disgusting, overcrowded environments, which in turn decreases the quality of goods produced. Government officials need to put an end to this inhumane and horrifying treatment. Sign this petition to protest the despicable treatment of farm animals in industrial facilities.


Dear Secretary Vilsack,

The agriculture industry is incredibly toxic for the farm animals involved. They’re treated with little to no respect and/or regard to their lives. They’re forced to live in disgusting environments filled with their feces. These environments are often so overcrowded that diseases can spread and impact the safety and quality of goods being produced. Farm animals are also inhumanely killed after their use is over. The actual lives they live are filled with the use of hormones and antibiotics to increase food production. Forced mating is also a pressing issue that needs to be stopped immediately. The combination of these acts make industrial farms a disgusting form of food production that needs to be monitored and changed as soon as possible.

Please look into the unethical treatment within such industries in order to put an end to farm animal abuse. The lives of these animals are at risk, and if nothing is done, this abusive industry will continue without consequences. No animal should live in an environment in which it’s pumped with unnatural materials and can be killed at any moment. Put an end to this disgraceful treatment. Thank you for your attention to this vital message.

  1. Vilsack you have IGNORED TAXPAYERS DEMANDS! Time to work on this country’s inept cruelty laws!!

  2. YOU need to do something to help these INNOCENT animals !!!!!!!!!

    Earn your salary and enforce the laws and protect these farm animals !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They are living beings who feel pain, they should be treated with
    dignity !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack–aka Mr Monsanto–could care less about animal cruelty; he has NO HEART or COMPASSION. He supports the worst forms of factory farm torture, like ventilation shutdown (VSD). Working for Monsanto, he was the world’s #1 promoter of carcinogenic “forever chemicals” (PFAS). He claimed for years that they’re perfectly safe despite knowing the opposite is true: PFAS linger in the environment forever, & their toxic chemicals have infiltrated the bloodstreams of virtually every animal & HUMAN on Earth.

  4. I’d add that factory farm animals are subjected to TORTURE 24/7. For their entire lives, they have virtually no space to turn around–or even move–in their tiny enclosures: “These environments are often so overcrowded that diseases can spread & impact the safety & quality of goods being produced.” True, & it should be noted that factory farms are a #1 cause of superbugs, foodborne pathogens & illness, greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, ecosystem destruction, & natural resource depletion. For ex: It takes over 600 gallons of our precious water to produce 1 serving of meat! The massive monopolies of Big Ag’s meat, eggs & dairy conglomerates–some owned by China (e.g. Smithfield)–are driving smaller, family-owned American farms (where animals live more humanely in the fresh air)–out of business. So who has given the diabolical Big Ag industry carte blanche to do whatever they please–including severe animal torture? The corrupt POLITICIANS they’ve paid off w campaign contributions thru their super PACs. For ex: Protect the Harvest, run by the biggest supporter of animal TORTURE in world history: Forrest👺Lucas (who Lucas Oil Stadium was named after), a SADISTIC MONSTER👹 who seeks to eliminate EVERY SINGLE protection of animals & wildlife. Yes, Lucas supports boiling, burning & skinning alive, barbaric snare trapping (imagine dying in agony ultra-slowly over days), barbaric lab experiments, puppy mills…& horrifically unspeakable ATROCITIES you can’t even imagine. Forrest Lucas is factory farmers’ best friend but animals worst enemy. I call him the Satan👺 of animals.
