It’s no surprise that animal rights activist extremists are not fond of farmers and ranchers who raise animals. No matter how well the animals are treated under farmers’ care, it will never be enough for the activists because their goal is a world without meat, milk, poultry and eggs, according to the Animal Agriculture Alliance.
To protect your farm and animals from these extreme actions, here are a few things you can do:
1. Have proper lighting, motion detectors, security cameras, and locks or key code access on gates and doors.
2. Proactively connect with local law enforcement – let them know any concerns you have and ask for advice and protocol suggestions. Make sure they have access to maps of your facilities.
3. If you do encounter any suspicious activity, immediately report it to law enforcement and notify the Animal Agriculture Alliance and your state commodity association. This could be anything from someone trying to get hired on your farm with dishonest intentions to a drone flying overhead.
