    • 2 Pages

    I am interested in the transitions of dairy farming in Vermont. In the 1950’s-1960’s, dairy farming was using advanced machinery. The farmers were mechanizing the dairy farms. Because of this, a lot of these dairy farms grew bigger, and they made more dairy products. The small dairy farms do not have enough machinery, because they could not afford it. The small farms had to be shut down due to a shortage of money to keep the dairy farms running. Vermont heavily relies on the production of dairy farming. It is estimated that, “dairy annually accounts for 70-80 percent of Vermont’s agricultural sales, making it the number one state in the United States in its dependency on one commodity” (Parsons 1). Since Vermont’s agricultural sales are so dependent on dairy, the farms that produce these products are expected to perform well. The farms that are producing dairy products have become larger in order to produce dairy at a faster pace. This type of responsibility puts a lot of pressure on the workers of these farms.…

    When thinking of where the meat in the supermarket comes from, one might imagine a grassy farm with healthy livestock that was raised by a family. Sadly, this happy image that’s plastered on our products and shown in cartoons is a mere ploy for the customers of the meat and dairy industry. The reality is a gruesome scene of poultry, pigs, and cattle being forced into confined spaces where they suffer every day. A vast majority of farms in the United States focus on producing the largest amount…

    teachers. How many of you have moved house or maybe even just moved rooms? How many schools have you been to? All of you would have at least been to two. The concept of change for many is quite frightening, for some exciting, but for me it’s something that has been quite a regular thing while I was growing up. I’m not talking about my body or changing your sheets I’m talking about the changes that to a kid can seem quite drastic, a big deal, and life changing. It is said that the average…

    animals any different? Despite the way we see pigs, often only mindlessly thought of as bacon, studies have shown that they “outperform 3-year-old human children on cognition tests and are smarter than any domestic animal, and animal experts consider them more trainable than cats or dogs” (“If Your Dog Tasted…”). Now, accepting that these animals are sentient beings that deserve to live without torture, anyone who calls themselves an animal lover cannot overlook the conditions in which animals…
