In Defense of Meat

What short stories, novels, or articles present a pro-factory farming perspective?
I'm putting together a lesson plan for college students in an introductory writing course that asks them to consider the first chapter of The Omnivore's Dilemma along with a fictional text; Pollan's text will be a lens through which the students analyze a second work. Half of them will be working with TOD as well as Chapter 5 of The Grapes of Wrath. I'd like to give the other students a short story or novel chapter that celebrates meat, factory farming, or American food culture--something that offers an opposite perspective. If necessary, I'll use an article rather than a piece of fiction.
