I'm very fortunate that I am able to buy a share of a dairy cow for my milk needs. I can visit the farm and see my cow whenever I like. Unfortunately, because of big dairy's profit-mongering/lobbying, the government has also waged a war against raw (real) cow milk.
As far as meat and animal products, @Jake_Stevens, my morals, ethics, and appetite are not impacted by the loss of the life of the animal. However, I like to know the food I am eating was not a product of a torturous life and disgusting/unappetizing processes.
"Happy, happy, happy, clean and then dead." = Food
"Tortured, drugged, diddled by some sadistic redneck fuck, dead, butchered and mixed with stray feces" ≠ Food
When you open a carton in your fridge and it smells like shit, do you eat the food? No.
When you drive by a factory farm and it smells like shit, do you really want to eat the output?
