If We All Go Vegetarian, What Will Happen to All the Pigs ?

Ask a Question

Chickens will still lay eggs, cows will produce milk and sheep will be sheared but what about pigs ? Also what will happen to the cattle farmers ?

It's not very likely, but if it did it wouldn't happen overnight. Farmers would breed fewer animals each year as demand diminishes and eventually move into arable farming. Cattle farming requires a large amount of land, as you need to grow feed and also provide grazing ground. Increasing meat consumption in developing countries is a contributing factor in the deforestation of rainforests.

I personally can’t see that ever happening. My daughter has been a vegitarian for almost 20 years but the rest of my house are all meat eaters and can’t see any of them changing. That’s probably the same in most households. 🐷🐷

It is not going to happen that we all go vegetarians.

Always everyone forget about it, that we keep these animals, because we want to eat them....

It'll never happen purely out of choice. I really don't want to thing of the circumstance that means we don't have all the options we have at the present time. I have a few vegetarian friends who lapse every now and again - not by anything I do or cook but the first thing they fall victim to? Beef? Chicken? Nope! It's always that bacon sarnie that gets them every time. πŸ˜‚

They may share the same fate as the pigs that are swimming around in the Bahamas https://www.bahamas.com/official-home-swimming-pigs

Who will feed and look after them, and who will dispose of the carcasses at the end of their long fulfilling lives, doing the same thing day in and day out?

Some animals like chickens will be saved from being cramped in cages as most are not looked after very well.
