Thread Name: Should UK farmers be qualified
Subject: RE: Should UK farmers be qualified
Who is at fault?
The feed companies that think it's OK to grind up the remains of animals and add it to the feed of vegetarian livestock. And the government that let them do it.
The feed companies that add antibiotics to animal feed as a matter of course, thus rendering them useless in the long term to fight infections in stock and people. And the government that let them do it.
I won't even mention the hormone additives that get into the water table and make the fish change sex.
Any one who treats farming purely as an industry, maltreating animals and birds in the name of cheap food, poisoning the land and water in the process.
