Don't meat-producers take good care of their animals since their profits depend on it?

Producers have found that crowding animals into very small spaces increases profits, until the point where the crowding is so great that the number of animals that die prematurely becomes too costly. This is similar to the transportation of slaves: it was considered "economical" to crowd slaves on the slave ships, even though some died during the trip.
