How can it differently
It's not impossible to change
the situation in the Bio-industry. There are possibilities to change the
food or the housing.
It still happens that calf's
live in kind of cases. That's why they're often called case calf's, they
have hardly any space to move; they always have to stand. Because they
can't move very well, they become ill and weak. The consequence is that
they get drugs and power food. Normally the calf's would walk in the meadow
together with their mother. But if they take the calf away from the mother
for fattening, they have to take care that they stick to special rules
to keep the calf's healthy. That means they have to live in a group and
stand on straw. They need liquid food with a nipple, because of their
need. Beside they need raw food so their stomachs can develop.
Bio-industry seems cheap,
but its not when you consider that sows from the bio-industry are less
fertile as a sow that can walk outside. And porker that lives on straw
grow faster and better as porker that grows on a concrete floor. With free
range pigs they use this facts. The sows live outside and are more healthy
then the others that lives inside.
Last years many farmers exchanged
the battery for a free range barn. More and more people want to pay a few
cents more for a free range egg. But free range chickens also don't come
outdoor. But they do have enough space to move, there is daylight,
there are nests and they can take a dust bath. A new method of keeping
chickens, is to keep them on grass. They come outside for sure, on grass.
Probably the free range egg will be exchanged for the grass egg.
