Thought since I didn't care to high jack the vegans thread, I was wondering about starting our own thread concerning the raising of meat and discuss the falsehoods posted about the AG industry here. What always upsets me is the people that post the lies that we treat our animals terribly. If this was true would we be outside in -30 degree weather checking cows and feeding hay? Slogging through knee deep mud to get a new born into a warm dry barn? How about calling the vet out for a twisted uterus in a cow and helping the vet by holding it up so he could sew it back together after the c-section? If we didn't care would we be hauling water into this cow's pen and thawing colostrum out for the calf? I can go on and on. I for one am sick and tired of being lumped in with that 0.0001% of people who do not take care of their animals.
