Animals in Trouble?

Every year 56 billion animals are killed for food, not including fish or other sea animals. Beef cows live to be around 25 years of age and they are killed the year they are born for meat. Dairy cows are slaughterd around 5 years of age when they stop producing milk they are considered 'spent'. When the hens start to lay fewer eggs they are also slaughterd. Since the male chickens dont lay eggs they are not apart of the meat industry they are now useless to the farmers so they are suffocated by being gassed or minced alive when they are born.
