When animals become a business and their value is measured in cash the accountants will always hold the winning hand. The well being of the animal will be secondary if they no longer have financial value. It doesn't matter if it is for meat or racing, it is measured by dollars.
The challenge is finding a way through the maze for those who advocate for the animals welfare. The animals cannot talk. The viewpoints will never completely agree but that is how we hopefully achieve sensible balance in the end.
