This is MAD.
painfree-animals-could-take-suffering-out-of-farming

why not just NOT farm them in such a way that they feel pain?

why not just eat a little less meat?

the pakistani kid who jumped off the roof probably did so cos he was sick to death of being a total freakshow!

Why is that? Farm animals are already profoundly altered in ways that make them more apt to be farmed. This seems like a logical next step. :)

I agree, selective breeding has been practised for probably thousands of years for our benefit why not use it to benefit our meals while they are alive?

Although, the prospect of zombie cows ravaging a post-apocalyptic wasteland does seem likely if this goes ahead. :eh:

if we're not supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?

thats what i've always thought too...

how would you contain animals that cant feel the pain of barbed wire or electric shocks? you'd have to spend way way more on your infrastructure, eating into the profits you're supposedly getting by farming in a 'painful' manner.

like you say. bigger guns.
