Y’all: so the Caped Crusader and I tossed in an application for some government dollars that could help me get seriously hurt less. That is, your Provincial Government has a sweet l’il program wherein Meat Processors such as ourselves can get some matching money to enhance our Animal Welfare equipment.
- pens that can’t slam into my face as much,
- a crowding tub that would allow animals to go in walking forward EVERY time rather than all 2000lbs willy nilly,
- segregated area for HUMAN BEINGS so as you’re never standing in the direct Kill Zone of a wildenated Beef,
- fewer weekly beatings for the operator(s) (as above, mentioned again for emphasis)
It’s a big deal. And when it’s done, I think we’re going to have a party to which you’ll totally be invited. Also we’ll invite Temple Grandin, but I don’t think she’ll show. I’m guessing there will be some slow-roasted beast. Let me know when works for you, okay? Oh, and BYOB – I like Sleeman’s.
