Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Cathy Phillips - 12 Dec 2005
While I completely agree with your position on commercial livestock raising and inhumane treatment, I also believe a reasonable alternative is heritage breeds raised in natural, small farm settings, as is being done all over the world.
These small farms and the raising of livestock is completely necessary in order to keep these heirloom breeds, with many irreplaceable traits and qualities, from becoming extinct.
I respect your promotion of the vegan lifestyle as a choice, but think you be doing the world a favor by using your platform to inform the world that there are responsible livestock raisers that love their critters and are working to preserve very valuable animal varieties.

Thank you for writing.
We would really like to find a truly humane small farm that raises animals for food, but we haven't found any. Most send their animals to the same slaughter houses. We never found anyone who puts the animals to sleep before killing them. We also uncovered a lot of cruelty on small farms, particularly dairy farms.
If you have any information on humanely farmed animals, we'd like to hear about it.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
