The factory farming industry in our country has shown a lack of
ethics and disrespect toward humans, animals and the environment that
should be appalling to all of us. In this article, Dr. Will Tuttle
exposes one of the many outrageous standard practices of this industry:
what cows are fed.
Everyone knows that cows are natural herbivores that thrive on grass.
However, in order to reduce costs and raise their profits, the factory
farming industry decided to ignore this simple fact and started feeding
cows an unnatural “enriched” diet containing the rendered flesh and
organs of fish, chickens, turkeys, pigs, and other animals, including
dogs and cats who are euthanized every year, and the road-kill and other
carcasses collected by governmental agencies.
Not surprisingly, they also feed cows the ground-up slaughterhouse
by-products of other cows turning them not just into carnivores, but
into cannibals as well. To read the article, please visit A Poignant
Riddle: Are Cows Herbivores or Omnivores?:
Going against nature’s ways, and therefore God’s ways, should be a
red flag that something has terribly gone wrong with agribusiness with
devastating consequences for all Creation. Those that support this
industry are accomplices of the exploitation of farmed animals and all
the unethical practices this entails. Our Christian faith revolves
around the principles of justice, compassion, mercy and love. There is
no room for clearly avoidable cruelty, devastation and sickness.
