What is the basic evil of the meat industry?

Hundreds of new corona cases were registered this week in a slaughterhouse of the Tönnies company in Germany.

At the Tönnies headquarters in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, around 5,300 employees will have to be tested in the next few days.

As a result, all schools and daycare centers in the Gütersloh district were closed again. Around 7,000 people are now in quarantine around the company.

Federal Labor Minister of Germany Hubertus Heil called the situation “shocking”.

For him, one of the main problems in the industry is that work in slaughterhouses is increasingly done with employment contracts and subcontractors, so that workers, most of whom are from Eastern Europe, are “not treated fairly”.

He now wants to end this “basic evil”, said Heil in the state television channel ARD.
But is that it?

The meat industry has other problem areas:

1. Too much manure

More animals also mean more animal excretions.

But where to put the manure? A large part of it ends up in the meadows and fields of farmers – and thus contaminates soil and groundwater with nitrogen.

Agriculture is responsible for around 57 percent of the nitrogen that is released into the environment in Germany, according to the Federal Environment Agency.

And I mean…According to market observers, the temporary closure of Tönnies’ largest German slaughterhouse in Rheda-Wiedenbrück will not lead to supply shortages.

“Meat is not scarce in Germany, not even pigs,” the Agrarmarkt Information Society in Bonn reassures us.

Thank God! Our daily meat is secured, corpses are still produced in accord.

My best regards to all, Venus
