It is mandatory for dairy cows to give birth every year in order to produce milk. For this, even while they are lactating from their previous birthing, they are artificially re-impregnated.
In many cases when the cost of replacing hens are high, they are starved for up to 18 days and kept in the dark, without water, to shock them into another egg-laying cycle. As babies, the tails of pigs are cut off to minimize tail biting, an aberrant behavior that occurs when these highly-intelligent animals are kept in deprived factory farm environments. In addition, notches are taken out of the piglets' ears for identification.
Dairy Cows, Calves and Veal
Under normal circumstances, cows can live for 25 years. But in modern dairies, they are slaughtered and made into ground beef after just three or four years. Dairy cows must give birth in order to begin producing milk. They have a calf every year and that calf is taken away immediately or after a week to prevent its bonding with the mother. They are kept in hutches which are igloo-like structures. Denied the opportunity to suck their mothers' milk they suck the body parts of other calves

Beef cattle are not adequately protected against inclement weather, and they may die of dehydration or freeze to death. Injured, ill, or otherwise ailing animals do not receive necessary veterinary attention. One common malady afflicting beef cattle is called "cancer eye." Left untreated, cancer eats away at the animal's eye and face, eventually producing a crater in the side of the animal's head.
Unwise and Inhumane Feeding
Over the last 50 years, there has been a dramatic change in the way animals are fed. Unwise and inhumane approaches to raising animals in animal factories have led to mad cow disease, increased liver abscesses, and the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, increased liver abscesses, and the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Food for animals are no longer raised in farms but in crowded animal factories known as large confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs).
Animal Foods From Food Animals
In more clear terms, animals in factories are fed the same species meat. Like cattle-to-cattle. This feed process led to the mad cow disease. In the same way, pig carcasses can be rendered as feed for pigs. Chicken and turkey carcasses meet the same fate.
Drugs and Chemicals
Animals raised inhuman conditions and provided proper food hardly need any medical treatment. But antibiotics, almost the same volumes as used in human medicines, are used in animal factories to promote faster growth. This results in the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria which can infect both humans and animals.
