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.
