I think you said it very succinctly in reference to the
applications of industrial practices to husbandry. Good job. The only
thing I would like to add is I find it curious that cattlepeople or others
in a similar vein see nothing strange about caring and probably even liking
their herds and then killing them. I think it is bit of a shame that
especially these people who can practice such a positive interaction with
their land and animals end up having to exploit them for their own
livelihood. But I guess this is the nature of capitalism. I hope I have not
personally offended the cattlepeople but I imagine it would be difficult
for many of them not to take this personally. I apologize in advance for

I agree with your quote about abiding with nature, the question is who's
definition of abiding are we using??
