Description

Teaching compassion for farm animals is an essential part of the LNF mission, but unlike “animal rescue” operations, we don’t ignore the purpose of most livestock: to provide food for people. The survival of farms and farmers depends on the bottom line, which is met by selling meat. But when good management practices are followed, the lives of cattle, sheep and pigs can be healthy and happy.

This program – named after a Highlander heifer named Elspeth – will provide a safe place where adults and youth can learn about treating animals with respect and kindness. It’s good for humans and good for livestock.

Your contribution will go towards creating a stall in memory of Ryder, a 4-H heifer who died in 2019. She was a loved and cared for Highlander who, with her 10-year old trainer, Olivia Nason, won ribbons at the Deerfield and Hopkinton Fairs in 2018.
