Hello all, first if this has already been covered, I apologise, and would appreciate a point in the direction of any relevant threads.
However, whilst I can have some understanding of those who choose to be vegetarian, I have a bit of struggle with people who adopt a vegan lifestyle (actually, not very keen on the word "lifestyle", always seems a bit Sunday supplement?) especially if they are doing it because of "love of animals".
I love animals, and want those that I eat to have had a good life and a humane death. (I used to keep a 50 head flock of sheep, and they and their lambs were treated very well)
If we all adopted a totally vegan approach to food, clothes, home fabrics etc, surely many of our domestic farm animals would become of no use, and possibly endangered species!
And as for vegans objecting to the content of animal product in the new notes becoming part of our currency, what should we do?
Palm oil has been suggested, but apparently that isn't an environmentally good option.
Shall we go back to trading in beans? But what if they have been grown in land fertilised by animal manure?
Where does it actually reach a sort of semi sensible conclusion?
