A “SOKO animal welfare” comment:
EU plan for the massive feeding of animals to animals!
The EU intends to radically soften the rules on feeding animal protein to livestock.
The main goal is to create a new kind of animal exploitation.
Insects are intended to replace soybeans and to be produced industrially for factory farming of pigs and chickens. Here, of course, it is pointed out again that insects would feel less or different pain.
This derogatory argument is also known from fish and marine invertebrates.
The goal is maximum exploitation with minimal consideration for living beings that we barely understand and whose sensory perceptions we have absolutely no idea.
The factory farming groups are already looking forward to it.
Can they sell themselves as sustainable at the expense of countless living beings?
The motto remains the same: They are different, they are alien to us, so they may be killed en masse just to slaughter more animals for a senseless and cruel industry.
Values EU: One does not break this fatal and deadly cycle if one exploits and kills a further trillion animals.
Here you can write your opinion to the EU.
Make it factual, otherwise, they won’t take it seriously.
About this initiative- Summary
Since the enforcement of a total feed ban, in 2001, the epidemiological situation regarding BSE has considerably improved in the EU with no classical BSE case since 2016 and 24 Member States having a negligible BSE-risk status.
In addition, the Farm-to-Fork strategy aims at making better use of the protein and other feed material produced in Europe. With a view to addressing this dual context, the proposal mainly allows the use of insect protein and non-ruminant protein in poultry and pig feed.
The Commission would like to hear your views.
This draft act is open for feedback for 4 weeks. Feedback will be taken into account for finalizing this initiative.
Feedback received will be published on this site and therefore must adhere to the feedback rules.
And I mean...If we have understood correctly, should another factory farming be created for factory farming?
What will “insect breeding” ultimately feed on?
And all of this to keep meat production running.
Obviously, it was not enough for the EU that almost a third of the Amazon was destroyed for animal feed, it was not enough that insects are destroyed with poisons approved by the EU … now the meat producers want to feed animals with animals
Instead of really tackling the global problem of CO2 emissions at the root, abolishing factory farming, and creating a different awareness of life, the EU Commission continues to abuse and use animals for consumption and even add another species.
Ergo: even more CO2 emissions … because such mass production systems will certainly not be environmentally friendly and CO2 neutral …
Once more we can see how much power meat producers wield over the EU.
My best regards to all, Venus
