You really wanna know why farmers don't name their animals anymore? The farming industry has become so huge that animals aren't individual creatures. They're numbers and bodies that will eventually become the bacon and steak on our plates. I'm no PETA representative, but I find that depressing. There aren't real farmers out there anymore. When I think of a farmer, I think of an independently owned farm that hasn't been bought out by some huge corporation. Farmers are now called agriculturists, and have little to do with the raising of the animals. Agriculturists are only in it for the money.
