1. Anyone who's ever driven by a feed lot in August will appreciate this

but cattle have pretty much the best deal, able to roam relatively free for a couple of years before being hauled off for "finishing" by having nothing to do while packed in a fenced area with a lot of other cattle, standing ankle deep in their own waste, and eating food they were never meant to eat to build up a lot of unhealthy fat in their muscles. At least they get time to be cattle.

Not so our other meat animals living their entire lives in factory conditions.

I very much look forward to the day when most of our meat is produced in trays, not by living creatures with the capacity to suffer. Soups are going to be a challenge, though.
