I think that only one of Cargills slaughter houses uses her methods. And Temple said in one of her books that she felt bad about building something to send animals to their death. But more or less that if it is going to happen, it would help their state of mind. Another reason for this is to benefit humans because the hormones that produce fear in the animals remain in the slaughtered meat.....believe me, I don't agree with any kind of slaughter. I don't think we have the right to say what another beings life is here for...I mean to serve us.I find it very egotistical. when people saysomething to me about that's what they're here for, I just tell them that someone forgot to tell the cows that. (I live in Kansas...a lot of cattle people here). I better get off this subject...because it is a big issue with me and I could go on and on..Ok Done!!
