Notice

I really hope Ballanorman Arthur hasn't noticed the notice on his pen...

I find it doesn't bother me - I guess from a childhood with a lot of farming relatives where the link between the bullocks in the field and the meat on the plate a few months later was always made fairly clear. Along with the knowledge that there would be no sense in beef cattle existing if there was no need for beef.

But Arthur, in the picture, is actually from that farm's Angora herd and so bred for his coat rather than goat-burgers :)
Arthur is a handsome specimen of the breed, and I'm glad to know that his life will be a long and happy one.

I grew up on a sheep farm, so I was fully aware of the origin of the meat on my plate, and I even watched my father slaughter and cut them up for the table, but it was only when I was older that I started to question the morality of eating another living being. However I still eat meat, as my body seems to need it. I hate to say that my favourite is lamb, even though i have great affection for the sweet creatures.
