Today is World Farm Animals Day.
This day was created in memory of Ghandi, who preached that all animals should be treated humanely, even those destined for the dinner plate.
Having grown up on a farm myself I couldn’t agree with him more. Well cared for animals will produce more milk, will grow faster, and will be overall more profitable than animals who aren’t.
We live in a society where most folks are far removed from farming. Today is a great day to find out more about it of you are one of those people. It’s even a better day for those of us who do still have a connection to agriculture to clear up misconceptions and be advocates for that way of life.
