Over 9 billion animals are raised, each year, on factory farms in the United States. Of those 9 billion, 95% of them are chickens raised for meat. That’s 8.84 billion chickens for Americans to eat, each year. Georgia is the largest producer, raising and slaughtering 1.4 billion each year.

Please join me as I welcome Leah Garces, USA Director of the UK based organization, Compassion in World Farming. Leah will be speaking about the factory farming of meat chickens, and the work of the new group she helped found, called Georgians for Pastured Poultry.
