Just read this article from the Palladium-Times, Residents protest Bion proposal at Legislature meeting.
I don’t really know what to say about it, except that the use of the term “cattle finishing” is pretty 1984ish. Are they referring to a feedlot or to the slaughterhouse element, or both? Either way, it seems fake and gross to use this term in regard to the lives of sentient beings.
Thanks to the folks who are showing up at these meetings in protest. Please send a letter to your local legislators to ask that this project be denied, it sounds like a nightmare for the cows as well as an unsound business decision for the region.
If you’re interested in the role played by our economy, and capitalism generally, in the exploitation of animals, read Making A Killing: The Political Economy of Animal Rights by Bob Torres. Fantastic book!
