Comparison of Farming in Production of Food per Acre: Measuring vegan-organic agriculture vs. animal-based agriculture
The Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team (ETT) has completed its report comparing vegan-organic agriculture and animal-based agriculture on an acre per acre basis. Using past Humane Party reports as well as USDA, FAO and animal agriculture industry data, we have compiled a series of tables analyzing the needs of the over 9.624 billion land animals that were raised in the United States in 2017 and have reached significant conclusions.
The Productivity of Vegan-Organic Farming: Measuring small-scale vegan-organic farming against large-scale conventional and organic practices
The “State of Food and Agriculture Report 2014” of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization shows that, “Families run nine out of every ten farms (worldwide) or 500 million farms. Additional analysis shows that family farms occupy a large share of the world’s agricultural land and produce about 80% of the world’s food.” Could small-scale farms be the answer to feeding an ever-growing population? To further that discussion, the Economic Transition Team of the Humane Party has completed its report analyzing the productivity of vegan-organic farming.
Could the soybean be the best possible food for us? It may very well be. A pound of boiled soybeans delivers 82.67g of protein, 463 mg of calcium and over 23 mg of iron, along with many other essential vitamins and minerals. It may also be the most efficient source of protein that can be produced for us to consume anywhere in the world.
Farming Animals vs. Farming Plants Named Most Important and Popular Research of 2017
The report of the Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team, “Animal based Agriculture vs. Plant-based Agriculture: A Multi Product Comparison,” has been named one of the most important research articles of 2017 by Faunalytics. The 27-page report analyzes products of animals and plants from the perspectives of land use, yield, income, expenses, and profitability.
Join the Humane Party and Help Us Envision and Create a Vegan World
Back in 1992, The Union for Concerned Scientists and more than 1,700 more independent scientists called on humankind to curtail environmental destruction. Today in 2017, world scientists have released a second warning notice, stating that most environmental challenges “are getting far worse.” Thankfully there is hope. There is the Humane Party, and within the Humane party there is the Economic Transition Team that is diligently working on bringing these issues to light and on creating effective change. Join the Humane Party to help us accomplish our mission.
Distribution of Animals Used for Agriculture and Manure Generated: Ratio of Manure to Land Application–Conclusions and Findings
The Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team has completed its report analyzing the manure generated from animals. The purpose of the document is to understand the daily generation of animal manure due to animal agriculture and its implications. Recommended rates of manure application to farmlands are taken into account along with each state’s total land and farming-allocated land to evaluate whether the amount of manure generated per state is insufficient, sufficient, or excessive to meet the fertilization needs of each state.
The Value of Information in the Animal Liberation Movement
The animal liberation movement has shed light into the many ways animal exploitation influences our lives and our planet. We now know significantly more than we did a decade ago; such knowledge has strengthened our approaches and has made our actions far more effective. Yet, much work is still required. The Humane Party of the United States has perceived this need and has established the Economic Transition Team, a group of individuals with several backgrounds and expertise, such as environmental scientists, farming and economics experts, and data mining experts. This group has prepared several research reports to provide factual and accurate information to other organizations in order to maximize their efforts.
How Much Is Life Worth?
Animals represent the best example of life having a real, factual value. Every time we walk by the meats section of any grocery store, we see a price tag on the body of an individual, an individual who endured a horrendous life, a life very few of us can even stand observing. The price tag in the market includes taxes, profits for the store, distributors, etc. If such a price has been inflated to add the profits of so many, what is the bottom-line value of their life?
New Documents by the Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team
This week, the Humane Herald’s publication page offers two new important documents written by members of the Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team.
What Will Trump’s New Executive Order Mean for Animal Agriculture?
President Trump’s executive order on “Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America” assigns a task force to identify impediments to farming in the US. One particular impediment is the animal agriculture business. The Humane Party’s Agricultural Policy Transition Team has already done the labor intensive task of crunching numbers and ultimately resolving such impediments.
