What does ‘intensive farming’ mean?

This term is used to distinguish hobby farms (up to a few dozen birds) from those designed to provide meat and eggs for large communities. Over time, this term has improperly taken on a derogatory meaning used by associations opposed to breeding. A more correct term should be ‘protected livestock farming’ because it more accurately describes its function of protecting and caring for animals by preventing the creation of diseases, especially those transmissible by wildlife, which is the primary cause of epidemics, along with accidental factors that result in any case from contamination with germs and bacteria introduced from the outside due to carelessness on the part of those who work there. In fact, the farms that are most protected from risks are those that do not provide for outdoors.
