What’s in Their Feed?

Due to the increase in corn prices, farmers are adding very unusual products to their animals’ feed: trail mix, cookies, licorice, cheese curls, candy bars, French fries, frosted wheat cereal, peanut-butter cups and hash browns. This diet fattens animals easily and quickly. The trend is so widespread that some farmers, like Cevin Jones of Intermountain Beef, who is struggling to feed his 12,000 cattle in light of higher feed costs, is using 100% byproducts, including French fries, Tater Tots and potato peels.

Feeding God’s animals a diet, to which they weren’t design to eat, goes against their nature; and therefore God’s ideal plan. Fattening animals so they grow faster than nature intended brings misery to them and to us, since what we feed them ends up in our bodies and increases the rate of many diseases.
