For those of you who haven't heard the updates on this case, the video was shown to have been edited to make things look abusive. When shown the video in its entirety, a judge, jury, and more than one vet concurred that no abuse had occurred.

In fact, any real abuse was 'staged' by the person shooting the video. This video has been entirely discounted as any source of evidence of abuse.

So who's the bad guy here? I hardly think it's the farmer or his family. It's the crackpot animal rights 'enthusiast' who tried to make an example of a dairy farmer who was doing nothing wrong.
First off, let me CLEARLY STATE that I whole-heartedly AGREE that this video is full of editing and cutting to only show what the extremists want people to see. It makes the abuse that occurs in the industry look a hundred times worse than it is - even on that one farm! And that it is aimed at making this look like the norm even though it is far from it (I know - I work on a dairy farm).

BUT

I don't really give a rat's butt what that judge had to say - There IS abuse occuring here. It is NEVER okay to do tie a cow up by her nose and beat her in the face with a metal rod. No. No no no no. And those calves? WHY are they being beaten in the face?? And the guy who broke that cow's tail? That's abuse. I'm sorry. The jabbing with the pitchfork and stuff, I can kind of see that. Because when cows get riled up, you can't reason with them. But some of that stuff is just out of line.

One man's wrong lead is another man's counter canter.
