Everyone has met a farm animal in some form. By this, I mean that many of us have met parts of them as they line our grocery store shelves and butcher shops. At this point, farm animals bear little resemblance to who they once were. In their cellophane-packaged forms, they become products that people can easily purchase with a swipe of a credit card or few leaves of cash.

However, if we were to meet farm animals in a different setting, far from the grocery stores, butcher shops, transport trucks, and slaughterhouses, we’d realize our error – that the cellophane-wrapped containers in our hands do not hold “products” but rather portions of once living, breathing, and individually distinct beings who think and feel much like we do. Perhaps, at this moment, we’d see that we are hurting our friends, and that we are allowing billions of them to suffer each year in the clutches of factory farms — the most egregious abusers.

With this awakening in mind, please meet a few of our favorite farm animals below whose photos prove that they are someones, not somethings.

Reared to eat meat, I recently became vegan as I can no longer partake in the killing of animals for any reason. I am on a mission to spread the word. I hope you will join me and like my page about being vegan to give farmed animals the justice they deserve.

I, too, became 'officially' vegan very recently and share the same values as you. I only became a vegetarian less than a year ago, and I have been educating myself since then. I liked you're page =)

Happy Vegan, my background is the same. My present reality is (happily) vegan. I too "liked" your FB page. Great things there.
