Semantics Don't Excuse Outcomes

"I'm not the guy who does that" - but as it is numerous Wagner Farm programming outcomes that facilitate it, there are many who note that semantics don't excuse the outcomes that Wagner Farm's programming is responsible for.


When, in 2015, a staff member from the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL was asked if this pig who had been reported as injured, having had surgery, and had basically been quarantined for about a month had also gone to auction (along with other pigs and lambs), it was confirmed by this staff member.
When asked further if the pig had gone through surgery and quarantine to heal just to go to auction, the answer was affirmative.
This video was taken two weeks before this pig was reportedly taken to auction - and subsequent slaughter.

A similar situation happened again in 2016 when a pig was reported by Wagner Farm management personnel as having been quarantined for recuperation from a suspected rectal prolapse and then being released in order to be taken to the Lake County (IL) Fair where he was sold at auction for slaughter along with other Wagner Farm Glenview Clovers 4-H project pigs (and lambs).
When asked how these 4-H lambs and pigs sold for slaughter are killed, a senior management official of the public funded Wagner Farm said he had an idea but "I'm not the guy who does that". When asked to speculate based on his experience, this personnel basically declined to comment further on this except to say to drive around and check all those places.

As the public funded Wagner Farm has continuously rejected numerous offers by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund to humanely place many of the animals utilized at Wagner Farm including their Glenview Clovers 4-H animals, this is leading an increasing amount of people to question the motives and intent behind much of Wagner Farm programming outcomes which personnel knowingly results in the harm to and killing of animals.

Even the rooster who died last year was killed under questionable circumstances:

Inhumane Farming: Breeding Sentient Beings For Production and Consumption

"Meat Is Indeed Murder"

"As a pig farmer, I live an unethical life, shrouded in the justificatory trappings of social acceptance. There is more, even, than simple acceptance. There is actually celebration of the way I raise the pigs. Because I give the pigs lives that are as close to natural as is possible in an unnatural system, I am honorable, I am just, I am humane, while all the while behind the shroud, I am a slaveholder and a murderer. Looking head on, you can’t see it. Humanely raising and slaughtering pigs seems perfectly normal. In order to see the truth, you have to look askance, just like a pig does when it knows you are up to no good. When you see out of the corner of your eye, in the blurry periphery of your vision, you see that meat is indeed murder." - Bob Comis, former pig and sheep farmer

Animal Agriculture Promotions: Cute Photos Won't Shield Many Ugly Truths

The reality behind the bucolic facade..the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL, may post bucolic seeming animal photos, but such photos don't shield the many truths as to what happens to many of the animals utilized in their programming (such as the pigs and lambs in this video) or in the animal agriculture industry in general.

video

It doesn't shield from the public how cows are typically inseminated in the dairy industry as a whole, and results in the cute calves who often become part of insidious animal agriculture promotions.
Wagner Farm promotes itself as "one of the last working dairy farms in Cook County".

Hours Before Loading, Days Before Death

Most of the pigs were gone already..the lambs just hours before they were loaded into trailers and taken to the Lake County (IL) Fair where they were sold several days later at auction for slaughter via the programming of Wagner Farm's Glenview Clovers 4-H.

All That Remains Is Their Shirts

Their shirts - this is what remains of lambs already victimized in the Glenview Clovers 4-H programming from the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL. 
Wagner Farm is a facility of the Glenview Park District.

Their shirts are seen in a pile next to the trailer that had returned to Wagner Farm after the Lake County (IL) Fair, where Wagner Farm sells their project lambs and pigs at auction, resulting in the slaughter of these animals. 



video


I'm not the guy who does that..you can go and drive around and check all those places and see how they do it.
When asked how these 4-H lambs and pigs sold for slaughter are killed, a senior management official of the public funded Wagner Farm said he had an idea but "I'm not the guy who does that". When asked to speculate based on his experience, personnel basically declined to comment further on this except to say to drive around and check all those places.
To note, Wagner Farm senior management official was also asked several years ago how these lambs and pigs are killed, even with it being off-site and at the hands of others at that time as well, and the answer at that time was that it would be by being bolt gunned in the head - and that they did not find this to be inhumane.

"Wagner Farm tries to sell the fantasy of Old McDonald's Farm while hosting events like Baconfest... This is what we call Humanewashing, otherwise known as trying to put a humane face on what is inherently violent, cruel, gratuitous, and unnecessary. The worst part of this is that they try to indoctrinate children into believing the same cultural norms as previous generations. Time to evolve away from living off of the backs of animals when we can easily choose to be kinder." - Robert Grillo
