Hayom shisha u'sheloshim yom, shehaym chamisha shavuot v'yom echad baomer

It's not quite ideal to feed grains to farmed animals and then consume those grains in the animals' flesh. As PETA vice president Bruce Friedrich put it:

It’s bizarre, really: You take a crop like soy, oats, corn, or wheat, products high in fiber and complex carbohydrates, but devoid of cholesterol and artery-clogging saturated fat. You put them into an animal and create something with no fiber or complex carbohydrates at all, but with lots of cholesterol and saturated fat. It makes about as much sense to take pure water, run it through a sewer system, and then drink it.
