Theres nothing glamourus or pretty about slaughter never has been and never will be. But the whole idea that it should be banned is lost on me. I suppose if your a control freak and don't want someone else eating things you don't eat you'd want something banned but I can't get into the whole deal about controling what species of livestock someone else likes for dinner. I think all slaughter should be done humanly and certainly regulated. But banned?

I have sent allot of cattle to a slaughter house and have never loaded more than 40 head on a trailer. They were finished steers and heifers each weighing between 1000 lbs and 1400 lbs.

Atleast if it was run in America, we know the public eye does not stand for indecency and it would be regulated!
I agree with you allot of this subject, some horses for whatever are too dangerous for any use and to other horses

I am a very real genuine animal lover. But I understand the line between humans and livestock. I would never wish ill on any human. That judgement is far beyond my station in life.
allot of people seem to have a problem with that theseday and if it is in Mexico over of my sight out of my mind. right or wrong

18 hours in a trailer, that is amazing. I can think of very few reason to haul stock for that long. most people advice on long hauls (for horses) allow them off the trailer every 6 hours to stretch their legs. In humane slaughter can happpen when things go wrong and that can happen when the person doing it misses up or the animal is not in the extract right place. Guess what, that can happen if the animal is put down for any reason or by any means.

Any time any animal is used for meat or for any use for that matter. it use for treated as humanely as possible. and the species of the animal doesn't matter. You will get a better result form it I have no doubt of that.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
