“Reality Check”

“Reality Check” is a project of Watershed Media, producers of the award-winning book CAFO: The Tragedy of Industrial Animal Factories.
Watershed Media, in collaboration with grass-roots groups around the country, develops slides that educate communities about the risks related to public health, ecological degradation, economic prosperity and animal welfare posed by CAFOs. The agribusiness industry spends millions of dollars each year to spin their own stories about the ‘realities’ of factory farming — “Reality Check” shows the true impacts of industrial livestock production using real-life photos and descriptions paired with agribusiness’s terminology. Communicating the real stories about the true impacts of industrial livestock production is essential to changing the way we produce food and protect the land, rural communities, animal welfare and public health. “Reality Check” is a creative part of that long-term effort.
