Thanks for the reply Gboro... are you happy to work in, & support this type of, intensive farming ?
If you are, fair enough, it’s each to their own set of ethics...for me I’ve always said that if I had to treat livestock the way intensive farming treated chickens, pigs, turkeys etc then it’s time to jack it in...yes we kill animals for food but surely there’s has to be decency shown to them whilst their alive.
Some on here talk about the chlorine washed chickens in the USA, but seem quite happy to tuck into 6 week old Frankenstein broiler poultry stuffed full of antibiotics... which as we both know are needed to control the potential for disease due to their poor living conditions ....safe to eat, hmm really??? Are you sure they’re not helping the rise of superbugs? There’s many who disagree with you. The report from Germany is an interesting quick read.
I think that the animal aid & other compassion in farming reports, say it all about the intensive broiler & caged chicken industries in the EU. An industry built on what many of us see as an abuse of animals to provide cheap unhealthy meat, & eggs....although many DCFC remainers sadly see it as an industry to wax lyrical about....maybe I’m wrong & their always posting their objections to it?
Then again some of these posters are the same people that think battery farms were abolished in 2012. Which must mean, some believe that the changes to these caged birds living conditions, by affording them an area the size of an A4 sheet of paper + shared postcard space, is fair enough? really... Still sounds pretty much like rebranded battery farming to me, but hey ho.
Yes the EUs models are better than the USAs models of intensive farming, but this doesn’t make the EU models any less vile in my opinion. The last two reports show thankfully that although the everyday DCFC remainer may wax lyrical about our intensive chickens, most other compassionate people, still find it abhorrent....might be why your struggling for staff?
EU intensive chickens, some see them as finger licking abused..but no chlorine means others see them as pure clucking Disney ...still, it’s all a matter of opinion eh?
