Actually, that's exactly the kind I prefer to eat. Of course, I prefer to
eat the ones I don't get along with (when I was growing up, my bro and I
noticed that it was always the troublemaker steer that Dad decided we'd
keep for the family's freezer (he always denied this, of course ;) ).

Compared to what I am presented with in the grocer's, the livestock we
raised was better treated, the meat was leaner, more flavorful and healthy,
and I had a more direct experience of, and respect for, the eternal cycle
of life and death.

And I guess that tells you where I stand on the omnivorous scale...
