Should we ban baby cows being farmed and killed for veal?

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Veal has for many years and in many cultures, been eaten and baby cows killed for it. Veal may taste very nice, but animal rights protesters say that it is a complete abuse to animal rights of calves. They say the way the cows are killed and their living conditions are appalling.

Argument 1

Yes

Veal farming is a complete abuse to baby cows.

Baby cows are taken away from their mothers the day they are born and sold at auctions. When sold, they are taken to a tiny wooden crate that they will live in for the rest of their short lives. They cannot excercise or even lie down. They contract diseases and grow extremely weak, not to mention that this crate is in total darkness. The cows are cruelly treated and after about 3 months are killed and eaten for human pleasure.

This mistreatment must stop and a ban would really boost animal's rights and welfare.

No

There is a huge industry for veal farming.

If we were to ban veal farming, many people would lose their jobs and the whole veal industry would be destroyed. Many people do make a living out of killing veal and selling the meat. It would be bad for the industry, our economy and - nearly everyone. Chefs, farmers, butchers; even truck drivers would be affected if veal farming was banned. It would mean a loss of many, many jobs, people's careers and people's money; lots of people would lose wages and lose many. Just think of how big a blow this would be on society.
