Big Pharma saves the day

We have these disgraceful products here in clean, green NZ.

Marketed by Pfizor under the brand name Premarin, they are made from pregnant mares urine(PMU). If you are going through menopause/or your partner is you may well be prescribed them - break one open and smell if you don't believe. Even the name Premarin is made up from  pregnant mares urine.

The abhorrent practice of keeping these mares tied up in small stalls, constantly pregnant and discarding(most cases) the foals should surely be banned. It's difficult to get accurate figures but conservatively over half a million mares are impregnated each year.

In Canada where most is produced it was their largest drug export(was at one point-may still be)

There are far better/kinder products on the market when choosing to go onto hormone replacement therapy (HRT) - please ask for an alternative.

What about dairy companies then?.

How many Aucklanders do you think realise that nearly a mill bobby calves go to the slaughter house every year so they can have a latte?

Not quite as bad as what is on here of course, but there is some serious lack of knowledge on how a cow produces milk in a rural country like NZ.

Seems quite fitting that this symposium which is being held in Uruguay and is to be attended by Racing Analysts and Veterinarians . ( October 2016 )

Are Animal Welfare Policies & Blood Farming complimentary practices which are surreptitiously condoned by the wider Governing Equine Jurisdictions and  Animal Health Carers ? 

A genuine concern for Animal Welfare or HYPOCRITES ?
