Time Interviews Animal Factory Author David Kirby

April 23, 2010

Time magazine has an interview with David Kirby, author of Animal Factory.

A couple inaccuracies: the interviewer uses “livestock” interchangeably with “farm animals” in the second sentence, which makes her opening claim impossible to understand (the word livestock does not encompass poultry; and poultry account for more than 90 percent of farmed animals raised in the USA.)

Also, in the interview Kirby doesn’t acknowledge that most beef cattle live the first six to eight months of their lives outdoors on the range.

Those quibbles aside, it’s a great interview that will give millions more people new reasons to avoid animal products. (Via Paul.) Link.
