DOCUMENTARY: The Next Pandemic Could Come From an American Factory Farm (VICE News, 11 Dec 2020)

This video from VICE News examines how big-ag corporate factory farms create conditions that could incubate and spread the next big pandemic virus. (VICE News, 11 Dec 2020)

At 5m 19s in the video, VICE News describes the NPPC as the National Pig Producers Council. It is actually the National Pork Producers Council. VICE News regrets the error.

This video contains some information that was obtained through trespassing and other illegal acts. That content is likely from third parties and not from VICE News reporters. Resources For Life does not condone or promote illegal actions as a means to seek positive outcomes. The most impactful information in this video comes from the farmers who are seeking small-scale farming operations. People involved in farming are more likely to listen to other farmers, and eventually consider a new model of small-scale agriculture that is better for them, the animals, and consumers.
