About Farmed Animal Net

Farmed Animal Net is a collaborative project of eight nonprofit organizations and was developed out of a need for current, easily accessible information on farmed animal issues. The mission of Farmed Animal Net is to empower individuals and organizations with knowledge about the complex issues relating to the billions of animals bred and slaughtered for human consumption. Farmed Animal Net strives to be an objective, trustworthy source of academic and industry information for animal advocates, educators, researchers, the media, legislators, and others.

Farmed Animal Net is comprised of two primary resources, and our weekly newsletter, Farmed Animal Watch. is an online collection of links, publications, research reports, news items, events, and contacts relating to the welfare of farmed animals. Most of the information is organized by topic and source in our "Information Index," however we also have separate databases for contacts and events.
