What factors do you use to evaluate whether meat is ethical?

I define it as meat from animals that had a good life, good death, good butcher and good cook.

Interesting thought.  I suppose it's all relative and one has to decide where on the scale you draw the line of "ok now it's ethical".  For me, the death of the animal is quite important.  It can be raised super well, but I wonder how that all factors in at "the end" if the animal is super scared and stressed out.  This is for sure something I've thought a decent amount about and am rather ignorant of.

The better the better as I like to say
