Veal tethering will stop at Marcho Farms 

Marcho Farms, one of the largest US veal producers has announced that it will stop tethering formula-fed veal calves so they have space to turn around, lie down and the ability to interact. This company has already thousands of calves in this new program and within a few years the rest of their farms will implement the change. Wayne Marcho, company founder, said, "We are confident that leading this change in production practices will help to dispel the myths associated with veal."

Tethering calves causes tremendous suffering to them, and to the mothers that cannot take care of their young, as God designed them. The public opinion has been crucial for the above change to take place, since caring, compassionate consumers refuse to eat veal.

It is appalling; however, that the veal industry still refers as “myths” to the very real pain and suffering calves undergo. Hopefully, more veal producers will follow Marcho Farm’s example to make the lives of God’s calves a little less unbearable. A plant-based diet is still the most powerful statement against the exploitation of farm animals.
