ARG! Looks like Mercy for Animals (MFA) found yet another example of abuse in the livestock industry. I watched their video, which they will be releasing to the press tomorrow, but it did not sit well with me at all (I'm so MAD at these people, I couldn't go to bed without posting)! It was really hard for me to watch such pain and disrespect for these calves. Heart wrenching doesn't even begin to describe how I felt. I wanted to reach through the screen at take a swing at the abusers! Everyday, dairy farmers like myself work diligently, putting the care of our calves and cows first, most times before our own care. It is a black eye on our industry when another situation like this is found. Abuse of this nature is not commonplace in our industry, even though some activists would lead you to believe this. Orange Patch Dairy and other dairies across the nation strive everyday to improve the care we give our animals. We do not treat our animals like waste and we do not withhold medication/medical care. Our cows get our VERY BEST, EVERYDAY!
Thank you MFA for finding and reporting this abuse. It is an example of completely INAPPROPRIATE animal care.
Please see the following links for other farms/dairies and videos...showing how much we truly put our cows needs first!
Don't go Vegan to protest abuse....prosecute the abusers!
