All my red meat and pork is organic or from very small farms that might as well be organic. I do this as much to avoid meat from brutally inhumane factory farms as I do to avoid the antibiotics and hormones animals get.
More propaganda. You know that they kill animals to provide your meat, right? Please explain the humanity in that.
Do you guys never tire of perpetuating the lies?
Please show some proof of “brutally inhumane factory farms”. Specifically wrt to beef.
Go ahead - I’ll wait. And, FYI - PETA vids are no proof of anything. [/quote]
wasnt there some kind of news story about using tasers to keep cows standing before they were slaughtered recently?
raising an animal to kill it is not a priori proof of inhumane treatment. if a beast lives a nice life and is then slaughtered, i am fine with that. if a beast lives a life of suffering and then is slaughtered, i have more of a problem with that.
Im generally opposed to legislating morality, but i think farms that treat their animals well should advertise this fact, and there should be oversight of these claims.
It is a very tricky subject, and gets even moreso when one consider the growing world population and its demand for food. we should be grateful that the type of beef we consume is even a point of consideration for us as it shows how minimal our problems are compared to a large part of the world who eat whatever is available.
