Running a business often involves making decisions on behalf of people. For example, the CEO of a company might publicly state the kinds of values their business stands for, with the implication being that if you are involved with that business, you too share in those values. That is why it is so important to get behind businesses with practices you agree with and care about, and what value could be more important than the well-being of animals?
We at ‘Til the Cows Come Home understand that farmers often form emotional bonds with the animals that have helped sustain their livelihoods, and that the farmers want to see these animals happy and healthy.
Culling these beautiful animals would be the absolute last wish for most farmers, and this is a situation that no one wants to be in. But alas, if the animals on the farm are no longer generating an income they go from being a means of profit-generation to a liability, because it costs the farmer more to keep the animals than the revenue they are bringing in. Despite loving and caring for these animals, this situation can put farmers in a tight spot, with no clear solution in sight. That is why we at TTCCH have worked with many farmers across a number of communities to devise a solution to this issue, which involves farmers surrendering the animals to us that they no longer need, so that they can be rehoused in loving environments and possibly even put to work saving the planet!

Why did the cow cross the road? To get to the udder side of this issue!
When running a business, you are constantly looking at the relationship of expenditure against profits. As long as the profits are higher than the costs, your business is doing okay. This kind of analysis, of looking at the co-dependant relationship between moving forward, and moving back, also applies to farmers who are looking out for what is best for their animals. For example, when male calves have no way of generating an income for them, and retaining and caring for cows and hens that are no longer productive will only lead to overpopulation and put a strain on resources, then in this situation it may seem like culling is the only feasible option.
Well, that may have once been the case, but with the help of ‘Til The Cows Come Home (TTCCH), we are pleased to offer an alternative solution that works for the farmer, works for the animals, and works for us! With all parties involved getting a happy outcome, NOT doing it does not make good business sense.
Now, you are probably moo-ved by our words, but remember, actions speak louder than words! Let’s get to this, because these animals won’t save themselves.
If you would like to surrender retired farm animals for us to put up for adoption to a loving home then drop us a message at connect@tilthecowscomehome.org, or would simply like to help our efforts towards a better world, please consider donating to our secure PayPal: paypal.me/tilthecowscomehomeau
