The Life of Bovines

Some wonder why I object to eating meat. In and of itself, I do not. I believe cows, chickens, pigs, etc. were put here for our consumption. It is part of how we have survived. I do not, however, support the way we use them now. Our over-consumption is causing them discomfort, pain, and miserable lives. Smallholder, a poster over at Naked Villainy, wrote a post a while back regarding the lifespans of our meat sources. That is where my problem lies. These animals are part of our existence....it does not mean they are here to squander.
