seems fine to me. the animals look healthy, they can lie down, well fed. compare them to the way chickens live and see what you think. one thing people just dont get is, you want to eat meat but you dont want to see how it's raised or butchered. grow up people. if we free range everything, meat will be 10X more expensive and the supply will be greatly limited. dont whine when your mcdonalds hamburger costs $5.00 instead of 69 cents.

Typical terrorist actions by Marcy for Animals. Do as we say or we will attempt to sway public opinion by publishing film of something we don't like.

More HSUS MFA bull hoohy! Hey, you guys lost in your efforts to put an issue on the ballot, took false hope in "a letter" and now you are upset? I never could understand how anyone could stand back and film a crime (become an accomplice to it), incite illegal acts (become an accomplice to it) then use it to promote the cause. Either you are against it - and therefor you stop it - or you use it like terrorist use beheading videos; simply to outrage people.

Grow up, take responsibility for your actions and stop being an accomplice to illegal actions.

Oh, BTW ... how is that hiring Michael Vick thing working out for your buddies HSUS?

Why would free range meat be more expense? That seems like propaganda. However confining anything to a crate and chaining it seems mean. I don't eat veal. My Grandparents were farmers and I do know the difference between an animal that is treated well and this corporate farming cruelty. The meat is bad... it is unhealthy.

People should have to know how to butcher and slaughter every animal they eat. Even if you buy 99% of it at Kroger, you should have to have done it once yourself before you're allowed to eat it or buy it. Once you've done that, fine. But until then, you haven't really earned it. You've just paid someone else to take the life of another living thing so you can eat it. That's cheating.

Maybe if that were the rule, there would be a lot more vegetarians amongst us.

(oh and sidenote -- you environmentalists probably know that one of the easiest ways to help the environment is to become a vegetarian. The amount of water and energy and cleared land it takes to raise farm animals -- and the pollution they create -- are horrible. Better to be a vegetarian and drive a Hummer than be a meat-eater and drive a hybrid car, I think I read somewhere once.)

animal rights groups should be banned/illegal all they are not so different from terrorist organizations like al qaeda they use doctored images to sway the opinion of those who are not involved in the agricultural community

Farming practices exploit and hurt animals. The truth is coming out. Especially what they do in Ohio.

Do we want affordable food? Yes. But if we have to, we'll grow our own.

More and more people are raising chickens instead of paying farmers to torture them. If they can't raise their own chickens, they buy their eggs from people who produce eggs without torturing the chickens.

In time, the old cheap exploitive practices will be pushed out.

Evidence of change:

Who ever expected people would recyle their trash? Now we do.

Who ever expected people would ban smoking in public places, especially bars? Now we do.

The times are changing, get on board, or fade away.

a good question for vegans and animal rights activists is this... how do your veggies feel when they are picked chopped peeled boiled or steamed and then eaten? plants are living organisms just like animals how is it any different?

Yes, animals are to eat, but if they are being abused that is wrong.

I won't eat veal. It is sick to treat a calf like that, not to mention eating a baby. A calf deserves better than that.

In the video, I wasn't alarmed; the animals looked like they were being treated fine. They could line down and move a little. The facility looked clean. The calves were chained, but maybe that is safer then having them bounce around. It did make me sad that they reeled back in fear, and that they are separated from their mothers. I don't know much about farming, but then again a lot of these animal rights fanatics don't either. There are better ways of producing meats, but this is not a hobby. A farmer produces animals to make an income, not to be evil. They have to eat too, and by creating unrealistic regulations, these activists have taken the farmers' incomes.

Did it look like the video was filmed through this James Bond wannabe's fly? Wow,the farmers needed to tell him his "barn door was open" then maybe we wouldn't be privy to compelling video's like this. The only humans that have a right to complain about animal welfare are the one's that have never eaten meat. Otherwise you are as guilty as everyone else and deal with it.

Here's a thought rob, how if and I know this is an if that is far fatched, but bear with me a moment.. What if humans became food for another race and you ere kept confined shackled down for your life, fed a low iron diet (which iron helps carry oxygen through a humans as well as an animals blood through the body. Which in turn rob helps tissue perfusion and repair.. Low iron means issues) until you were killed.

Now rob how can you justify logically the supply would be so limited? Price causing such? Why rob drugs are massively expensive (meaning pot, cocain, and so forth), but it's readily available to many despite very high prices..

And yes meat prices would go up some to have the animals roam some, but funny rob, oh a hunred years ago cattle roamed free range and the prices weren't 10x higher then were they..

Anyhow rob point being cruelty to animals whether small or large is a negative sign of how people are in that society. And if I have to pay a little more for meat to have them treated humanely, why so beit I can pay a little more..
thinking so much about a little extra out of your pocket rob causes you grief, but rob why not complain more about gas prices that lets see 1998 were around 80 cents a gallon, even before presidential elections were around 1 $1.79 a gallon, but for some reason are now still around $2.70 a gallon give or take..

Oh but wait rob complain about price that in 1969 minimum wage was around a $1 an hour, and the AFL championship ticket cost to sit any where was a whopping $12.00 Meaning rob, a person making minimum wage in 1969 could work less than three days to afford a ticket to see what amounts to the super bowl, parking, and some food at the game was affordable to a minimum wage worker in less than three days pay.. Now a minimum wage worker can't even afford a ticket in the absolute nose bleeds or any where for that matter on three days wages..

Just better things you could be complaining about rob, than spending a few dollars more to have decent treatment of animals..

thats not really true at all...i mean back when we were just cave men we hunted and killed for meat...it was natural for us..it was how to survive, so the vegetarian comment is just not true...now production in bulk so that resturants can trow it out when it expires and fat people can get fat quicker is wrong....but if familys lived and worked for there selfs like they did back in the day then a farm wouldnt harm the environment all to much and if cars were replaced by horse and foot power then the harm the cost of liveing caused the environment wouldnt do any thing to effect the earth at all....i agree with u in some spots but god gave us the k9 teeth for a reson and it isnt to grind lettuce
