Very dirty farm – level 2

29-08-2014 15:00

A charity which helps animals released a shocking video. It shows the terrible conditions at a dairy farm in North Carolina.

The cows live in a deep pool of their own faeces and urine. The mass is full of bacteria and it spreads diseases. There is no grass or bedding for the cows, and there are always flies around them.

The farm has 10 days to make things right.

Difficult words: fairy farm (farm which produces milk), faeces (waste of the body), urine (yellow liquid waste which comes out of the body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

How would you punish the owners of the farm?
