Farm Life

What Comes Naturally

Since it is the slow season here on the farm I was having fun perusing the internet.  I came across this article on the use of gestation crates.  I would like know.  Who looked at a tiny metal cage and thought it would be a good idea to lock a pregnant pig in it?  Who thought that this pig would produce better and be healthier never seeing the light of day?  I would like to know, how did this person become so removed from what comes naturally?

Sometimes I get caught up in my own little world and forget what's going on about me.  This was just one of those things that jolted me back to reality.  Luckily it's not my reality!
