Animal cruelty and human hypocrisy at its most sinister
This is so gruesome and disgusting that I want to puke. Some researcher in Switzerland proposes caressing the new born calves for few hours every day, so that they become accustomed to humans. This supposedly reduces the stress the animals suffer when they undergo otherwise pleasant tasks like castration, earmarking, getting burnt with numbers that calves go through as they grow up.
So that their low level of stress makes their meat more tender and more tasty when they are brutally murdered by the same people who caressed them as a calf.
Surely, meat is murder.
