Gee, I thought my comment was self-explanatory. Your threads are fun and hijackable.

Chuck, as to kregski, yes, it's an "in" joke. In chat, kregski mentioned he had had veal on his trip here. Nonie and I both had a total hissy fit. I understand kregski is making jokes when he keeps mentioning veal in his posts, but as Ralph would say, "To the moon, kregski, to the moon!"

(And no comment on the BMs ... the imagery is just too yucky.)

Nonie:

Maybe this might help:

According to Wikipedia the animals are given special care and treatment to raise them for market. Without the special care and treatment most of them would die from disease and abuse from older animals. Veal has been an important ingredient in Italian and French cuisine since ancient times.

Chuck,
Wikipedia does not define "special care and treatment". Its widely known that the treatment has historically been inhumane. I have seen first hand how the babies are treated. Here is a link that explains the definition of "special care and treatment"

It might help to remember that Wikipedia does not guarantee the accuracy of anything posted there -- everything is the opinion of the poster. Therefore, "special care and treatment" could be having neck stretched while being force fed as geese are for pate or put in a crate where a calf can neither lie down nor turn around so that the "meat" (aka veal) is tender.

If you don't eat veal because of the inhumane treatment then perhaps you should become a vegan. Is there such a thing as humane treatment to any animal raised for human consumption?

Nonie

I understand Brightspot's post about all animals raised for human consumption and that perhaps we should consider becoming vegans. However at least cows do get some time to be cows before their awful demise!

I've always felt I should be a vegetarian but lacked the will power and was drawn to the smell of BBQs. Recently I realized that I can take "baby steps" and give up just one meat at a time. I've never eaten veal, lamb or bambi. I gave up eating beef six months ago, and now have almost completely given up pork. Small steps, but I'll get there eventually.

Gotta go, my dinner of cornish hens is ready. Yes, I know they suffer also, but this Vegan thing takes a while.

Barefoot.

These calves are never allowed to roam and play the way their instincts tell them too. I feel this is definitely one of the worst forms of cruelty in the "raised for human consumption" chain.
