About National Farm Animals Day
When is National Farm Animals Day? This holiday is always observed on April 10
This April 10 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, turkeys, ducks, rabbits, and goats. But, that’s not the whole list. Many other animals 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 the many lovable sides 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 an appreciation for the treatment and living conditions of farm animals.
