Agribusiness vs Organic Meat

Why Organic?

It may seem like an easy question, but organic meat solves quite a few complex and multi-faceted issues, for health and well-being, but also for the animals we eat and the environment we live in.

Conventional farming takes hundreds of acres of land, which is terraformed, put under the stress of housing a huge amount of animals in one small space and other aspects of conventional agri-business like the use of pesticides, insecticides and chemicals transferred through animal waste. These chemicals get into the grass and soil of paddocks and can run off during wet weather to waterwaysused to grow and hydrate the Earth and the animals. A main feature of organic meat production is abstaining from the use of chemicals in land management and animal husbandry. There is no use of GMOs, growth hormones, pesticides, vaccines and anything else that wouldn't present in natural feeding. Organic farming most often includes larger space, or less animal production, which also saves the earth from exceeding capacity in paddocks, making it easier for the earth to regenerate and produce nutrition-dense food. 

Organic meat protects more than just the dirt and the water, it mitigates the emission of methane into the atmosphere. Organic farms which raise a lower number of cattle consequently have lower levels of methane emission, reducing climate consequences.    

Conventional farming is also required to keep up with the demand of the market, providing consumers with their favourite cuts of meat: Most often muscle meats like steaks, ribs, chops and mince bits. Mass agriculture fills the market by killing as many heads of animals as possible to meet demand. These heads contain less popular meat cuts like organ meats, meat around the neck, the legs and the head, of which are often thrown out or left on shelves.  These less popular meat cuts are thrown away into landfill, which breeds disease and releases ethanol and methane. Organic farming, whilst also reducing amount of animals raised and killed at once, also encourages nose-to-tail eating, which you can read here

Bella and Boots has chosen to use organic meat supplied by Eumundi Meats' friendly farmers for all of these reasons and more: we use the less desired pieces of a meat carcass to provide your pet with the important omega fats, proteins, nutrients and vitamins they need to live and thrive.
