Intensive animal farming begins

Intensive animal farming begins when Celia Steele raises her first flock of chickens for meat. Celia Steele becomes the first person in Delaware to raise chickens for meat, separate from egg production, and sells them for 67 cents per pound. In five years, she would process 10,000 chickens per year, becoming a pioneer of the intensive animal farming (a.k.a. factory farming) industry.
