Trying to equate Irish beef farming with the modern , barbaric hal al butchery is patently ridiculous.

A look back at the Limerick bacon factories that fed Ireland for 180 years

It seems farmers were bringing their pigs into slaughterhouses 180 years ago.

The critical point here is that there is no excuse nowadays for the method they use in hal al butchery.

A bolt gun does it quickly and humanely.

They use a method that ensures the animal suffers as much as possible. It is needless and barbaric.

People whatabouting about Irish farmers are only talking bollocks.

A simple yes or no will do.
Yes, I was briefly on the killing floor of an APB plant as part of work. What about you??

The other post was on about killing pigs on a farm. Unlike most of you townies I grew up on a farm and before the EEC/EU directed us to send animals to factories to be killed, farmers slaughtered their own animals for their own consumption. Beef would be a rarity, but a pig was a far cheaper and easier to manage animal for the table. Slit his throat, drain the blood and butcher him, salt it and stick it in barrels, nothing wasted but the squeal. We had a big old bastard of a butcher's knife for slitting the pigs throat although in my day it was used for cutting bale cords and opening paint tins.
No bolt gun, no stunner. So there.

Loads in Limerick and they were in Dublin Waterford and Belfast and probably loads of other places as well.

Obviously farmers doofus.
They weren't going to kill ALL their pigs and eat them themselves, were they?
Why have pigs and then go to butchers to buy your meat?
