The Hereford’s eyes, dark with thick lashes, get to me every time.
Why do I eat some animals and not others? If I believe cattle are created in the image of God, what does that mean when I eat a steak?
I look again into the Hereford’s eyes which look back at me. I’m consumer, producer, lover of animals, user, observer.
