Ok this is random guys but just wanted to know how are cows, sheep etc slaughtered in UK? I know they're pre-stunned but do they die before their throats are cut or are they still alive ??? IF this is not the way, then how else do they slaughter them ?
Where can I get adequate and right information ?

Scarily enough a google search for "guidelines for slaughtering animals in the UK" brings up the following POCKET GUIDE!

http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/welf...ter/pb3478.htm

Not sure if it has all the info you need though. More details should be available on the DEFRA site somewhere.

Thanks for this but it doesnt say whether they are still alive after stunning?

Just wondering if this is to do with meat being halal or not? If so, then my guess is that the standard method does not fall within the restrictions for being halal. There are specialist butchers and sections in most large supermarkets that have meat clearly marked as halal.
