    It began in the 1920’s but the article doesn’t cite a specific creator. It may not have been created by one person but might have began as a trend that spread like wildfire. Like a “follow the leader” type technique that became popular over time.

    The first factory farming operation is attributed to Celia Steele, a Delaware housewife. In 1923, she ordered 50 chicks for her farm, but got 500 instead! She found a way to maintain their lives through the winter by keeping them indoors and giving them vitamins–thus creating the first factory farm. This account comes from the book Eating Animals, by Jonathan Safran Foer.
