Factory farming map of the UK

Compassion in World Farming have produced a factory farm map of the UK, pointing out that 70% of farm animals in the UK are factory farmed, meaning that around 750 million animals are confined in intensive systems every year. The map shows that Oxfordshire has over 1,449,000 indoor-reared farm animals. Most of these are broiler chickens raised for their meat, but around 43,600 are pigs, giving the county the seventh highest number of indoor-reared pigs in the UK. You can explore the map and express your disapproval to your MP at: http://www.ciwf.org.uk/map.
