About my yesterday's journal: http://pennys-tuppence.blogspot.com/2011/01/do-you-want-ammonia-with-that-paco.htm Nellie of ThE MidLiFe CrUiSeR commented:
"I stopped eating meat from factory farms/feed lots. I only eat 100% grass fed. It's not cheap, and so we don't buy it often.
When driving by a feed lot on our travels, I was HORRIFIED by the conditions the feed lot cows are living in. It changed my perception of "farms" instantly.
I couldn't believe the info you posted today. I verified thanks to your sources, and now I'm HORRIFIED that this information isn't splashed across every magazine and newspaper and news program.
Seems like everybody is in bed together. I'm disgusted."
I wish everyone thought like Nellie does. It is a shame that most people don't know what they are eating.
Some, just don't want to know, so this journal is for those who do.
I saw the enormous dirty, horrible feed lots in Dodge City, and you could smell them from miles away. The locals said that it was "the smell of money". It is terrible that civilized people would make animals live like that, for money.
But that is nothing compared to what the milk cows, pigs, turkeys, calves and chickens go through.
If you buying your meat at the grocery store, or eating fast food, you aren't eating real farm animals, you are eating 'factory farm' animals.
Here is where factory farm beef, pork, chickens, turkeys and milk comes from:
In a moving narration, actor and activist Alec Baldwin exposes the truth behind humanity's cruelest invention ― the factory farm.
Do you really want to eat 'factory farm' food?

I am not saying it is the best, but it is what is available around here.
Little Paco acted very timid with the prospective new 'parents', so he didn't get adopted at Adoption Day yesterday.
