Dairy farmer sells cow at auction


[auctioneer chanting] [bidders shouting] I don’t think a lot of dairy farmers are doing it to get rich. They do it because they like animals, the way of life, so sometimes things can really pile up and make it hard to do what you like to do. [auctioneer chanting] Right now it’s really hard for a lot of people, especially in Michigan because we have an oversupply regionally here. So we’re not getting paid as good as some of the other people in the country. [auctioneer chanting] Yeah, um, I’ve been trying to come to terms with it for a couple weeks, but never planned on it.

I’m a first gen farmer and it’s getting tougher every day to stay in the business. My 23 harvest and I’m about done myself.

This is all part of the TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. Are the FARMERS winning. TRUMP IS A STUPID SHITHOLE IN CHIEF IMPEACH him ARREST this CON MAN WHO SELLS HIS ORANGE ARMY AND HIS REPUBLICAN MAFIA. πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ–•

yep- this is what dairy farmers do. the females produce milk for 4-5 years and then they are dragged to the slaughter. ALL makl babies from the dairy industry are killed or taken into the horrific veal crates. dairy farmers are NOT good people. they make their living by causing death and harm to the most innocent animals.

gotta get smarter people in office in Michigan (its been a problem for many years),
then auction off the old staffers to be used in dog food.

I went to a stockyard like the one in this video and it was truly the saddest thing ever. They were auctioning off calves just a few days old. It was heartbreaking know where those calves were likely going to go- to be slaughtered for veal, or if they were lucky to have just a few more years of likely just to then slaughtered for beef. For those babies we were the only source of true love those cows were ever going to experience because we valued them as beings who wanted to live and who deserved love and care instead of valuing the amount of money, meat or dairy they could produce

Feel also very bad for them. Wether you are in the USA or in Canada : it comes all down to politics. And all politics are just extremely dirty. Whatever they need to do to get in power that is what they do. Farmer are pretty much seen as criminals anywhere instead of being treated as very important persons. Thanks to a farmer you are eating and breathing and capable of making πŸ’° like it or dont like it.

Most farmers do it because we "love" animals.. So much hypocrisy in that statement, he stuttered trying to say that b.s. statement. It's all about money and when these animals they "love" so much cannot make them money anymore, they're discarded like trash.

Where is Trump s government to help these yyoung farmers suffering .
I love cows i realy feel what this young farmer is going through
Very sad
