Good post baby robin.
I have always said there should be different pricing for food based on what the consumer is willing to pay for.....pay for, not demand, while increasing my expense, lowering my efficiency and expecting no increase in costs.
Auto industry has plain Jane models and if you desire some luxuries or gadgets, sure, they can accommodate you.....for a price.
If foodies, yuppies, hippies or whatever you want to call them are willing to pay for an acorn fed, pasture raised, petted, scratched, and hugged daily animal, yes, I can do that. It is not practical to think the amount of care something like that requires would be the same numbers wise of confinement animals. A lot of that type of consumer is about a living wage....should we not get that if we are delivering what they want?
For what it’s worth....I’m just not sure about building wall to wall confinement buildings all over the countryside, either. Nothing against people who want to do that but I don’t know what the limit is.
