Comparison Between Biological Farms in the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Latvia
Almost every single day our world gains a vegetarian. Most people become a vegetarian out of respect for our animals, some because just don’t like meat.
But we live in a world where meat is consumed on a daily basis and in large quantities. A world where chickens spend their entire life in a room the size of an A4 piece of paper and where calves are held in boxes from 0.71 x 0.31 inch in which they can barely move. Every year over 15 million chicks die due to rapid growth.
So what can you do if you’re not a vegetarian? For starters you could buy biological (organic) food. But what does this mean?
Think about what you put into your mouth : put the logic in biologic!
• Better for the environment. Biological manure can be recycled instead of regular manure getting dumped in our lakes.
• More humane for animals. The animals at biological farms have a better life, they can move around freely, get outside and eat proper food.
• Healthier. Biological farms do not use fertilizers, chemical supplies or gene technology, so the meat you are buying is actually better for your own health! Just think about mad cow disease or salmonella; these are serious issues.
• Tastier, due to proper feeding.
