3 mama sows, 8 piglets, 3 yearlong pigs from last fall all living, eating, and sleeping in the same pasture and barn space. All of the mamas nurse each other’s piglets. It’s the most fantastic thing happening on the farm right now...it mostly makes up for the slippy, slidey mud that is ev.er.y.where right now.
Nice day in Egersund yesterday 🎅🏻🌲 #piglets
My intention is to start making a post every Monday about #mindfuleating
. The goal is not to convince anyone to switching diets or to shame a anyone . It's to share the knowledge I've learned over this last year about the food we eat and how it gets from wherever it comes from to our bodies.
I believe that the more we know about the food that is going into our body the deeper connection we will have with the energy inside of us.
This week I'm focusing on the age of meat products that we eat. Veal and baby back ribs are not the only baby meat products commonly eaten. As a matter of fact, most meat would be considered a baby or child.
It only makes sense that the animals do not live long lives. In order to produce the amount of meat we need and to stay profitable, there must be a quick turn around on the product. Slaughtering at a young age also keeps the meat more tender and lowers the chance of the animal catching a disease that would render it useless for human consumption.
The youngest animal killed is not veal but a Male chicken. Since they cannot produce eggs they are generally slaughtered the day they are born.
I promise this is not propaganda I have no agenda just sharing things that I wish I knew before a year ago. If you want to know more or verify just Google "age of meat when slaughtered" or "best age animal meat ". As I continue doing this every Monday it won't always be as sensitive of a subject. I truly believe if we want to be more in tune with our planet as a whole we have to open our eyes and mind and be more aware of what we are consuming.
