Link doesn't work now.

I had a Sudanese Muslim come by my farm last year looking for a place to kill goats. After a bunch of talking he was telling my about Halal slaughter.

The butcher shop I use tried it twice, the muslims doing it didn't have a sharp enough knife and it was a bad experience, they will no longer allow it in their facility.

I'm all for the banning of Halal slaughter!
