They waste lives and fuel: First we ship fuel to grow the crops... Then we ship the crops to fatten the animals... Then we ship a slaughterhouse to "process" them!
It is expected that the mobile slaughter units can potentially travel up to 220 miles each day in service and will get approximately 5 miles to the gallon. I can't imagine what kind of energy it takes to chill 6000 lb of hot
flesh within 24 hrs. Or what it takes to keep it refridgerated for weeks until further "processing". THEN what it takes to ship it cool to where ever sold as "fresh" meat.
Some people will do anything for a "fix" I guess... But then again - They could just Go Vegan for a really sustainable and humane world!
