Does food being organic actually imply animal welfare is better? Isn't it just that there are no non-natural ingredients, nothing genetically modified, no pesticides, etc?
With animals there are welfare standards implied.
Although strictly speaking the word organic does mean what you say it takes on a slightly new meaning in marketing and the meat industry, probably because of the similarities between how animals are there and in non-organic free range (or at least portrayed to be in).
