A new interactive map has been posted on the Internet showing "concentrations of American factory farms” at the national, state and county levels. The map was posted by Food & Water Watch, a group that claims it is "working with grassroots organizations and other allies around the world to stop the corporate control of our food and water."

The map is actually a list of operations from the Ag Census that matches the Environmental Protection Agency’s definition of a confined-animal-feeding operation. Food & Water Watch classifies all of the operations as “factory farms,” and counties with the most animals are listed under the “Top Polluters” category, but with no data to support the ranking.
