Joseph : The most disgusting "business" operation I have ever seen.

Salicia Aragon : Stay away from these Smithfield Brands: Smithfield Eckrich Farmland Armour Cook's Gwaltney John Morrell Kretschmar Curly's Garando Margherita Healthy Ones

stdavis22 : this video doesn't even show the best part...when a hurricane runs into the carolina coast and dumps a foot of rain over the course of 2 or 3 days these cess pools overflow into the landscape and rivers and creeks and kill all the fish for miles and miles and destroy the wetland habitats for hundreds of species...but its ok, everyone just keep having 5 kids and overpopulate the world so we need factory farming, mother nature will evict us eventually

Sage Adams : And how do you stop this? By being loud, and letting your senator know you demand change.

Brian BarrSinister : Flying across the country from Michigan to Nevada I have often wondered what the oddly colored, semi-isolated patches were. Now I know. Thank you for the information.  This is just another situation that is an environmental/social powder keg. Unbelievable companies have subverted common sense and the well being of our populace for ridiculous profits. Unconscionable.

RawVeganThings : This is also how crops get contaminated with viruses and disease from the waste sprayed onto them. Glad I'm vegan.

Simon Clark : Answer to all this? Go vegan.

Whatever : doesn't look like it would take much more than a hard rain to wash that junk to the neighboring farm. no wonder we get salmonella in peanut butter and lettuce

TheNinja : This happens because we fund it. To help reverse this, stop eating meat or reduce your meat consumption. Local farms still produce waste and methane, but if you can, buy from small business. Dairy is also a huge offender. The best way to fight this is to reduce dairy consumption. Milk can be replaced with several different kinds of non-dairy milk and maybe make cheese a once in a while thing?

catquack : Another reason to go vegetarian.  How sad to have to partake in this type of industry.

Vainth : Just look a blind eye, because it makes YOU feel good when you eat pig products.  Who cares right?  As long as YOU are happy.  As long as YOU survive. As long as YOU don't pay. That's the problem with people today. They just care about themselves and value  just themselves.

scottg77r : We don't buy meat from the store. I hunt/kill deer and wild boar also turkey. We get our beef from a friend that raises cows. Chickens also from a friends farm. If more people would hunt and buy from local small family farms it would help. We eat deer meat the most. I Understand not everyone can hunt or can get meat from a local farm. Hoping one day i'll have enough land to have my own farm.

Justin Pearman : They should fill those 'ponds' with biochar and let it soak to saturation then loader-it-out and sell it to farmers growing non-food crops. Switchgrass-for-ethanol (and biochar production) would love it! The minerals, the nitrogen, the phosphorus... ...the switchgrass would grow like crazy! If they coupled the swine waste filled solid biochar product with a nearby cattle farm's manure and let it compost with some other fast-growth carbon-rich crops (again, switchgrass is awesome for this), it'd make an excellent compost in no time! use a manure spreader to spread the composted biochar-filled manure over switchgrass cut to ~8" between harvests, the switchgrass would grow like crazy, produce copious quantities of hydrogren-rich high-lignocellulosic harvest that could cut down on corn>for>ethanol fields, turn otherwise untillable fields into high-value farmland, sequester carbon, produce an extremely fast-growth hydrogen-rich crop that would otherwise reduce the need for other crops to be grown for energy. This, of course, says nothing per the treatment of the pigs themselves. Tragic. Pigs are incredibly intelligent animals. But there are solutions to these problems from an environmental perspective that would drastically reduce the negatives and drastically increase the positive outputs from the operation. ...and, most likely, extremely profitably.

Mirco soft : Public knows what underwear justin bieber have on , but dont know how our food are made

Jaded Expat : So glad I'm a vegan. 10+ years.

Priestess Auset Ra Amen : I did not know this till I moved to Shelby NC, I live right up the hill from a chicken farm, and kept noticing us having constant colds,headaches and allergies which we never had before, then the invisible biting mites that leave welts on your skin, you can't see them but feel them crawling all over your body, hair and even ears, and looking at the people around me how the move and look, I started to do some research and low and behold I ran across articles on chicken farms in the south and now this video, I have had to mix essential oils like cedarwood, cloves, thieves oil, eucalyptus, and peppermint with flower of sulfur to coat our skin to sleep at night, and add sulfur to our lotions and hair grease, to stop the damn mites, I have never in my life experienced anything like this, its like a damn sci fi movie its absolutely maddening and then the stench from the farms, I can't wait to move the hell out of this state, wish I would have done the research before moving here, we as a species just need to stop eating meat already, its beyond disgusting.

shanjinrong : Stop eating meat please!

Carl Christensen : And I'm sure the local residents vote Republican because "values" --- allowing corporate crooks to get away with this BS (and worse).....

Tom A : And what else did anyone ever expect to be the result of generation after generation of people shitting too many kids out

Oki Boy : Powerful Joe rogan

ogrebattle22763 : The government makes millions of dollars with the pig or pork industry along with beef & chicken & tobacco etc... so it's not surprising or shocking that this shit goes on unnoticed or secretly like this....

tonksloopy : For all of you out there saying that "this is the reason you have stopped eating pork" are seriously not considering that this also happens with beef and poultry (not even getting into seafood, either). If you are buying and eating flesh from your local supermarkets remember that this is their origin.... Make better decisions with your food choices. If you are not going to stop eating flesh then think about cutting down A LOT, and if you so desire, buy from local farmers if you have that privilege. Don't make meat consumption a convenience. Don't do it for the sake of doing it. THINK a little.

Gaynor Armash : This is sickening..we live in a sad sad world.....

Blake Johnson : Are we supposed to be mad because peoples houses are being sprayed with feces or because of the truth behind the meat industry? We can be mad and shocked at them and write to our government rep but we support this when buy it at the shops.

Sbeast : Future generations are face palming so hard...

michael bush : Thanks for exposing the Truth! I have just taken up being a Vegan, I am into my second week, And feeling much better than I ever have done!

StAleksandra80 : JUST GO VEGAN.

Paul M : Guys Guys Guys.... I am all for making these things go away - BUT there is NO POINT pointing the gun at the 'providers' of food... none what so ever.     If we want to make a difference it has to surely come from the individual consciousness of each individual person on the planet - to say no to Pork products ( in this case ) .... these companies merely spring up in response to demand... No demand - no pig farms.   While this video is great in raising awareness - I feel it is looking at the stable door after the horse has bolted?!     While there is a demand from within any human to eat meat ( of which I am one...although rarified and seldom these days ) there will be someone wanting to make money out of it..... just saying - change begins with each individual making make different choices.... but not judging those who make choices unconsciously or against how I 'think' things 'should be'.  Namaste to all... x

Kurt Walter : Haha "The only way we can end this is by stop eating meat!!" Shut up vegans and vegetarians, stopping the consumption of meat will do nothing to help the situation. Our country needs to invest money in areas to improve and regulate these types of industries and the environment. The general public needs to stop moving their attention toward the racially charged issues that the media is blowing way out of proportion and needs to put their time, energy and most important money in the important areas such as these...

Amy Glass : OMG this made me cry. I am doing a presentation for my environmental class and I hope you do not mind but I wanted to use your video in my power point. I will cite your work accordingly. Thank you so much for exposing the truth. I think I want to become  a vegetarian.

Casper Cameron : i wish there was 5 months where no- one buys anything from smithfield. then they would go out of bussines

GABOS : Joe Rogan podcast anyone?

Jena Kaske : This disgusts me.. I'm glad I don't eat pig, very rarely will I ever eat it. I seriously want a pet pig though.. lol

Ne Le : Chocolate rain

Zen Locke : Oney really got this guy's voice spot on

stp479 : Fantastic work, no doubt you're on the "must listen to" list at the NSA!

yak branson : its called a lagoon. they are legal for neighborhoods, factories all kinds of places.

Loren Hart : Thanks to Mark Devries and everyone who helped with this video. Great to see factory farming being exposed for the terrible injustice that it is. It's time to put an end to this destructive and unnecessary system. Now!

Kim Jong-FUN : If pigs are "so smart" they would learn how to not taste so good. lol. Srsly though, this is bad.  Only eat free range, happy pigs.  Also say no to shit fields.

Maireid Sullivan : Really shocking to see what we already know! This is an inevitable offshoot of urban living where people are crammed into smaller and smaller living spaces - no more back gardens or time to grow food leading to full outsourcing of food production to industries that are only focused on the Single Bottom-line.  No wonder society is so dysfunctional with System breakdown on so many levels while the Stock market is celebrating an all-time high!  Truly insane!

FaZeXXXKonazYoungxReaper XXX : Corporate greed overrides public safety, polluting the land, people's right to enjoy their home, and treating animals in a humane way. If we treated our dog or cat this way and were caught doing so, we would be punished. Why can't these corporations pay a little more and be humane about the animals they use for food? Because they don't have too! They have so much money they don't care. This farm showed had plenty if space to give the pigs more room. If people in surrounding area have wells they could be getting that waist in their water. This is a problem that occurs in poultry, beef, and pig farms. The only way to make a difference is if people get together and speak up about the injustice occurring to the animals, the poor within the communities of these farms, and the destruction and poison of the land by the company spraying the toxic water in the air. Many are needed so let's get a petition going.

Larry Finklestein : They could take the pig feces and urine and make gun powder. There would probably still be a lot of excess urine but it could be done. I would think they could also make Fertilizer? The obvious solution would be to have the farms located closer to the ocean and build their own sanity waste plant and put the pig waste the same place we humans put ours.

Juliet Whitehurst : 🐷Support nc farm families 🐷

Twostones00 : Stop eating Smithfield products.  Contact your congress men if they are not Smithfield whores.  File chargers against Smithfield.  Sue them if you can.  Elect people who will protect the people instead of the corporations.

bigraviolees : Dems are flawed, but closer to sane and manageable. The GOP exist to eliminate regs at the cost of lives and life. The EPA nothing near where it should be in terms of power for fighting back. When a GOP judge can do things like run to court and reverse a EPA asbestos ban and leave 10 thousand US citizens dying every year from it  while many safe sub materials exist its clear the terrorist to this nation are GOP and greed, except to the fools who watch Fox news and think they have a clue

TheKrazieness : Ironic. Looks like a concentration camp.

cholrus69 : This isn't their only operation. I found another one here (in gmaps): 34°28'12.7"N 78°35'33.7"W The first one is here: 885 S NC 50 Hwy, North Carolina

wakeupscreaming : This is disgusting. I don't eat much meat to begin with. But this makes me not want to have any at all. When you're in a restaurant, and looking at a menu, with juicy descriptions of burgers with bacon, you don't tend to make the connection -- you don't care where it came from, or how it got there.

jeepers : PowerfulJRE

JEB BY : This is why I raise my own meat.
