Consumers who choose to eat meat ...
are increasingly interested in farm animal welfare & care for a variety of
reasons. The manner in which an animal is raised not only is indicative of
food safety & health but impacts the taste of the food as well. Consumers
appear to be willing to pay for food perceived to be of higher quality. With
outbreaks of diseases such as foot & mouth disease, “mad cow” disease,
salmonella, food poisoning or e. coli, consumers become more interested in
the manner that the animals are raised.
