Free range is by far the exception, rather than the rule in Australia. Free range conditions should be the bare minimum, rather than a niche market. Such a change would require Australians to drastically decrease their meat consumption though. Scalability is something I plan to discuss in another post.
I applaud Aarod for trying to improve welfare standards for animals in the meat industry. The ultimate outcome for animals being raised for meat is the same though ie. a knife to the throat or a bullet to the head.
