National Farm Animals Day

Cows on National Farm Animals Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday event is always held on April 10

This holiday event supports a noble cause. According to Colleen Paige, the creator of this day, National Farm Animals Day was created to "raise awareness about the plight of slaughter animals, as well as to find homes for abandoned and abused farm animals". The day promotes the welfare of American livestock.

Old McDonald has a farm. On Old McDonald's farm, and many other farms, you will see a wide variety of domesticated animals. Some of the common farm animals include: cows, chickens, horses, pigs, sheep, turkey, ducks, rabbits, and goats. But, that's not the whole list. There are many other animals that are sometimes raised on farms. Other less common farm animals are:  Llamas, ostriches, buffalo, oxen, and more.    

When we think of farm animals, We think of these many lovable side of them. We don't think of their treatment and living conditions. It's not always ideal. In addition to many forms of abuse,  they are often treated with excessive hormones and antibiotics.

Visit a working farm today. It's a great way to gain appreciation for the treatment and living condition of farm animals.
