Now if you can’t understand that then that’s your problem not mine
If I can’t understand you’re some sort of fictional robotic character capable of the above ?

Well I’m afraid I don’t believe that.

And if you’re human then I also don’t believe the above.

I hear smug blowhards complaining about pushy vegans one hundred times as often as I encounter pushy vegans. Every vegan I have met in person has been a lovely person, and every single person I have met who felt the need to complain about vegans has been unbearable.

Not really a realistic viewpoint is it tbh? Humans are humans - there's all types of eejits in every walk of life

This from a previous posters comment which I think about covers it ...

Quote:
I’ve a problem with extremist vegan groups, your average vegan is of no interest to me, they’re just doing their own thing which is what we all have a right to do without abuse or ridicule or anybody trying to take our choices away from us.
The OP explained that they were been baraged on social media - hence the thread. They don't come across as a 'smug blowhard' (sic) by any means imo.

I don't believe the OP was referring to the 'average ' person here tbh and that's the point. Suggesting that any criticism somehow makes a person 'unbearable' is daft. It also seems to suggest that no matter what - no criticism is permitted else the risk being labelled and accused of being "smug blowhards" or words to that effect...

I'm laughing at the idea you think you even know where your meat is coming from.
My meat comes straight from the field because I’m the one pulling the trigger as it’s about to eat it’s last meal.
Try again princess

Far more animals are killed to produce vegan food, but we dont talk about that.

No point in being jealous. I don’t miss. Simple as that. Because I find myself rarely able to take the shot unless it’s safe or definite kill. Like every respectful hunter you don’t shoot unless it’s on.
Aim small miss small

The worms will have a field day with you. They're licking their lips, watching your every move.

Just on what animals including beef cattle are fed in this country. Grazing and fodder make up the bulk of what is fed to cattle - over and above this is mostly supplementary type feed. Now for those getting wet thinking about all the 'grain and soy ' fed to cattle - the fact is the bulk of that is made up of by-products or waste from human food production..

This from the FAO.

The "study determines that 86% of livestock feed is not suitable for human consumption. If not consumed by livestock, crop residues and by-products could quickly become an environmental burden as the human population grows and consumes more and more processed food."

http://www.fao.org/ag/againfo/home/e...Food_Feed.html

And that also goes for all that soy grown. The soy used in animal feed is largely derived from the primary processing of soy beans for soya oil. After the oil is extracted , what is left over is processed into animal feeds - this includes the outer shell of the soy bean called the husk and the pulp or 'meal' from which the oil has been extracted.

So there it is - all of the soy grown in south America for the primary extraction of soya oil of which afaik the processed food industry and China are the biggest users. If the left over meal wasnt been fed to cattle and other animals - they'd be most likely land spreading it as waste somewhere ...

Short version: Cattle eat grass. Humans cannot eat grass. This is good because grass grows exceptionally well in this country where many crops would struggle to grow commercially. Most of the rest of what cattle eat are the leftovers of the human food industry.
