Do People Really Not Care About Animal Welfare?

It's like every time that there's a post about free range eggs//barn eggs or British bacon or Danish there's a lot of hate going around. Does it matter to you?

My personal view is that i think whenever i can, i buy food which is animal friendly (that doesn't really make sense, there gunna die so i can eat them but you get it!).
Free range eggs is all i get. But when they babble on on the tv about chicken and stuff being cheap even if it is freedom food endourced, it's not. It's really expensive.
#2
It does to me. I refuse to buy eggs etc that aren't free range. Even if they cost a few pence more, it won't break the bank.

I know what you mean with the eggs, definately. But like chicken breasts. You can get about 7 for the price of 2 freedom food ones. It's a bit silly!

I only buy free range eggs, chicken etc :)

free range isnt just a few pence extra, and for those with a large familt free range is very expensive

With chicken etc, there is nowhere near me that sells it fredom endorsed but when I do have the option I go for the cruelty free option. Organic seems a bit too hyped and expensive imo.
#7
I just have freerange eggs, but i think its stupid that people are prepared to eat 'smartprice/value' chicken but have to have freerange eggs lol.

Apart from that im not into all that organic stuff as i think its more money for something i cant notice any difference.
#8
I guess I'm really suggestible cos I think about those poor chickens living in cages all their lives just to pop out eggs or grow large enough for us to feed on... and I just can't do it.

I understand precisely why someone needs to buy the cheaper option of food, of course I do, I have four kiddies living at home... I dunno... I'm just soft I spose x x
#9
Is it just me or does free range/organic actually taste better anyway?

That's the reason why we buy it, although the recent documentary on Danish bacon/pork has gotten us buying British bacon exclusively....

i had some organic bananas and they where horrid, suppose we get used to how food tastes, although we have some fresh eggs occasionally and they are lush, when my son 1st had them fresh he said wow mum i didnt know you could cook so good, they where boiled eggs, he has boiled eggs alot but he knows the difference

A friend of mine brought a large 'value' pack of eggs from Tesco as part of a group breakfast. Anyway, I was cooking even though I wasn't eating the eggs. The yolks were greenish and when they were scrambled they were like greenish rubber and stank. They were something like 15 for £1.50. Revolting.

That's what you get for stealing. Next time, just BUY them instead of BRINGING them... :roll:

It's called the food chain.

You don't see leopards having second thoughts about eating antelope.

Meat is good for you, tree hugging less so.

Makes no odds, they're not crippled by 'morality issues'. If they need to eat, they eat. Chuck a free range and a caged chicken in with a leopard, it'll eat both without a second thought.

Yeah, those eggs sounded like they were off. Interestingly, both free range and caged eggs can both go off.

I don't particularly care about animal welfare. I think that human welfare should be a priority and then we can start to worry about animals. I've always found it odd that someone would give money to an animal charity over a charity that would help kids. Maybe they feel a greater affinity for animals.

But so long as animals meet safety standards and are tasty, I don't particularly care how they're treated. They're only animals (which will be met by 'so are we', but let's just agree that we're the only animals that are having this discussion and make a distinction along those lines).

I agree that the rights of human beings should take priority over the rights of animals.

I do care how animals are treated though. Animals who are reared for us to eat, should be treated well. Animals who function as pets or companions should be treated well. I wouldn't wanna know anyone who could abuse an animal.

My youngest contracted salmonella when he was 3 and although it couldnt be proven I believe it was from smart price eggs at Asda. He was hospitalised and very ill for a quite a while and since then started buying free range eggs. I know that any egg can contain salmonella be it free range or battery but it just made me feel better ( i know that doesnt make sense, it just did :) )
Im lucky to be in a position financially that I can purchase all my meat and eggs from a local farm shop where everything is locally reared/sourced, but if i wasnt financially able TBH I wouldnt give a rats ass where the meat came from as long as it was affordable.

And that's why a lot of people probably go for free range. It's not wrong or right, it's just a different view or 'morality'.

There's also a case that if someone has spent more on free range or more expensive food then they will consciously or unconsciously convince themselves that it tastes better.

Leopards also don't drive cars, cut down trees and pollute the earth.

Leopards have never cured a disease, donated blood or helped an old lady cross the road.

not eating meat is NOT better for your health at all and its been scientifically proven, what other purpose do chickens, pigs n cows serve exactly?


also organic food does taste better if you have any kind of pallette

mmmn but you dont see leopards injecting loads of water and other stuff into their meat before eating it do you. Think at the very least that practice should be banned. I also dont like buying mince unless I know what has gone into it. I dont necessarily buy organic as the cost differential is wide but I can say that the best chicken I ever tasted was one that was on the plate a couple of hours after it was running in a yard. No I didnt do the deed. There is a major difference in taste

And its not all about wanting to cuddle animals before we eat them. The way we rear them may have very direct consequences for human health. I am not crusading here but it doesnt hurt to be informed

When I said about the leopards I was trying to get across that you can't really compare us (humans) to leopards. They really HAVE to eat meat ...we don't HAVE to and I choose NOT to.

Some people do have to - how else can we get enough protein? There's only so much whey protein I can consume every day.

looooooooool, haven't seen any in my local supermarket, but if I did I'd have to opt for the free-range:thumbsup:


I think you'd be hard pushed to find a battery leopard anyway!!! :-D
