Ever wondered, what a huge factory farm looked like from above? Where does all the blood goes? Well considered yourself answered.

Coronado Feeders, Dalhart, Texas (2013)

For his series Feedlots, Mishka Henner stitched together satellite images captured over sprawling factory farming operations.

Henner stumbled across these images of factory farms while researching satellite photographs of oil fields. He didn’t realize at first why these massive, multicolored pools were sitting in the middle of Texas.

Eventually, he discovered that they were lagoons created by the animal waste from the farm feedlots. These waste lagoons contain elevated levels of ammonia, nitrogen, and phosphorous, as well as pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli, Cryptosporidium, and fecal coliform, plus antibiotics expelled in the animals’ waste.
