Most people know enough by now about the realities of animal farming, regardless of scale or label, to envision at least some of the details of what farmers and ranchers actually do to animals, versus verbalizations about "proper care" and "basic ethic of compassion."
What these abstractions express and perpetuate in this context is alienation from actual animals. What they demonstrate is lack of respect for animals, indeed mockery of the very idea of "respecting" them. No one who truly respects animals, respects their dignity, feels with and for them, and wishes them joy in life supports "farming" them, because animal farming is about degrading animals meanly to the level of their genitals and their genes, mutilating their body parts, destroying their family life, controlling every aspect of their lives including culling (killing) them as one pleases when they are deemed not "productive" enough to keep feeding, and ultimately murdering them.
How can anyone claiming to respect animals promote a view of them as "dinner"?
