When COVID-19 outbreaks closed meat processing plants across the US, a meat shortage and unprecedented meat prices soon followed. With no plants taking animals, some farmers were forced to euthanize their herds. But what exactly caused this break in the supply chain and could the industry have avoided it? Business Insider visits a farm in Minnesota facing this devastating reality and another in California that was able to avoid it altogether.

So really the unethical farms are suffering boohoo, I couldn’t care less. I believe in consuming meat in the most ethical way possible, giving the animal a good life and a humane death. If they were more self sustainable and treated their animals better they wouldn’t be losing so much money

Farmers around the midwest called around to farmers and and families and gave away their pigs instead of cutting a ditch and killing their pigs. The farmers then put the pigs on their farms and slowly self butchered and didn't let them go to waste. Both needy and non needy got a cut.

I'm going to say it and will probably piss people off but go VEGAN or choose to stay ignorant and un educated 👌. No disrespect I'm saying this cuz you all got a head on your shoulders. Also no hate if u consume animal products that's not how vegans should treat u guys.

Probably wouldn’t work out, they’ve been bred for hundreds of years specifically to be eaten and have lost many of their physical attributes that would help them survive in the wild. The individual animals have also been raised on farms, so they have no sense of survival skills

There's no excuse the euthanasia all those animals especially when meat prices are so expensive people starving throughout the world turn them into mince sausages the problem is the people in charge want everything uniformed that apples got blemish the pork chops too big life is not uniform had to be more alternatives it comes down to money and people with no brains and no balls to make the right decisions

PROTIP : coronavirus didnt shut them down. the fact that the majority of packing houses in america are owned by chinese and russian companies who export 90% of our meat, and refused to accept any more, are what shut them down.

They should have made sure the Animals didn't go to waste. They could have sent those pigs to India or some of the African countries that are having terrible food shortages.

To be healthy you should eat chicken/turkey 3 times a week, pig 1 times a week, and beef once every 2 or 3 weeks.

Some of the reports that I have read on how these animals were euthanized is disgusting. Humans totally deserve COVID-19. I haven’t eaten pork or ham in over 6yrs but still eat chicken sometimes or fish, so am also part of the problem. Humans need to stop killing animals for food source especially with ho which ew actually waste instead of eating. An animal only hunts when it’s hungry, they do not kill for sport or to save for later.

Depends on the barn some are built for 2400 so they get 2400 bigs or so they grow so fast because like you and me if we are all day we would gain lots and lots of wait they have food at the disposable at all times that how they grow so fast
