Factory Farms vs. Pasture-Raised Animals

Description 

Diana Donlon, Director of the Cool Foods Program at the Center for Food Safety, discusses the difference between animals raised on a pasture and animals raised in the industrial agriculture system.  "I mean in the confinement model, that’s when you get the heavy dosage of antibiotics that leads to antibiotic resistance to antibiotic residue in the meat.  To the manure lagoons, to the loss of biodiversity to the ground water contamination, to a whole suite of issues that are not associated with the correct pasture management," said Donlon.
