  • Yes, well I try to anyway. Animals that are kept in better conditions are healthier and honestly, taste better.
  • Yes. I want them to be tortured, and killed in the most brutal way possible. >_> Serious answer: I try to eat free range cattle whenever I can, but not because I want the animals to live well, I just want to avoid additives in my food as much as possible. Farmed animals exist for the sole purpose of eating. I am actually against eating hunted animals (except in survival situations) for that reason- they weren't "meant" to be food. As a matter of interest- vegetarians actually kill MORE animals than those who eat free range meat, because of all the rabbits/field mice/etc killed in the harvesting of vegetables.
  • Nope, I don't care XDDD as long as I get mah meat, milk, and deviled eggs, im a okay
  • Not really they are called food for a reason if they weren't food they would be pets...Ok while writing this I realized that I don't want them kept in disgusting conditions or beaten. I know it's a little cold but what do you think would happen to us if chickens were on the top of the food chain?
  • Honestly? Really honestly? Nope not really.
  • Yeah I don't want nastiness in mah food =D
  • Yes. I only buy free-range eggs and chicken meat. I don't try so hard with other meats yet, both because the treatment is not quite so vile and the labeling is not there yet. But I take the view of start with the worst and move on. When we have ended battery farms, move on to the next.
  • I don't make any effort to verify where my meat came from.
  • as long as there's no poison being pumped into them so it affects me - no.
  • I guess not, or I wouldn't consume them.
  • Very much so. We used to even raise nearly all of our own animal products. We had meat animals and dairy goats. I made my own butter and cheeses. We had chickens and other fowl. Plus we raised all our veggies and about half of our fruits. It really mattered to us how our animals were raised, what they ate, did they have a happy life, and how were they butchered. It just seemed like the responsible thing to do, instead of just blindly grabbing another tray of meat from the store.
  • A little bit. I like animals. They taste good too. But that's why I'm happy to be at the top of the food chain.
  • I'm not all that worried about it..... as long as they are taken care of well enough to ensure the safety of the food I don't care.
  • Yes, I try, whenever possible, to eat only meat and dairy products from free-range, non-hormone-injected, organically-fed livestock. I admit, though, that realistically for myself and my budget, this is not always possible.
  • Yes, I do.
  • Yeah, but not enough to bother me yo...
  • No. I have no problem with humans killing animals for consumption, what bothers me is how excessive it is, and how much of the animals we waste, and how we make coats and purses out of them. Not so much out of sympathy for the life of an animal, but because killing animals so fast ruins the ecology, and as a heartless and selfish human being, I realize that the ecology is extremely important to OUR well being and when disturbed, it can have some significant effects on our lives, more than folks imagine. So there. I'm evil, but at least, honest about it. XD
  • i do. i love animals, and i try not to think of what im REALLY eating when im eating meat...i think its aweful to mistreat animals, especially if ppl are doing it b/c they know theyll be someones dinner soon.
  • I do. I like them to be treated humanely and with respect. I like my meat animals to be slaughtered instantly and painlessly, at least as much as possible. Even if I didn't care for humanitarian reasons, relaxed animals taste better.
  • No, so long as I get feed.
  • Yes. While we must harvest animals for food, you should also treat them humane while they are alive. We give a monetary gift to our local Humane Society of a weekly basis.
  • Of course I care about the welfare of the animals that I eat, drink milk, eggs... the healthier they are the better it tastes.
  • Yes. I'm a vegetarian, not a vegan. Obviously, I don't buy meat so that's a moot point, but I care about the conditions in which the animals are kept. I tend to buy free range eggs whenever possible and as milk goes, there's not a lot of choice here so I get what's on the shelf.
  • As I live in Ireland where animal growth promoters are illegal and cattle and dairy cows are fed mainly a grass diet (cattle are outdoors 10 months a year) and poultry are free range I haved no problem consuming milk meat and eggs. I don't like factory farming.
  • For sure! Why, if they die unhealthy, in distress, or prematurely, it means less food and poorer food for me! Call it a vested interest.
  • I know I do. I pretty much eat chicken. I always try to buy cage free stuff. I don't know if this is a mental thing or not, but to me, it tastes better.
  • Their welfare... while they are alive I would, because sick cows would not provide good food. But I would not be honest if I said I cared whether they were killed so I could eat them. I met someone from German once... we were driving in Wyoming together on his vacation and he shouted at me to stop the car. He spent a long time taking photos of the cattle grazing on the wild grasses. When I asked why, he said because their cattle are all raised in barms and they never move from in front of the feed trough. They get no exercise or fresh air, and he said there is no flavor to the meat and it is tough to chew as shoe leather. I took him out for a Wyoming steak (standard, nothing exceptional) and he said he would never again eat steak in Germany. There was no comparison for him. Do I REALLY care? Not about each individual cow. But if I saw a whole barnful being chained to a trough and never moving, I might actually feel a need to say something, make a complaint, or take some other kind of action.
  • Honestly? no I don't, as long as my food tastes good then I couldn't care less.
