Now this really boils my pish

Vegans have bought a local house with ten acres of boggy scrub attached, and set up a "sanctuary".

They've very successfully raised money by "crowd funding" for fencing and materials.

Now they're looking for volunteers to look after the animals they've "saved".

Meanwhile, they're knocking on the farm door asking for any spare pet lambs 🤬

Ideas on how to calm myself down before going ahead and arranging house warming delivery of a meat and dairy hamper from the supermarket?

Are they allowed to advertise a job and insist person is vegan? Surely discriminatory

Just had a look at their page, see theyve "rescued" 17 calves, they're going to be fun when theyve grown up, wont be long until they run out of room that's for certain and a 4 ye aw r old steer doesnt quite have the same cute look a baby calf has so think they'll run out of money eventually, especially when they realise it's not as easy as it looks

Rongo, Ruru and Toto are at the vets just now getting their castrations so lots of TLC coming there way when their home. Just waiting for the call to go pick them up.
But VIVA says
Castration
It is standard practice to mutilate male lambs by using a tight rubber ring, a clamp or surgery to castrate them, usually at less than a week old. Even when anaesthetic is used, castration still causes chronic and acute pain.5 Lambs are castrated to improve the taste of their meat, render them more docile for handling and reduce aggression between ‘intact’ males.

Hypocrites

Both their calves had scours on 25th feb, so called vet out , then next day one had bloat and they had to get the vet again to stomach tube it and stick a needle into it to let the gas out. Then they had to give it oral AB as well!



Jeepers it gets worse and worse!

It’s a load of shite that folk can set themselves up as a charity and then fundraise to carry out their hobby.

it’s like that sketch in Viz years ago - A prolific (fictitious) fundraiser was pictured with his mbe, awarded for his selfless charity work. His list of achievements were - being sponsored to build his extension, sponsored 3weeks in the Maldives and getting sponsored to fit a new bathroom in his house.

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

While still awaiting a decision on the future by Ministers in England, Scotland and Wales, AHDB wants to reassure levy payers their views have been heard following recent ballots in the two sectors.

AHDB is now stopping programmes of work that could be restarted in the future by grower associations, individual growers or the supply chain. This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information. AHDB will continue to deliver limited emergency work on pests and diseases, including the Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU)’s and some...
