First of all well done to Coles – for listening to what people want and now only stocking beef with no added hormones. I am still a bit sceptical about it all – especially with the wording “added” thought they might just say our beef is 100% hormone free? I will still choose to buy most of my meat from the biodynamic organic butcher though.
There are a number of reasons for this:
I am guaranteed that the beef, lamb, chicken and everything I buy from them is 100% hormone and chemical free – it seems logical to me that these animals should be raised the healthiest and most ethical way possible.
I also want to know what the farmers have been feeding these animals I choose to steer well clear of “Corn fed” beef. Cows aren’t supposed to eat f@$#ing corn they are suppose to eat grass. Corn is used to fatten them up and not thing else and god knows what else they use.
I am pleased that these companies are taking note and the people are starting to be heard – we don’t want our beef loaded up with hormones nor our chickens etc. I don’t want barn laid cage eggs either.
We need to realise that we are what we eat – what you eat becomes you!! If you eat sick unhealthy animals – what are you going to be? Too many people are sick and unhealthy!
