1 CAFO’s in New Zealand Done by Jaye

2 What does CAFO stand for?  - Concentrated (or Confined) Animal Feeding Operations or also known as Factory Farming  In New Zealand, our farms usually consist of chickens, pigs, cattle and fish …  “New or existing operations which stable or confine and feed or maintain for a total of 45 days or more in any 12 month period more than the number of animals specified – they also have no grass or other vegetation in the confinement area during the normal growing season.”

3 Is it legal in New Zealand?  Yes it is legal in New Zealand as long as the farm follows regulations and laws surrounding it.  But what about the way animals are sometimes treated? Current animal welfare legislation works to protect factory farming *practices* not the animals.  SAFE (Save Animals From Exploitation)

4 What is the layout of these farms? This is a salmon farm in the South Island. Conventional hen caging

5 What is the layout of these farms? Indoor shed at dairy cow farm Pigs in single crates

6 Advantages:  Cheaper products  Less land space used for farming  More job openings for the community  Brings more money into the community
