For me it's kinda like raising your own animals for slaughter.  How many folks do that today?  Of course, back when we were doing our own when the kids were young, we had our ways of reminding them that the animals they were caring for were food.  Last pair of feeder pigs were named Ham and Sausage. A pair of lambs were Lamb Chop and Leg-O'.  One steer was named T-Bone.  Not easy to make the transition from "pets" to food, but then there's always a little regret when I drop a wild critter. Same thing in my mind.  The kids knew it and are passing it along to their own kids.  You don't take animals for granted, but you don't stop eating.

My grandfather often took me to the slaughterhouse he worked for.

In high school and the first year of college I worked summers as a "meat lugger" for a wholesale meat company. We carried the hindquarters and forequarters of cattle (mostly) from the refrigerated truck into the plant where we hung them on hooks that rode on rails.

As a result of these experiences, I never did feel any emotion or regret for the termination of these food animals.

We eat way more deer than beef and 30 years ago, we ate deer, elk, and moose almost exclusively.
 
When my kids were still small, I raised a steer calf up. The kids named him Sam. 
After I had him butchered, we had beefsteak one night. The kids took a bite and asked, "What kind of meat is this? It tastes different." 
I said, "This is Sam".  They didn't miss a beat and said, "He sure tastes good."


It's amazing how kids adapt to changes.
