Day 7: i was nominated for the 10-day farming family challenge. every day i select an image from a day in the life of farming that has had an impact on me and post it without a single explanation and nominate somebody to take the challenge. that’s 10 days, 10 farming photos, 10 nominations and 0 explanations.
today's nominee : @porkalabiff
as a rebel i don't follow the rules and want to share few words about every photo:
i get a lot of rude comments, insults and threats because we raise cattle also for beef. i get so much hate messages telling me i am crazy, awful person, murderer who can't care for animals. people tell me i am a terrible person, i can't love animals, i should stop this maddness, i am told that my photos are fake and our animals don't feel well and i am sick for raising cattle.
i understand there are a lot of problems in animal industry. as a small organic farm we do things a bit different. we care about the welfare of our animals and the nature. we know our cattle, we spend time with them and care for them, we raise them natural way, the way they are made to be, they get to live in big pastures with a fold, they stay outside all year round and get to fullfil their natural instincts and needs. they are grass-fed, free-range, they are healthy and not grains or industrial feed is used. our cattle grazes the whole summer in nature conversation areas taking care of the nature. our cattle lives quite long time and the ones that go to slaughterhouse we take them there ourselves and we sell the meat ourselves from the farm. about 12 animals per year goes to beef in our farm. as long as people eat meat, meat will be produced. this is our way and our share of making sure that even the ones that are raised to be beef can have a good life.
our cattle means the world to me and i do my everything for them. i love highland cattle ❤️we continue our work the way we do because this is the right thing for us, for our animals and the environment. with big heart ❤️ #10dayfarmingchallenge #highlandcattle #highlanders #cattle #highlandcow #cow
