Apparently, some people on here need to watch some documentaries about the lives of conventional feed-lot cows, prior to their (merciful) slaughters.
People forget that even animals raised for "food" are, at least at one point, living beings that also endure pain and stress.
There is nothing acceptable about feeding an animal food its body is not designed to eat, keeping it confined so tightly it can barely stand, and depriving it of its basic instincts to walk around outdoors.
They are not just products, and resources. They're sentient beings.
It's bad enough to be born just to die. At least let that creature have some dignity, some room to make the most of its limited days.
