    I farmed, my ancestors farmed for generations, and I know dozens of farmers.  I do not know of any farmer who would not take care of a sick animal-whether it is profitable or not.  Please do not overgeneralize.

    •  Or Sell Them (0+ / 0-)

      People who move to the country and buy animals learn that getting sold several sick animals is a rite of passage and it's just taken for granted.  

      There's a sort of mythology that farmers are all gentle and honest but need the wise guidance of urban activists, when many are actually crafty and dishonest.  

      Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness. -Pascal
