This paper begins with a description of farm life as it used to be, where animal and owner live together in harmony. It then explains the author's reasons for being a vegetarian are not due to the killing of the animal for food, but rather due to how the animals are now raised and the quality of their lives. The paper then offers graphic examples of cruelty to farm animals.
