When one does go and investigate how it looks at abattoirs you might never eat meat again. :(
Really is one of the most horrid places I have ever been :naughty: :naughty:

Long live the soy patty :tongue:

I was reading an article on lamb from a Karoo foodie. She was saying that her father, a farmer, would hold and soothe his animals while slaughtering them. He would cut the carotid artery and death would come quite quickly. He believed that food was good, but not fear.

I also think that we can learn from the bushmen who apologize and thank each animal that they hunt.

Right MM . :thumbs_up: I do the same , don't let them see the knife , soothe them , close the eyes , and say a thank-you while cutting :)

So , although you do not make pets of them , you still need to treat them with you respect and consideration :) .

:D I love all animals :dance:
And they all seems to be happy here on the farm-yard :)
The main diet for the sheep is fruit-pulp waste , which makes them fat and tasty , and they also keep the grass short so I don't have to cut it :doh: .
I have peacocks , and a couple of geese ....... and Oh yes , I also love rabbit meat , for which I keep a few ......... :whistle:
Then , of course there are all the different birds including nesting Hadedas , as well as a family of slender mongoose , and a more recent resident in the shape of a water mongoose , all of them taking advantage of my hospitality and generocity :doh:

This is one of my new arrivals. I went to the vet and as I was passing through to collect something, this little critter started to whine and scratch at her cage. She was recovering from an operation after being picked up starving and hurt in the street.

She seemed to attach so quickly that the vet asked if I would take care of her while they tried to find her owners. Well you know what that means. :wink:

She is a sweetie, but her one leg is so damaged that it s useless. Poor little thing, I hate to think of what she went through.
