Many of us never have the privilege of getting to know a farm animal. Instead, we know them by their parts. A cow is a rib steak, a brisket, a package of ground beef. A pig is a strip of bacon, schnitzel, a loin chop. A chicken is a wing, drumstick, or a thigh.

While this categorizing may make it easier for some to pick out what they’d like from the grocery store, it’s also a way of distancing ourselves from who these individuals once were.

Thinking of a farm animal as an individual is certainly not something many feel comfortable with, but just like the domestic animals we share our households with, farm animals also have their own distinct personalities, likes, dislikes, and desires. What’s more, if we’d give them a chance, they’d show us just as much love as our beloved dogs and cats.

To prove this to you, take a look at the 12 photos below. Each embodies two key elements: (1) that farm animals can show us endless amounts of love, and (2) that we have everything in our power to return the same love and affection to them, too. Now, isn’t that wonderful?

 1. “I always love snuggle time with my human. Wouldn’t you?”

Animals are all loving if given the opportunity. I hope someone soon wins the noble peace prize by figuring out how to grow meat.
