The animals are still not happy because they are still livestock. Many people become vegetarian because they realize what consuming kinds of meats is. Its industry still develops and more efficient. Therefore, various things related to their products, livestock, would be no waste whole task. However, as a result, what they eat in an industry is also changed with development.

For workers, feeding it is a daily task, and one of the essential things to earn more is keeping the cost to the livestock down.
One thing that livestock would be happy is free. In other words, livestock in organic farms is happier than other livestock. Organic farms follow some instructions from the American organization. Thus, an environment that the livestock spend is comfortable. Some foods that people eat is inhumane. For example, goose liver is made with tasks that the goose must overeat. An environment of the farms is various. In other words, to make a product, workers try to do in many ways. The environment is improved. However, some workers do as taking care of non-organic farms. As a result, to make livestock happy, the important thing is free like people spend. Livestock also needs what a human does.
