  • In Defense of the Family Rancher

    Really well written blog by one person passionate about making a difference in our broken food system. With a suggestion for how to fix it.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    Thank you for posting that. She writes passionately and well.

    Calves enter the feedlot system at around six months old to 1.5 years old and are fed corn and soy and heaven knows what else, and are injected with Zilmax and antibiotics and heaven knows what else, and then become beef for the consumer market at around two years old. The animals are big enough, by then, but there’s another reason – they will die from liver failure after two years in a feedlot, because what they are fed is so contrary to their physiology.

    Mike’s oldest cow, fed only grass, is 21 years old. Cattle fed in a feedlot will die within two years. There’s something terribly, terribly wrong with this picture.
    That really hit home. My decision to eat no more factory animals will be easy to keep, even if I occasionally wince when I remember how cheap they are. I don't want sick animals as my food source.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      That's my goal too. We are almost all the way there.

        Me too. Let's keep refining it and bringing others on board. The fate of the planet depends on it.
