Visible Casualties of Carnistic Ideologies

"Meat cannot be procured without violence" - Dr. Melanie Joy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0VrZPBskpg

For more about the "replacement parts" pigs, along with other pigs and lambs victimized by other programming at the public funded Wagner Farm, as well as other animal welfare issues at Wagner Farm, please see: www.WagnerFarmRescueFund.blogspot.com

To many, the semantics of animal "ownership" often are used in various realms to facilitate numerous aspects of animal exploitation. To many, whether animals are owned by "private" parties or by the public, once they become part of a public-funded facility in any manner their immediate and ongoing welfare also becomes the business of the public.

A Gaping Hole in Empathy

The 2016 "replacement parts" pigs have now arrived at the public funded Wagner Farm.
The Wagner Farm cycle of 4-H pigs out, new pigs in has obviously begun again.
The gaping hole seen in the ear flap of one of the pigs demonstrates how many animals who are victims of animal agriculture have their bodies defiled in various ways.

video











For information as to these other (4-H) pigs (and 4-H lambs) who are now gone due to the programming outcomes at the public funded Wagner Farm, along with what has happened to many of the previous "replacement parts" pigs before a new 4-H season begins, please read:
Please see the exposes of Wagner Farm by Robert Grillo / Free from Harm and national journalist James McWilliams:

"Replacement Parts" Pigs Have Arrived

The 2016 "replacement parts" pigs have now arrived at the public funded Wagner Farm.


The Wagner Farm cycle of 4-H pigs out, new pigs in has obviously begun again.
Where are the pigs? My children came to see the pigs again
- a visitor to Wagner Farm yesterday in finding no pigs there and in reference to the nine pigs who were just there, before these new pigs were brought in


For information as to these other (4-H) pigs (and 4-H lambs) who are now gone due to the programming outcomes at the public funded Wagner Farm, along with what has happened to many of the previous "replacement parts" pigs before a new 4-H season begins, please read numerous other August and September blog posts from Wagner Farm Rescue Fund, including:

The Pigs Come And Go

video

The pigs come and go..there should be more in a few weeks 
- a worker at Wagner Farm to yet another visitor inquiring as to why there were no pigs there now
In this video are several of these nine pigs referenced below who are now obviously gone..
Why was the non-profit Wagner Farm Rescue Fund NOT contacted and offered an opportunity to buy even just nine particular pigs from the Glenview Clovers 4-H club of the public funded Wagner Farm who weren't meeting weight requirements and weren't even being brought to the Lake County (IL) Fair - ESPECIALLY since Wagner Farm Rescue Fund has offered ABOVE market value payment - which has been continuously rejected - for their Glenview Clovers 4-H lambs and pigs in order for these animals to be sent to sanctuary rather than slaughter?
As far as these pigs who remained at Wagner Farm rather than going to auction - and are now apparently gone and being replaced with new piglets - it seems that the public funded Wagner Farm and their Glenview Clovers 4-H club will make advance sale arrangements for receipt of market value payment based on future weights to be determined to send these animals to slaughter while repeatedly rejecting advance sale arrangements at even above market value payment offered to send their project pigs and lambs to sanctuary.


One of the members of our rescue network was recently contacted by someone seeking sanctuary so that they might rescue three pigs from their own local 4-H club who weren't going to auction, either, and were available for purchase with other arrangements. In a collaborative effort between owners and prospective purchaser, those pigs were just purchased from their owners - who were also told in advance that these pigs would be going to sanctuary rather than slaughter.
Why isn't the public funded Wagner Farm and their 4-H club working toward the same, especially in conjunction with the non-profit Wagner Farm Rescue Fund?

The Farmer Went To Get Baby Pigs

The farmer went to get baby pigs..hopefully he'll be back with them soon..

- a programmer / tour guide at the public funded Wagner Farm, apparently trying to explain to a tour group of visiting children as to why pigs cool themselves off in mud holes - while apparently trying to deflect their question as to why there were no pigs there.
It seems that the Wagner Farm cycle of 4-H pigs out, new piglets in has begun again.

In this video are the pigs who were just there, and are now apparently gone.

Wagner Farm has a history of sending their 4-H pigs (and lambs) to auction and slaughter outcomes, and then bringing new piglets in for Fall season "education" and public display.

What greeted other visitors to Wagner Farm who were outside the pig area this morning asking about the pigs who were just there for public viewing as recently as yesterday, was a locked gate to the area.

Apparently, these nine pigs - who were reported previously as being kept at Wagner Farm to have their weight up brought up to "market" size for their purchaser - have now been removed from Wagner Farm for the purpose of slaughter, based on previous Wagner Farm senior management information and children now being told that the farmer went to get baby pigs.


Apparently these nine pigs have now been removed from Wagner Farm and based on information from senior management personnel, have been sold for slaughter
video


The locked gate to the pig area is what greeted visitors to Wagner Farm this morning who were looking for the pigs


Wagner Farm personnel were also apparently unavailable for comment based on attempt by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund to speak with them.

They are - or soon to be "were" - nine, sentient individuals.

As far as the pigs who remained at Wagner Farm rather than going to auction - and are now apparently gone and being replaced with new piglets - it seems that the public funded Wagner Farm and their Glenview Clovers 4-H club will make advance sale arrangements for receipt of market value payment based on future weights to be determined to send these animals to slaughter while repeatedly rejecting advance sale arrangements at even above market value payment offered to send their project pigs and lambs to sanctuary.
