2 October - World Farm Animals Day
Goats are great companions for other farm animals, including horses, cows, and chickens. Sheep make a bleating sound. Cows will outnumber people soon. With over 94 million cows in the U.S., there is approximately one cow for every three people.
With a massive market for beef in the U.S. and Canada, raising cattle is at the top of the list for livestock. Not only do you get a decent payout for each animal you raise, but cattle are remarkably low-maintenance.
Life is hectic and we often donít take the time to think about where our food comes from and how it got to our plate. Thatís why World Farm Animals Day is important to acknowledge. Created in memory of Mahatma Ghandi, the day highlights the suffering of billions of farm animals living in poor conditions on factory farms around the world, and helps to push for changes to be made to improve farm animalsí lives. Ghandi believed in treating all living beings with respect and this is an essential component of a compassionate and just society.
