This is why I super appreciate and love the book Animal Liberation (1975) by Peter Singer -- a classic that started modern-day vegetarianism.

The author, my favorite philosopher, uses industry booklets and instruction manuals as examples of what happens at the farms (and you know worse things happen than what is described). It's horrific stuff, enough to make the reader want to decrease their meat consumption. I'm 99% sure that since its publication, the % of animals coming from CAFOs has increased. And since then various other problems appeared (chickens genetically engineered to grow so fast that often their bones break -- resulting in more suffering than before).
