Possible change to lead sentence

Hello, all!

I'd like to discuss possibly changing the lead sentence slightly to more accurately reflect the usage of some of the terminology. This phrase "...also called factory farming, is a modern form of intensive farming that..." is really rather insulting to farmers, with the possible exception of some of the smaller producers. I'd like to discuss adding the words "by opponents of the practice" right after the words "factory farming".

I'll admit readily I can't find any real sources that indicate it's actually incorrect to call it this. Even Merriam-Webster makes no real distinction. Please see http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/factory%20farm. However, to most farmers it would be roughly equivalent to calling law enforcement officers "pigs" (sorry for the 1960s protest reference). Additionally, while there is a popflock.com resource page for the "N" word, I don't see articles actually using the word in reference to people. Why is it okay to insult farmers just because there are so much fewer of them than there used to be?

If approved, the new lead sentence would read: "Intensive animal farming or industrial livestock production, also called factory farming by opponents of the practice, is a modern form of intensive farming that refers to the keeping of livestock, such as cattle, poultry (including in "battery cages") and fish at higher stocking densities than is usually the case with other forms of animal agriculture--a practice typical in industrial farming by agribusinesses."

I'm not too sure about the idea of making a somewhat long sentence even longer, but perhaps someone else has an idea on how to deal with that. I'm not going to make the change until there is some feedback here. Thanks! Adv4Ag (talk) 22:58, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

I know I said I'd wait till there was some additional comment, but after a week with no comment at all, I decided to just go ahead and try it. Any and all comments are still welcome. Oh, and if anyone has any ideas on how to make the sentence possibly more concise, I'm all ears! Thanks! Adv4Ag (talk) 00:33, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture?

This article treats 'Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture' as synonymous with 'intensive agriculture', though this is at odds with Fish_farming#Intensive_aquaculture. I have not done much reading on aquaculture, but on first pass, I think the Fish_farming#Intensive_aquaculture section is closer to what we should cover in this article, as the 'intensive' descriptor relates to high inputs and animal density, not (necessarily) whether the system recycles waste.Dialectric (talk) 19:57, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
