About National Farm Animals Day
National Farm Animals Day began in 2005 due to the hard work of one woman, celebrity animal rescuer, Colleen Paige.
National Farm Animals Day was established as a day to bring awareness to how animals on farms are treated. Americans consume/process more livestock per capita than any other country in the world and we are unaware of what happens behind closed barn doors.
Many commercial brands are growing increasingly dependent on livestock supplies from farmers across the country, which leads to more animals being confined and placed under circumstances typical of factory farms. Today it’s all about keeping up with demand so that companies can continuously sell their products to a hungry audience.
