    Yup, done it myself.

    I have seen many kids who don't know where meat or food in general come from,
    they believe all is produced in the store Where are this world going?...

    I have never slaughtered an animal but think I could. I would rather have a friend who knows what they are doing do the butchering though. My three year old knows that our roast beef comes from cows but has never seen pictures of a slaughterhouse.

    And I love bison and beefalo(hibred) as well as venison and rabbit.

    Yes, I could. Especially now that I have kids, I have an instinct now that would make me do anything for them and their well-being, even if it meant to kill "moo-cow"

    I grew up on a farm in a very rural portion of southeastern Indiana. There were numerous times when either by myself or helping someone else that I slaughtered animals for food and then processed/cured the meat. These farm animals included cattle, pigs, and chickens. We also hunted squirrels, rabbit, duck, and quail. Believe it or not, I've eaten groundhog, which makes a good, though somewhat slightly greasy, stew with potatoes and carrots.

    Could you slaughter your own meat ?

    I don't know how, but, if it were necessary, I could learn to. I've made steak-and-kidney pie, Ever cut up a kidney ? MESSY.

    We humans have the teeth of omnivores. They are unspecialised and, therefore, equally ill-suited for vegetation and meat. Mankind ate meat, whenever they could get it, for at least several tens of thousands of years before anyone tried to live on an exclusively vegetable diet.

    Those who have tried to do so, such as some canyon-dwelling tribes of Native Americans who had been driven out of their hunting grounds, did not flourish. (There's an old joke: "Vegetarian" : old Native American word for "bad hunter".)

    On moral grounds, related to the cruelty of slaughtering as it's usually practised, and to the conditions under which some meat aniumals, such as calves for veal, are raised, I would prefer to be a vegetarian, or at least a vegan.

    I actually tried to adopt a vegetarian diet in the 70's. I did not flourish either. I had no energy and felt weak. I suspect that my body had become so accustomed to meat after about 40 years on a carnivorous diet, that it could not adapt to the change.

    I wonder how long it took the early Hindus to adapt to a vegetarian diet after having been meat-eaters in Vedic times ? I'm sure it didn't take place overnight. Even today, I have found that formerly devout Hindus who have adopted a meat diet ("When in Rome do as the Romans do.") are loth to give it up.

    I don't eat veal because I've seen the way those poor critters are treated and I won't support such cruelty. Please don't tell me similar horror stories about other meat animals. I don't want to starve.

    BTW, I have eaten bison, venison, moose, and bear. The latter two are strictly a stunt. Moose is very gamey and bear tastes like liver and is as tough as well-tanned shoe-sole leather. Bison and venison are both great eating.

    The wild meats vary so much. You obviously didn't have bear from the blueberry season!

    So, I want to straighten something out. The actual modern method of killing animals in the first world is very humane. They have all sorts of shoots and gizmo's to make it stress free and quick for the animal. I'm sure there are exceptions and there is always the occasional accident but my ex worked in a slaughter house for awhile and it's very quick and the beeves never know what's coming. He said the "knocker" (the person who wields the "gun" that does the killing) very very rarely ever missed and if they did he was ostracized. The rules are actually quite strict.


    It's all the other parts of their lives, health, and diet that I have objections to!

    Actually, I Did. And, I grew up on a farm, having much the Same Experiences you did, In Franklin Co. IN. I presently live in SW Indiana., on a small farm.

    I've slaughtered, and helped with slaughtering, many Critters also. We raised rabbits, for slaughter, too, a few. I've helped as well with slaughtering Lambs.
    Yumm, I love roasted Lamb.
    We had cattle, chickens, pigs, & ducks, a few sheep and a few rabbits.
    We had a neighbor who was a "Coon hunter". I ate racoon at his home a few times. I've killed many young groundhogs, for the "table".
    I was an avid hunter growing up.
    Now, mostly too old , fat & lazy, Hunnh.

    But, when the rubber meets the Road, I am NOT going hungry.
    Most of us will do "what needs to be Done".
