vegan protests at marts

Is Norwich weekly? Never see their prices in the press or anything.

I suspect you must have a few militant vegans in the city with time on their hands and only one place to protest against, not like the SW or North of England with loads of different markets, slaughterhouses etc.

Put a hunting horn in the glove box and give it a toot next time you’re passing. Should wind them up nicely 👍
Maybe because your mart is on a Saturday you see them more?

Seen one or two outside the local mart,generally most stock in before they get out of bed.

I blame Greggs for being just around the corner as I’d imagine they go there after for a vegan sausage roll. :ROFLMAO:
Which one would that be? ‘‘Twas at Ruthin on Thursday selling a few Angus calves and didn’t see owt.

Not seen any at market, but I was pulled over in a gateway talking to a neighbour a couple of weeks ago with the livestock trailer on, and two women slowed up, wound the window down and shouted "you're cruel and nasty and animal abusing c&%ts" before carrying on their merry way.

I assume they were vegans reacting to the livestock trailer, and not just the effect I had on them...

‘I’ll put you down as a maybe for a lamb box then’
 
There is a lot of evidence that suggests the human diet and having a relatively large skull and brain went hand in hand. Having a large brain compared to the size of our skeletons means you needed a diet that could feed and maintain it. Larger brain meant more memory and problem solving and gave us the ingenuity that allowed us to really catch game/meat in the required volume needed. Humans don't have particularly acute senses, we lack serious teeth or claws and we can't even run that fast so it was largely down to team work and cunning if you wanted to catch live prey.
There’s a theory that human brain evolution went into overdrive when fire was discovered. Cooking food, especially meat, apparently provided the energy and protein for a larger brain to develop.

My wife would argue with that! The number of hot delish' meals I get I should be a brain surgeon!!!!! 😂😂😂But you do get a through back every now and then 😌😬

I’m surprised they don’t take a day trip to beautiful West Wales and hold up a Mart there 🤔. Or perhaps their vegan principles don’t run to getting the sort of welcome I suspect they would be on the receiving end of .....😂😂
 
It still puzzles me what vegans hope to achieve standing outside the market.
In most cases its generations of farming families, who are never going to change that see them.
The occasional member of the public comes past, and the vegans don't react because they aren't pulling livestock trailers so they don't get the full "benefit" of the protesters signs.
Then there is the old bill, who all look thoroughly fed up having to stand and listen to the vegans rhetoric all morning.
The vegans don't exactly massively disrupt anything as they have to stay on the edge of the road these days and aren't allowed in the market where they wouldn't last 2 minutes anyway.
One thing I would warn however, is its not a great idea to openly ask online about why vegans don't do certain things that would disrupt farmers more, as they are so stupid to have not thought it up themselves, they then jump on the ideas and start using them when they see them.

The 31 March deadline for responses to RABI’s Big Farming Survey is fast approaching and everyone linked to farming across England and Wales is being encouraged to take part.

“The support that we’ve received since the launch of The Big Farming Survey in January has been incredible. We’d like to thank everyone who has already completed the questionnaire or promoted the research project more widely,” says RABI’s Chief Executive, Alicia Chivers.

“However, the more comprehensive the data collected, the better the reflection on the daily realities of people from all sectors of agriculture and across all regions,” she adds. “We therefore want to hear from farmers, farm workers, contractors, spouses, adult-aged children and...
