A livestock farmer has described veganism as ‘controlled malnutrition’ during a panel discussion at a farming event.

Patrick Kent, the President of the Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association also stated that veganism is a cult movement.

‘Controlled malnutrition’

Kent made these remarks when asked whether veganism poses a threat to farming – a question the farmer didn’t actually answer.

He said: “I think we have a massive opportunity to address some of these issues. Veganism now is very, very financed and it is kind of a cult movement.

“I think it needs to be tackled for what it is; it’s controlled malnutrition. 

“People are eating less nutrient-dense foods than ever before.”
