I just viewed the recently released undercover video from Mercy For Animals. I’m not going to share the link on here because the video brought me to tears and I am outraged that anyone would treat animals that way. But if you must see it, search ‘Mercy For Animals calves’ and I’m sure you’ll be able to find it.

I can’t say that I’m thrilled about undercover video footage – because you never see the thousands of honorable, decent farmers and ranchers who are doing the right thing in terms of animal welfare. But, I truly hope that the employees at the featured farm are punished to the full extent of the law and I must thank MFA for revealing the blatant disregard for animal welfare and complete absence of morals by the management and employees of said farm.

If you want to see how animals are and should be handled, with care, check out these farmers on twitter, Facebook or their blogs.  They all practice humane animal production practices and openly invited visitors to their farms.

Please contact them, or me, if you have any questions about animal care or production.

Until next time,

  1. It is unfortunate that one person can cause a whole industry to be judged as cruel to animals.That would be like saying all husbands are like Mike Tyson.
    I have been advocating education over regulation for a a while now for minor offences and it is interesting the West Aust state prosecutor has sent a couple guys recently to a LSS school.I beleive "Where knowledge ends, violence begins",so I am passionate about sharing Low Stress Stockmanship.
    I invite you Brandi to come along to one of my Low Stress Stockhandling schools while you are here in Aust,not sure when one may be in Closer to you.Keep up your great work.

  2. Grahame,

    I would be more than pleased to attend your LSS schools – do you have a website or link to a list of dates I can view? Thanks for reading and commenting – hope to meet you soon!
