This is the reality of what "Farm" life is all about.
The most ordinary meaning of the word, 'fix', is when we are coveying
the information that something needs to be fixed because it is broken, or
damaged, or not working right.
FarmFix is dedicated to fixing the horrendous injustices and cruelties which
are inflicted o n the most helpless and brutalized animals of all - those
raised and used as food.
Please go here now and sign the petition to create a humane law for transporting farm animals. All animals deserve humane treatment.
Called 'farm animals', these kindly, placid, completely inoffensive
animals were domesticated long ago, and cannot survive o n their own.
They have loyally accompanied humans throughout the eons, and had, until relatively
recently, been treated for the most part, humanely.

Got Milk ?
We all love to see the great film, 'Babe', and to imagine that all
animals raised for food enjoy at least some free years, roaming around a lovely
farm, free to sniff flowers and to interact with others in their families,
able to feel the sunshine and breathe fresh air, and we like to think they're
happy in their lives, even if they will some day meet a grisley end.
Not so. Not since the evil minds of profit-seeking, single-minded and greedy
people have invented the torture chambers known as factory farms.
The very word, 'factory', is a scary word to use in the idea of a
lifeform. Lives are not piecemeal assembled, they are not created by man.
Lives are bestowed by the grace of the miracle of creation, and every o ne
of us is very directly related to every cow, pig, sheep, horse, and goat in
the world, share the same feelings, the same fears, the same need for warmpth
and comfort of our own kind, the same basic requirements of an adequate life
like safety, good food, space for exercising, for exploring and rest and play
and fun, fresh, clean water, and a feeling of good will.
They bear their young the same way as we, they are fed from their mother's
breasts, and they have active, intelligent minds, full of curiosity, whimsy,
and distinctive and interesting personalities. They enjoy communicating with
people, and feel o nly kindness toward us. They look to us to lead them,
to tend them, and they trust us implicitly.
So often, in traveling, I will stop o n a country road and invariably,
if I see a field with cows in it, I will approach them, and they always come
to be near me. I talk gently with them, and they interact, and enjoy getting
stroked around the ears just like dogs do.
This pastoral scene, of cows grazing lazily in the sunshine, is disappearing
The brutality behind even those who are able still to enjoy a scant year of
life like this is that for every new birth of a baby boy calf, countless will
spend the months of their lives contained in a wooden crate, unable to stand,
to turn around, even to ever scratch themselves. They will be given drugs
that make them horribly thirsty, and will be deprived forever of water. Why
do this to a newborn infant? A beautiful, precious life? So that barbarous
people can eat their whitened flesh.

Torturing them this way, as they plea to anyone they see for some relief,
for some way to stand up, to stretch, to move, makes their flesh paler. This
is the whole reason for such evil practices.
When they are cruelly murdered and butchered, as with other animals destined
for someone's table, they are not kindly treated. They are put into hot
or freezing metal, depending o n the time of year, closed-in truck beds,
given no water, no food, and hauled over gruelling long distances, crammed
in so tightly together that their intestines are actually often pushed out
of the sides of their bodies!
This in order to save time, money, transport costs, whatever.
Their sentience, their feelings, their basic needs, are never considered by
the people of no conscience who run these industries.
And then, at the slaughterhouse, as they can barely stand after such an ordeal,
they must stand in fetid holding areas as they hear the terrified screams
of the others ahead as they are hoisted up by o ne leg, hanging, their
sheer weight breaking their bones, as the huge, overgrown pounds added to
their frames by weird hormones are pulled by gravity and they are pulled helplessly
along until their turn comes to be hit with a stunner o n the head. Too
often, this stunning blow has been delivered o n the wrong place, as the
hapless cow or pig or lamb struggles to break free, horrified beyond any nightmare!
And when this happens, they can actually go past the throat- slashing, if
even this process is done correctly, and get skinned alive!!!
Please, please join us in making sure that the laws protecting animals from
such abuses are enforced!
And more, please join us in boycotting the meat
industry and the milk industry - which also sends its' baby boy calves
to veal crates, and treats the milk cows horribly.
Please Veganize, and you will be compassionate to all helpless and beautiful
You yourself will become more beautiful, in your soul as well as in your body.
Your body was meant to be a temple for your spirit, not a graveyard full of

Along with boycotting any store or restaurant serving veal - which is just infant calves treated cruelly, boycott anyone serving lambs, innocent, infant sheep, and anyone or any place serving or selling pate, which is sweet, precious ducks and geese force-fed and treated so cruelly it's difficult to imagine!!
Use your dollars and your power to change things! Ask - call ahead - before patronizing a restaurant or cafe and especially, ask if they have lobsters and crabs - so cruelly treated!
Patronize o nly restaurants that serve compassionate food - or at the very least, less cruel foods!
Let the o nes who invite you to dinner know you will not attend if they're serving cruel foods!
Invite friends and relatives over or spring for dinners out to Vegan restaurants! Show your friends and relatives how much better Compassionate food tastes! Show them how to prepare Kind foods and how to be healthy! You'll be saving not o nly the innocent, helpless fellow beings, but also the human beings around you!
