@Regrann from @sashafarm - As promised, the big reveal...
Welcome to SASHA our newest residents- the Jersey Boys! These five Jersey cows are about 1 week old and were saved from an uncertain future to live their lives free from harm at the sanctuary. Male cows such as these, are taken from their dairy farm mothers (so consumers can instead drink the milk), as males have no value on the dairy farm. Jersey males mostly end up being raised as beef cows and slaughtered at about 14-24 months, while other breeds are often slaughtered for veal at about 16-20 weeks (after being kept in small confined areas to ensure 'tender' meat). We are happy to be able to offer these sweet boys a full, long life of compassion and love! Check back here often as we'll share updated pictures (including bottle feedings!!) so that our SASHA friends and family can follow their journey
In the upcoming week, we'll share ways for you to help support and have an opportunity to name one of these cuties!!
