So often I hear “farmers don’t care about their animals.” 99% of the time, that is not the case. • This (horribly pictured) steer here is Billy. Billy was a bottle baby. His mom refused him when he was born because he was a twin. So we ended up with him. We took him to schools to educate children about cattle and beef. • My father and Billy loved each other. Children loved petting Billy and seeing a cow up close! Time passed, Billy got bigger. He broke every fence we had, so we took him to the neighbors. He broke their fence too. We built new fence and took him back. Then he taught our other cows bad habits. • Finally it got to the point where he became dangerous, not just because of his size but because of his “cow/dog” demeanor. So we made the difficult decision to sell him. It wasn’t an easy one at all. Because we loved him so much. He really was part of the family. • Every time I hear that farmers don’t care about their animals, I think of dad in the hospital and the only thing that distracted him from the pain was FaceTiming with Billy. And Billy getting excited about seeing him and I just smile and politely disagree. #cattletales #beefmagshares
