This debate is about how cattle are killed for later eating, which method is preferable I am going for throat cutting.
Good luck

Well it is important to what effect killing it would have on the meat , we are not killing them for the fun of killing.

How is it incorrect? The cow is in line waiting to be killed, so deciding weather or not to shoot it or electrocute it doesn't matter.

Electrocution would tense up the meat. All great cattle farmers know that the best meat comes from a relaxed cow. I don't see any way that Con could win.

dead is dead, but electrocution can rip the meat if the cow goes spastic enough when you do it. cleanest way i've heard of is a quick stab in the brain through the ear. Drops em' like a rock no problemo

"Does is matter? They're gonna die anyway."

Incorrect. There is only a supply when there is a demand for something.

I don't like to have debates within comment sections, especially since this is only semi-related to the original topic, but there are in fact many reasons aside from the whole "murder" arguement, why Intensive animal farming is a problem. Just to mention a few:

-Deforestation for animal feed production
-Unsustainable pressure on land for production of high-protein/high-energy animal feed
-Pesticide, herbicide and fertilizer manufacture and use for feed production
-Unsustainable use of water for feed-crops, including groundwater extraction
-Pollution of soil, water and air by nitrogen and phosphorus from fertilizer used for feed-crops and from manure
-Land degradation (reduced fertility, soil compaction, increased salinity, desertification)
-Loss of biodiversity due to eutrophication, acidification, pesticides and herbicides
-Worldwide reduction of genetic diversity of livestock and loss of traditional breeds
-Species extinctions due to livestock-related habitat destruction (especially feed-cropping)

I have to agree that neither seem very desirable, however as I am a meat eater I wouldn't argue the point that we shouldn't do either... I feel as though the only people who would say don't do it at all would be vegetarians. Which would make it a very biased argument as to whether one method of killing is better than the other. Therefore if you are a vegetarian more power to you, but you cannot present a valid argument as to why we should do neither without being completely biased because of the way you live your life.
