National Farm Animals Day
National Farm Animals Day is observed next on Wednesday, April 10th, 2024 (129 days from today).
Farm animals are pretty much affected by living conditions, diet, hormone injections... and this is why it's important that we all have our voices heard for National Farm Animals Day on April 10 every year. First celebrated in 2005, the holiday aims to raise awareness of the overall harsh conditions in which farm animals are forced to live. Capitalism has increased the total demand for pets by commercial brands. To sell the most meat and dairy products, animals must be injected with antibodies and grow.
History of National Farm Animals Day
National Farm Animals Day was first celebrated in 2005 by Colleen Paige. Paige is a renowned pet lifestyle expert, an author, and an animal rescuer among her many other accolades and honors. Although the date is not registered as an official date, it is still widely celebrated in the United States as a message that it aims to convey many people across the country.
One of the main reasons for the inauguration day was to shed light on the poor living conditions of the animals on the farm. First, because of commercialization and capitalism, livestock is produced and maintained in large populations. Usually this means cramped and extremely cramped living spaces for the animals. All of this leads to their poor health as diseases and infections can spread easily between animals. Furthermore, to bring the product to the mass market, farm animals are also injected with antibodies non-stop.
National Farm Animals Day is also celebrated on 2 October. Their main purpose are similar to each other, including to protect farm animals in the long term and to provide a better living conditions for them. By simple logic, the produce of farm animals that we consume will only benefit us if the farm animals themselves are raised in good conditions. We can start raising awareness of this day by spreading the word about it and donating to the right organizations.
Reasons for National Farm Anima10ls Day being loved
- It's an animal rights celebration
Animals, farm animals or otherwise, deserve the same right to live in good conditions as any other creature on this planet. Just because humans are endowed with the ability to think and command, that doesn't mean we should abuse other creatures for our own selfish gain.
- It's a tribute to Mother Nature
Mother Nature has given us countless things that we benefit from every day. It may be beneficial plants and herbs, even nutritious vitamins and minerals. It is our duty to give back and the least we can do is to respect our food sources by providing them with the best possible living conditions.
- It's a celebration for a better tomorrow
The only way we can move forward and hope for a bright future is if we start today by evaluating our options. If we don't handle our food properly, in the long run we are also harming ourselves and our future generations.
