As the president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary, the Nation's leading farm animal protection organization, Gene Baur campaigns to raise awareness about the negative consequences of industrialized factory farming and our cheap food system. He has conducted hundreds of visits to farms, stockyards and slaughterhouses to document conditions, and his photos and videos exposing factory farming cruelty have been aired nationally and internationally, educating millions.
His book, Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food, a national bestseller, is a thought-provoking investigation of the ethical questions involved in compassion and helps stop the systematic mistreatment of the 10 billion farm animals that are exploited for food in the U.S. every year.
