Meat is a key factor to the foundation of many humans lives but have you ever wondered how this meat gets from a farm to your plate. All over the country there are thousands of farms that treat their animals horribly keeping them in metal on metal cages and squished tight together. These animals are treated to the point of helplessness and who’s to blame for this behavior. No one. Some may say animals have no emotions and can’t feel pain but how do we know that?

The morals of our culture is that they are just animals and they don’t feel but in Michael Pollan An Animal’s Place learned helplessness is a condition in which something suffers from a traumatic event or persistent failure to succeed. It is thought to be one of the underlying causes of depression. So when those hogs are put into this small crowded pen that is covered with metal all they see is that metal. These animals suffer from traumatic events such as starvation of food, water and light which is are basic necessities of living. Bleeding in the cages from scratching against the metal.  

Joel Salatin in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, raised six different food animals such as cattle, pigs, chickens, rabbits, turkey and sheep. They lived on 550 acres of grassland where they could live naturally and in a great environment. On his farm all the animals have a certain role. They all do something that links up with another that benefits them and the farm as a whole. These animals live a happy life that consists of the opportunity to express their character. Most farmers won’t do this way of farming because it costs more money. Farmers don’t care what happens to the animals just as long as there getting paid.

No one knows what these animals are feeling because we have no way of communicating with them. These animals are put through horrifying conditions like violence, disease and starvation in these cages.

These animals suffer from traumatic events such as starvation of food, water and light which is are basic necessities of living. They also suffer from bleeding in the cages from scratching against the metal and also have disease because they allow other pigs to chew on on their tails to the point of infection because of the depression they are feeling. When these animals are feeling depressed and don’t care anymore who are we to blame for this. I believe that humans are to blame for the torture of these animals and there are other ways to raise these animals.

I thought at first that what they are animals they aren’t meant to be eaten and I still believe that but I believe that the way they are raised is an big issue and needs to stop. If they live peacefully it fine because they lived good life, like we have a chance to live well before we die so why can’t they. Humans are just a different species of animals and if we have good lives they should to. As humans we are the ones that hold the stakes for animals rights and if we’re not willing to help out and makes these animals lives better what kind of people are we. 

 

FINAL DRAFT

Meat is a key factor to the foundation of many humans’ lives, but have you ever wondered how this meat gets from a farm to your plate. animals being treated like they are nothing but meat and there not animals there more of things.  I learned from Michael Pollan’s An Animal’s Place that these animals raised for meat are put through horrifying conditions like violence, disease and starvation in these cages. All over the country there are thousands of farms that treat their animals horribly keeping them in metal on metal cages and squished tight together. These animals are treated to the point of helplessness and who’s to blame for this behavior. No one. People who raise meat or want to eat meat may say animals have no emotions and can’t feel pain but how do we know that? No one knows what these animals are feeling because we have no way of communicating with them. The animal’s wellbeing is at stake and the stakeholders are farmers, buyers from stores, Singer, Pollan like anyone who has something to do with this conversation even including me. 

The morals of our culture are they are just animals and they don’t feel but in Michael Pollan An Animal’s Place learned helplessness is a condition in which something suffers from a traumatic event or persistent failure to succeed.” As Pollan proposes it to be one of the underlying causes of depression. When those hogs are put into this small crowded pen that is covered with metal all they see is that metal. These animals suffer from traumatic events such as starvation of food, water and light which is bare necessities of living. Bleeding in the cages from scratching against the metal. Disease spreads through the cage due to pigs chewing on each other’s tails to the point of infection because of the depression they are feeling. When these animals are feeling depressed and don’t care anymore who are we to blame for this. I believe that humans are to blame for the torture of these animals and there are other ways to raise these animals.

Joel Salatin in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, raised six different food animals such as cattle, pigs, chickens, rabbits, turkey and sheep. They lived on 550 acres of grassland where they could live naturally and in a great environment. On his farm all the animals have a certain role. They all do something that links up with another that benefits them and the farm. In the article Pollan references Salatin when he comments “in an intricate dance of symbiosis designed to allow each species in Salatin’s words “to fully express its physiological distinctiveness”. These animals live a happy life that consists of the opportunity to express their character. Most farmers won’t do this way of farming because it costs more money. Farmers don’t care what happens to the animals just if they’re getting paid. The farming industry is the base of where we get all our meat, vegetables and fruits etc. For them to raise all this food it takes time, so they want to be able to cut the costs to a little as possible and a price to that is treating these animals not so great.

I thought at first that what they are animals they aren’t meant to be eaten and I still believe that, but I believe that the way they are raised is a big issue and needs to stop. If they live peacefully it fine because they lived good life, like we have a chance to live well before we die so why can’t they. Humans are just a different species of animals and if we have good lives they should to. As humans we are the ones that hold the stakes for animals’ rights and if we’re not willing to help and makes these animals lives better what kind of people are we.
