(THE CONVERSATION) - Intensive livestock farming is a huge global industry that serves up millions of tons of beef, pork and poultry every year. When I asked one producer recently to name something his industry thinks about that consumers don't, he replied, "Beaks and butts." This was his shorthand for animal parts that consumers – especially in wealthy nations – don't choose to eat.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!
