Oh whatever...I do care about animal welfare, but I'm an omnivore and love to eat meat and will never change.
I do try to buy free range natural meats whenever possible, but I'll never be a vegetarian.
If you folks spent half of the time you took worrying about these stupid mindless animals and spent that time helping starving freakin children...
THERE WOULD BE NO STARVING CHILDREN!
The pigs' basic needs are denied, and they experience severe physical and psychological disorders.

Okay, I have to say - buck up. I grew up on a farm. We weren't a "production farm", we just had our own chickens for our own purpose and we had a few calves/cows.
Thank God you're not an animal...but then again, thank God you're not a kid being abused by your parents. There are children all around us being starved, beaten, sexually abused....
do you care this much about them? Do you try to watch for them? Do you do something when you identify them? Do you care this much?
there are newborn babies being raped by their fathers before they can be checked out of the hospital.
I just want to say - fight the battles that really matter. When we win them, we'll save all the pigs and the chickens...and even Charlotte.

I'm with you, Shadow88...factory farming is a disgusting practice. Always after the bottom line, these farms have no concern for the animals whatsoever.
The practice has already changed my (and my family's) diet. I try to buy free-range if I buy any meat at all and prefer wild over it all.
