Vegan Outreach: Hundreds of Millions Fewer Animals Slaughtered in the U.S.

Your Daily Dose of Vegan Outreach has reported that, “In 2009, 2010, and 2011, hundreds of millions fewer land animals were raised and slaughtered for food in the U.S. than at the peak in 2008.”

Looks like our efforts are having an impact!

    I would like to think so, but after orginal data examination I think the main reason lies in the ongoing financial crisis (which began in 2008)

    Note the most stable indicator – pork – is missing.
    But you (and VO) do a great job nevertheless, I would not become vegan without you.

    Thank you!

    How the whole picture looks like if we add meat imports-exports? Maybe the reduction of animals killed in the US was compensated by increased meat imports from other countries?

    P.S. I don’t know whether you have control on that or not, but in Google Reader each of your posts has a big advertisement frame that shows random ads related to key words. For example, this one mentions “meat” so the ad leads to a certain on-line meat shop.

    If you follow the link to the Vegan Outreach blog that was in my post, there are a few follow-up blog posts there and one discusses exports and imports.

    No, I don’t have control over what ads appear – sorry about the meat ad.
