Re: OPRAH SHOWING THE CRUEL WAY OF RAISING PIGS, CATTLE, CHICKENS

Last year I watched a show on Canadian TV that was from the UK. It featured a man called Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall at his farm in Devon called The River Cottage. It was a wonderful series, although short ( to my disappointment ). On the very first episode I watched, they slaughtered lambs and showed the entire process in graphic detail. I was never so impressed with anything and it certainly made me re-evaluate where I buy my meat. I now buy directly from the farmer where possible. I get free range meat that has been humanely raised on natural feeds and slaughtered thoughtfully. The rest I buy from my butcher with careful consideration for the same issues. I just couldn't ever buy my meat from a super market again, after seeing those shows. Some people say they can't afford to eat organically raised meat, but my response is simply to eat smaller portions. If I am what I eat, then I want to eat critters that were treated with dignity and respect. I want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

We just passed a propositon here last Nov that outlaws the use of cramped cages for farm animals.  Particularly laying chickens which are not allowed to stretch their legs or wings because of the size of the cages.
