I found out last week-end that Kevin and I have inherited a bunch of cattle, and our brother Mike and his son Dee want to buy them from us. Now I am starting to feel very sorry for the cattle because they are much nicer than my brother Mike and his son. I will probably not eat any beef again for a long time, but I do not know what else to do with the cattle except sell them, but it still makes me very sad to think about them. The cattle are innocent, but my brother Mike & son are definitely not.
The cows have been treated fairly well, however, and are grass fed and hormone free. They also have not been fed expensive grain, which has better uses than cattle feed. I might feel differently about the cattle if I had never met them.
Can you cook and eat cows that you have met personally?
