Cattle Arrive at SUNY Cobleskill

We observed cattle being unloaded

We observed cattle being unloaded the day before they were to be harvested. These healthy cattle from local farms in the Hudson Valley were raised on pasture by very mindful and conscientious farmers. It was bittersweet to get to know them a bit before they would be processed into meat the next day.  The bitter part is, of course, that they died. The sweet part is that I know they had happy lives and that their deaths would be humane.
