Is there an online list of resources regarding the facts and horrors of factory farming?<br><br>
I've checked out PETA but I'm hesitant to use them as a resource because their reputation, unfortunately, has damaged a lot of their credibility as a resource regardless of how well-researched or substantiated their information might be.

Some compelling resources for people who doubt the cruelty are documents link this one:<br><a href="http://www.aasv.org/aasv/documents/SwineEuthanasia.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.aasv.org/aasv/documents/SwineEuthanasia.pdf</a><br>
You show them <a href="http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/death-on-a-factory-farm/index.html" target="_blank">a video of piglets being slammed on the ground to kill them</a> and they say, "That's cherry picked. It's the worst ones. Most farms don't do that." Then you show them the document. In that document a group of veterinarians explain that blunt trauma to the head is an acceptable way to "euthanize" piglets under 10 pounds. For older pigs, a gun shot or electrocution is "acceptable." In some cases, "pithing" is "acceptable." That's where the killer makes a hole in the animal's head and then sticks a "rod or cane" in there and wiggles it around to turn their brain into mush. These methods of "disposing" of unprofitable animals are routine and legal.

Can't add much to what Eugene and Elaine said. All excellent resources.<br><br>
I might recommend that if you're going to table or leaflet, based on positive feedback I've read from others, if you can get some good samples of mock meats or milk replacers it might increase your reception and positive encounters. Some people have used things like vegan cookies as well.

Lots of good sources above. The only one that I would add is <a href="http://www.humanespot.org/node" target="_blank">humanespot.org</a> - its a repository for research and studies that support animal advocacy. You'll need to request a log on account, but they're very responsive.
