With regards to farming animals for meat.
Why did we ever start killing them? Time kills everything and in the most peaceful way possible, if we would look after the animals and care for them. Let them live a full life in a good environment we would still have meat at the end. Death is a natural event, we make is come sooner then it should because we are greedy.
I think farms should change to this way of life. Animals are only eaten when they die of old age. This also ensures that they are treated the best way possible. And sorry but your steak doesn’t need to be butter soft.
