The Food Animal Education Network

The number of people in the United States who are directly involved in production agriculture shrinks every year. Today, 2% of the United States population produces all the food for the entire country.

At the same time, how we produce food has changed significantly. Today's farmers employ the newest technologies and their farms often look very different from their grandparents' farms or even their parents' farms.

You have questions about how your food is produced? We have answers.

Our intent is just to explain how and why things are done. We aren't trying to promote one system over another, or even food animal products in general. Our goal is to provide you with the information that you need to make that decision for yourself.

We thank you for visiting our site. We are interested in your feedback. Check back often as we will continually add information. In the meantime, if you have unanswered questions, feel free to submit them to us through the links throughout the site.
