A soccer stadium in Gloucestershire, England has banned red meat from its menus, after taking the item off team menus weeks ago for health and performance reasons. Dale Vince, a vegan and the club owner, says of the decision, “If red meat was not good enough to feed our players, then it wasn’t good enough for our staff, fans, and visitors too.” Moves against animal products have been popular of late in the European country—this week a campaign was launched to stop battery dairy farming after a UK dairy farm proposed its continuation. Battery farming keeps dairy cows from grazing in pastures.
