Description: This study explored how farmers psychologically manage their ambivalent relationship with their animals. Participants (including UK farmers and non-farmers) were assessed on their attachments to their pets and farmed animals (the latter for farmers only), the perceived cognitive abilities of cows (relative to dogs), their degree of conflict about meat and the perception of viable alternatives to meat.
