I’m sure there are a few vegetarian cattle ranchers out there somewhere.
My six-year-old has decided she is not a meat eater. Actually, this has been the case most of her life with the exception of a chicken nugget here and there. It’s not about ethics or politics and she sure doesn’t mind anyone else enjoying a juicy steak. She just likes other things to eat.
It’s true my girl always takes her lunch to school. She takes fresh fruit, vegetables, parmesan or goat cheese and a yogurt every single day because that’s what she prefers.
Picky? Sure. But, I am not opposed to her food choices. I am really pleased she loves fruit and vegetables and doesn’t need ranch dressing or ketchup to make them edible. I also find it amusing that she likes stinky cheese–a girl after my own heart!
But, I wonder how she will do as a vegetarian cattle rancher? Other than not eating meat, she is just like most ranchers; she loves the herd and remuda and she has the best interest of the animals at heart. She’ll be alright.
