Worldwide, millions of egg-laying hens, pregnant sows, and calves raised for veal are severely restricted in battery cages, gestation crates, and veal crates, respectively. Scientific evidence has shown that animals kept in such intensive confinement are frustrated and distressed.

Intensive confinement can prevent farm animals from exercising, fully extending their limbs, or engaging in many other important natural behaviors. Constrained in barren cages and crates, animals can experience long-term physical and psychological problems. Battery cages for egg-laying hens and crates for pregnant sows and calves are simply not appropriate environments.

HSI works with governments and corporations to enact reforms to improve the treatment of farm animals. You can help by reducing, refining, and replacing meat, egg, and dairy products in your diet.
