Whenever people are involved in anything, there will always be abuse. That's because a small percentage of people are flat out evil. Sometimes they are evil because they have been given unlimited power by an evil force -- think government. In agriculture, far an away there are really great people doing the very best they can for their livestock, their land, their families, and the many millions of people they feed. Just think about it, their incomes and profitability are dependent on it. This is true at every level from production through processing. To blame the majority for the acts of a few is not rational. This is true for any profession except maybe politicians. (That was intended to be humorous.) So here we try to present both sides of the story.
