I've been reading "Slaughterhouse: The Shocking Story of Greed, Neglect, and Inhumane Treatment Inside the Meat Industry". I can see why some people turn vegetarian. This book is about current conditions. The USDA is useless. The government is useless. Everybody turns his head while people and animals suffer atrocities in these places. Someone asked me, "Why would you read a book like that?"
"Because I want to know what might end up on my table," I answered.
Today I am very thankful for our forty-plus acres and for Bonnie-the-Jersey-cow, who provides us with both milk and meat.
