Do you know how many animals die to produce vegetables, between habitat loss, use of chemicals, killing of pests, etc.?

Read the sentence you wrote with comprehension. You're making assumptions and broad sweeping statements and patting yourself on the back for doing so, all in one short sentence.

A Tale of Two Cows.

1. This cow lives in the wild. Most of her life has been spent foraging for minimal food, often on the brink of starvation. She is exposed daily to the most extreme of elements. Having had 8 calves over her 9 adult years, she has lost all but one of them to disease and predators. She now, older and feeble, is chased down by coyotes, and literally torn alive by the howling pack.

2. This cow lives in a farmer's cattle yard. When it's hot, she finds shade and cool in the loafing shed. When it's cold and snowing, she finds shelter and heat in the barn. She has lived her whole life drinking cold, clean well water and daily eating a mixed diet of grain, silage and mold-free alfalfa hay. All of her calves have survived. Now, at the end of her life, she is transported to a slaughter house where - without her having any clue what's coming - one bullet brings her life to an immediate and painless end. What happens to her carcass is, at that point, of no significance.


Now... Which one of these cows has been abused and/or lived a horrible life?

I recycle, walk or ride bicycle when I can, I use way less energy than everyone around me and feel that I'm doing my part. I am not giving up eating meat and if anyone doesn't like it I'll tell them what they can do with their carrot.
I think you totally missed the point of the reply you were agreeing with

You obviously don't know jack squat about livestock production.

YouTube - Slaughter caught on camera

Is this the kind of "immediate and painless" end you are talking about ?
