Don't get butthurt, you work in a production field that very smart nerd bean-counters have completely mastered without regard for long term health concerns.
I won't pretend to know much about the harvest and processing of live stock. I know a fair amount about the nutrition intake and management swine more than others as swine science was what I really got into. I did take some beef classes but I have very limited (not much more than a year) real world experience. I currently work on the row crop production side of the industry (soybeans, corn and alfalfa to be exact). As far as GMO crops I can tell you quite a bit and what I don't know I have a team of agronomist and plant breaders who can answer my questions. What upsets me is mindlessly trashing something without proper facts.
