To Raise Animals, Or Live With Them? 

BRA-Auditorium Fondazione Crb

If an animal is healthy and well-treated, its milk gains in flavor. Animal feed plays a fundamental role in this equation. And up to here, all farmers would agree. Things change when we consider other aspects, however. How much does stress caused by insufficient living space have an impact, or the lack of grazing pasture, or mutilation? What happens to an animal if it doesn’t live together with members of the same species, as it would naturally, or if it has no relation with the farmer? Can we afford to consider animals simply as instruments of production?
