KEEP IN MIND THIS IN NOT A DEBATE ABOUT BEING PRO OR AGAINST SLAUGHTER!!! There are already tons of that on the web let alone in this forum. But what I don't see is an actual thread dedicated to coming up with realistic/reasonable ideas to make this industry as humane and efficient and profitable as possible. (profitable in the sense it should pay for itself and be privately run with no help of the government) enless you have ideas or reasons to think tax payers should contribute.
The discussion should range from transportation, housing/buildings, the actual confinement when it is time, where the meat should be stored, how it should be stored, holding pens, where is the meat market demand for this product, is there a way to use it in the U.S.A, is there logical reasons why we shouldn't have a plant in the USA since there are still US horses being slaughtered outside our borders, etc etc.. as you see anything counts as long as it pertains to equine slaughter.
Anything that relates to slaughter to make it "better" (the word used lightly)
Keep it friendly and educational as well. I will also be using this info for a research paper I am writing. So this info would be greatly appreciated along with reasons why you think it would work would also be beneficial.
