Generally the farms where the farmers are killing their own stuff, are the grass-fed, organic pastures, yuppie-loved farmers.
Does the traditional, agricultural CAFO farming model kill more animals than the grass-fed, organic meat industry?
In other words, do the factory farmers kill/displace/spray more animals while growing vegetables than the grass-fed people kill while killing animals?
I believe if we could get enough data about just how many animals die in the organic meat industry, that number would be less than the amount of animals Monsanto & Corn people kill just during the agricultural stuff like growing GMO corn, soy and wheat.

I assume industrial farming of grains, soy, etc. does kill more animals. And removes a sustainable habitat for many more. Of course a complicating issue is that it doesn't involve the charismatic domestic megafauna like cows that vegetarians feel self-righteous about not killing; things like field mice don't seem to count.
