IT IS SATURDAY AND I AM WORKING

But I just convinced staff to take in a sheep, so that's good. She's a 5-mos old Suffolk from a FFA project. Girl will never ever do a FFA project ever again. Damn straight, I say.

FFA FOR THE LOSE!

Future Farmers of America. It's a high school program that has kids caring for animals and then sending them off to slaughter.

My high school was involved in that program; I was sad that I never got involved. I understand your objections, but I think anyone who plans to continue eating meat should be obliged to participate in the process.

If people wish to know who their food comes from, then they should be permitted access to those facilities that breed, raise, transport and slaughter animals.

It would be disingenuous to argue FFA/4-H emulates current agricultural practices. Nearly 100% of the 10 billion land animals slaughtered come from large-scale production operations and are killed in high output processing facilities, not from your school's local farm or small butcher.

I agree completely on both counts.

I also wish that animal agriculture would revert back to small scale non-industrial farms.

Ok, this is completely off topic, but your icon makes me *squee!*
