Compare this, if you will, to an actual farmer.
His animals know and trust him, because he is the one who provides their food and moves them to greener pastures when they need it.
He is the one who fills their water trough.
When it's time to go to the cow sale, these creatures are healthy, have lived a good life, and are deeply appreciated.
This produces humility, as well, in the people involved in this kind of commerce. Each of these animals is precious and valued.
Can you see that in any aspect of our commercial food industry, concerning animals and animal products?
The chemicals produced by the constant stress and abuse are bad for people.
That is why Native Americans stealthily killed their prey, so that it would not fear, it would not be panicked, it would not be in distress. That
toughens the meat, but how?
The chemicals released by maltreatment change the meat, even in the last seconds of its life.
Dignity = healthy meat. Compassion = dignity.
A much more humane way, to be sure, and much healthier.
PS I saw some of these types of videos late last year. I cried pathetically.
Couldn't help it. The outrage, the sorrow. ugh.
Please don't help these people by shopping without knowledge....
I got the strongest, strangest notion that some of these folks, at the meat producing facilities, were just serial killers and abusers who had found
their one perfect legitimate job, one where they can let all their evil out without consequence, strengthening them in their abusive ways ever more
God help us all.
