I have always felt that if people had to butcher there own meat they wouldn't eat it. I feel alot of it is diseased, and full of chemical hormones, and the animals are not treated humanely. I have several very large dairy farms around me, and the amount of methane gas given off is incredible. All of the cattle are in feed lots, close packed, covered in their own feces. It is no wonder we don't have more ecoli outbreaks. I read a great book called no more Bvll. Everyone should be worried about cwd.
