I once watched a pig get shot in the back of the head, dipped in boiling hot water, skinned and gutted and then get turned into delicious bbq later that night.

Animals that are treated better taste better.

 

Therefore, I am in support of some measures. But, it's also ridiculous to expect people to pet every single cow and wait on them hand and foot before they're killed and turned into food. Wagyu beef if wagyu beef for a reason.

 

People abusing animals, or anything for that matter, suck. But, delicious animals are delicious and I'd love nice bloody ribeye with a side of bacon right about now.

Exactly, treating livestock humanely by making sure they are fed a healthy diet, raised in a relatively clean environment and exposed to minimal stress would likely benefit everyone involved in the process. 

 

Most Americans eat too much meat and dairy as it is, so a moderate increase in prices for higher quality more humanely raised livestock might encourage more people to adopt better eating habits as well.

Many healthy options and meats in general are already priced out of lower socio-economic groups though. Someone in a higher income bracket already has the ability to buy local, organic, farm raised, etc. A pack of bacon, carton of eggs, and gallon of milk will run what, at least 10-12 bucks these days?  Raise that to 13-15 bucks for example.  Not to mention the time in cooking it. For that same price, you could get 12-13 mystery meat sausage biscuits at the local fast food place. Raise prices even more, and more kids will be fed the value menu at McDonalds than already are IMO.

Everyone loses their mind over a single lion being killed and then trots over to a fast food chain to dine on their outrage. I remember this conversation going differently in another thread

My youngest just turned 6 and came to me and his mom with a simple request: he didn't want to eat meat anymore. When we asked him why he stated he doesn't want the animals to hurt. I was incredibly proud of his decision. So far he's done pretty good with it.
