Been having phone and internet problems, hard to get on here. Must be the weather.
We eat a little meat and a lot of veg, fish too. I sort of hover about being vegetarian, but I like meat and feel some is good for you and what would happen to the excess bull calves etc if they weren't eaten. Would certain animals become extinct if we didn't use them? But I don't fancy going to an abattoir for it. Bit of a hypocrite really, I suppose. When I had a Jersey cow we did eat the bull calf, but he didn't go to the abattoir, local butcher had a licence and calf (who had a horrid temper) didn't know a thing and he'd had a happy life in the field with his mum and sister.
Hope I haven't started a debate!
