  • How does 'factory farming' increase energy conversion rate
    • Restricted movement - less energy used contracting muscles
    • Environment kept warm so less heat loss from the body
    • Controlled feeding so the animals receive the optimum amount / type of food for maximum growth / no wastage
    • Predators are excluded - no loss to other organisms in food chain
