Barker Campaigns Against Veal

Bob Barker joins with MFA to boycott and bring an end to veal production.

Animal rights organization Mercy For Animals (MFA) recently released footage obtained through a hidden camera of deplorable conditions at a major veal producer. The investigation found that at Buckeye Veal Farm in Apple Creek, Ohio, baby calves were confined to narrow stalls that, combined with chains around their necks, prohibited them from walking, turning around, or laying down comfortably, not to mention other activities such as socializing and breathing fresh air. Animal advocate and vegan Bob Barker has joined with MFA to urge a national boycott of both veal and the distributors that carry the farm’s products, such as Costco and Giant Eagle.
