These kinds of farms are being replaced by larger “factory farms” or agribusinesses, where crops are grown or very high numbers of animals are kept. These facilities may also be called intensive (or industrial) livestock operations or concentrated animal feeding operations. ” In 2011, there were only about 205,000 farms in a country as geographically large as Canada.
