Including information on cattle, pigs, poultry, sheep, and goats, and exotics like bison, rabbits, elk, and deer How can anyone from a backyard hobbyist to a large-scale rancher go about raising and selling ethically produced meats directly to consumers, restaurants, and butcher shops? With the rising consumer interest in grass-fed, pasture-raised, and antibiotic-free meats, how can farmers most effectively tap into those markets and become more profitable? The regulations and logistics can be daunting enough to turn away most would-be livestock farmers, and finding and keeping their customers challenges the rest. Farmer, consultant, and author Rebecca Thistlethwaite (Farms with a Future) and her husband and coauthor, Jim Dunlop, both have extensive experience raising a variety of pastured livestock in California and now on their homestead farm in Oregon. The New Livestock Farmer provides pasture-based production essentials for a wide range of animals, from common farm animals (cattle, poultry, pigs, sheep, and goats) to more exotic species (bison, rabbits, elk, and deer). Each species chapter discusses the unique requirements of that animal, then delves into the steps it takes to prepare and get them to market. Profiles of more than fifteen meat producers highlight some of the creative ways these innovative farmers are raising animals and direct-marketing superior-quality meats. In addition, the book contains information on a variety of vital topics: • Governmental regulations and how they differ from state to state; • Slaughtering and butchering logistics, including on-farm and mobile processing options and sample cutting sheets; • Packaging, labeling, and cold-storage considerations; • Principled marketing practices; and • Financial management, pricing, and other business essentials. This book is must reading for anyone who is serious about raising meat animals ethically, outside of the current consolidated, unsustainable CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) system. It offers a clear, thorough, well-organized guide to a subject that will become increasingly important as the market demand for pasture-raised meat grows stronger.

»Ich liebe Würste auch, aber ich esse sie nicht.« Jonathan Safran Foer in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung »Tiere essen« ist ein leidenschaftliches Buch über die Frage, was wir essen und warum. Der hoch gelobte amerikanische Romancier und Bestsellerautor Jonathan Safran Foer hat ein aufrüttelndes Buch über Fleischkonsum und dessen Folgen geschrieben, das weltweit Furore macht und bei uns mit Spannung erwartet wird. Wie viele junge Menschen schwankte Jonathan Safran Foer lange zwischen Fleischgenuss und Vegetarismus hin und her. Als er Vater wurde und er und seine Frau überlegten, wie sie ihr Kind ernähren würden, bekamen seine Fragen eine neue Dringlichkeit: Warum essen wir Tiere? Würden wir sie auch essen, wenn wir wüssten, wo sie herkommen? Foer stürzt sich mit Leib und Seele in sein Thema. Er recherchiert auf eigene Faust, bricht nachts in Tierfarmen ein, konsultiert einschlägige Studien und spricht mit zahlreichen Akteuren und Experten. Vor allem aber geht er der Frage auf den Grund, was Essen für den Menschen bedeutet. Auch Foer kennt die trostspendende Kraft einer fleischhaltigen Lieblingsmahlzeit, die seit Generationen in einer Familie gekocht wird. In einer brillanten Synthese aus Philosophie, Literatur, Wissenschaft und eigenen Undercover-Reportagen bricht Foer in »Tiere essen« eine Lanze für eine bewusste Wahl. Er hinterfragt die Geschichten, die wir uns selbst erzählen, um unser Essverhalten zu rechtfertigen, und die dazu beitragen, dass wir der Wirklichkeit der Massentierhaltung und deren Konsequenzen nicht ins Auge sehen. »Tiere essen« besticht durch eine elegante Sprache, überraschende Denkfiguren und viel Humor. Foer zeigt ein großes Herz für menschliche Schwächen, lässt sich aber in seinem leidenschaftlichen Plädoyer für die Möglichkeiten ethischen Handelns nicht bremsen. Eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für jeden Menschen, der über sich und die Welt – und seinen Platz in ihr – nachdenkt. Mit einem eigens für die deutsche Ausgabe geschriebenen Vorwort von Jonathan Safran Foer. »Diese Geschichte begann nicht als ein Buch. Ich wollte nur wissen – für mich und für meine Familie – was Fleisch eigentlich ist. Wo kommt es her? Wie wird es produziert? Welche Folgen hat unser Fleischkonsum für die Wirtschaft, die Gesellschaft und unsere Umwelt? Gibt es Tiere, die man bedenkenlos essen kann? Gibt es Situationen, in denen der Verzicht auf Fleisch falsch ist? Warum essen wir kein Hundefleisch? Was als persönliche Untersuchung begann, wurde rasch sehr viel mehr als das ...« Jonathan Safran Foer Der Titel enthält eine vom Vegetarierbund Deutschlands (VEBU) zusammengestellte Übersicht zur Sachlage der Massentierhaltung in der Bundesrepublik.

Das Standardwerk über vernünftige Ernährung Der Mensch gehört von der Konsititution seiner Verdauungsorgane her zu den Omnivoren, den Allesfressern. Das war in der Evolution sicherlich nützlich. Doch das heutige Überangebot von Nahrungsmitteln in Supermärkten und Schnellrestaurants bringt nicht nur ihn selbst körperlich an den Rand des Abgrunds, sondern ruiniert auch noch seinen Lebensraum und sein soziales Umfeld. Mit Biss und investigativer Recherche sieht sich Pollan um, wie unsere Nahrungsmittel hergestellt und verarbeitet werden, vom Maisfeld über Cheeseburger mit Pommes bis zum Öko-Menü. Er öffnet uns die Augen für unser gestörtes Essverhalten und für den Weg zurück zu Einfachheit und Genuss.

This book documents the harmful effects of factory farming in both industrialized and developing countries and explains the range of problems it can cause. From transmission of disease and loss of livestock diversity to hazardous and unsanitary processing methods, it shows clearly why factory farming is an unsafe, inhumane, and ecologically disruptive form of meat production. Also shows how the individual can make a difference by supporting local, organic, or pasture-raised animal products.

Concepts of ecological integrity have recently been proposed to facilitate enhanced protection of biological and ecological resources against the threat of human activities. The promotion of ecological integrity as a basis for public policy and decision making stems from scientists and others concerned about the threats of human activities to ecosystems and species, and from philosophers attempting to derive a more suitable ethic to guide the relationships between humans and the non-human environment. Although ecological integrity has been proposed as a norm for public policy and decision making, the concept is relatively new and therefore the underlying scientific and philosophical rationales have not been fully developed. This book offers a number of perspectives to stimulate and inform future discussion on the importance and consequences of ecological integrity for science, morality and public policy. Audience: Environmental professionals, whether academic, governmental or industrial, or working in the private consultancy sector. Also suitable as an upper-level reference text.
