Lynn Henning’s Fight Against Factory Farming Hits Third Gear

November 1, 2011

The latest issue of O Magazine features an eight-page spread about Lynn Henning’s heroic battle against CAFOs—concentrated animal feeding operations that hold thousands of animals in small, confined spaces. Their practices pollute the air, land and water that provide the livelihood for small family farms like Henning’s, which has been in her family for four generations.

Her battle to protect waterways is featured alongside Erin Brokovich and other experts in Participant Media’s latest documentary film, Last Call at the Oasis. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last month and shines a much-needed spotlight on the global water crisis.

She was also a speaker at the Farm Sanctuary’s first National Conference to End Factory Farming, where she was joined by experts in agriculture, public health, and environmental protection.
