Farmers’ Moral Dilemma
Because consumers are getting
informed about how animals raised for food are treated in factory
farms, farmers have to deal with the moral dilemma of animal
exploitation for the sake of taste and profit.
However, the ethical
relativism of our culture is so prevalent that as Wes Jamison,
University of Florida public relations researcher and professor,
said "Most consumers are profound hypocrites,"... "They want to have
their meat and take it to the vet, too."
In fact, Jamison goes a step
further and suggests farmers to take a stand by saying, "We need to
reassert our right as agriculturalists and say we're proud of what
we do. We need to say 'You know what? It takes the death of
something for you to live, and we are unashamed.'"

Farmers face dilemma: Animals as meat or pets?
are slowly waking up to the truth: healthy animals are exploited and
killed for the sake of humanity’s taste buds, while others, such as
pets, are treated like family and will even get presents this
Christmas. This moral dilemma is not only faced by farmers, but by
every human who must decide to support the exploitation of God’s
animals or choose a compassionate and peaceful plant-based diet.
