The Insane Speed at Slaughterhouses

This depiction of how a typical Canadian slaughterhouse processes cattle exemplifies slaughterhouses throughout the world, where workers are expendable, animals are commodities and public health is trumped by profit. “You have 35 seconds: Gut the cow without damaging its organs, and be sure not to drop the stomach on the floor. Do not cut yourself with the swift-moving blade; do not touch the scalding sanitary surfaces. Then, walk in hot water to clean your white rubber boots. Swap your knife out and start over again. Again and again.”

Please visit Can meat factories be safe, at 4,000 cows a day, 3,000 steaks a minute?:

At slaughterhouses God’s farmed animals are tortured and killed, workers are abused and public health is put to risk. If nothing good comes out of them, why should people keep supporting them with their money every time they make a purchase of animal products? Christians are called to expose victimization, to stand up for what is right and most of all to reflect God’s love onto all Creation. At slaughterhouses and factory farms exactly the opposite takes place.
