I've asked this question before but have got no answers so I'll ask here. If my dad who raises beef to sell/eat would decide to stop butchering them then what do you suggest he do with his animals? He couldn't afford to raise them for free. They cost lots of money to raise. With 1 bull & 50 cows (51) in 1 year you end up with 1 bull, 50 cows & 50 calves (101). Year 2 start 1 bull, 50 cows, 25 heifers, 25 steers would end up being 1 bull, 75 cows, 25 steers & 75 calves (176). So they do multiple. I also don't know of anyone who raises cattle for pets. I split the calves 1/2 & 1/2 male & female.
I also would suggest trying to castrate a bull. They can get real mean. A vet could do it but it costs $$ & you still end up with how to raise 51 animals and not cost you.
So what is PETA's suggestion?
