Snopes rates that particular picture as a fairly misleading "veal hutch" which isn't actually used like that. What’s pictured here are not crates in which calves are imprisoned within an hour of their birth, condemned to spend their entire lifespans stuffed into little boxes that don’t even provide them enough room to turn around in order to keep ...

The early to mid 1900s saw the division of chickens into breeds that produced lots of eggs versus breeds that produced lots of tasty meat. Males of the first type (egg layers) obviously don't lay eggs, and they don't grow large enough to produce lots of tasty meat. It costs factory farmers much, much more in terms of feed and real estate to raise those ...

The Wikipedia page on chick culling provides a good overview. Note that quoted claims confuse the general practice of culling with the specific practice of maceration.

I maintain that his brain waves ...

It seems there have been an exchange of the order of magnitudes of times, to get attention via social sharing. Anyhow: Yes, these outdoors crates are intended for calfs; This paper mentions that (in France) two specific calves were brought into the crates when 2 weeks old; https://www.researchgate.net/publication/...

The internet makes it fairly easy to find a site that sells calf hutches. For example, this site sells hutches, buddy hutches (for pairs of calfs) and group hutches. You can check out the dimensions: https://calfhutch.com/. Here's a competitor: https://loyal-roth.com/products/calf-hutches/. Both sites claim that their hutches promote comfort for the calf (...

These are apparently two claims to analyse: The newspaper report is accurately citing its material. Although this little snippet from the article in question is bit of old news. Foodwatch went public with this report on September 22, 2016, to promote the book „Das Schweinesystem: Wie Tiere gequält, Bauern in den Ruin getrieben und Verbraucher getäuscht ...
