Angel's liver enzymes checked again today went down to 532 (was at 818 down to 623 back in July) but still in high zone so will recheck again down the road (will keep her on herbs still. She seems very good now, but still concerning so will keep vigilant. 1w

jake2011 A video from a friend (not mine). I want to share GREAT news. "Mercy for Animals" Organization announced Breaking News: Nestlé Makes Sweeping Animal Welfare Policy Change Following MFA Investigation. By Matt Rice.
Nestlé, the world's largest food company, has announced its commitment to improving farmed animal welfare across its entire global supply chain - covering over 90 countries - in what may be the most comprehensive and far-reaching animal welfare policy of its kind.
The announcement follows the release of hidden-camera video taken by Mercy For Animals at a Nestlé dairy supplier in Wisconsin showing workers viciously kicking, beating, and stabbing cows and dragging "downed" cows by their fragile legs and necks using chains attached to tractors.
Citing the need for continuous improvement in animal welfare, Nestlé has announced it will eliminate many of the cruelest forms of institutionalized animal abuse from its supply chain, including an end to the practices of tail docking and dehorning of dairy cattle, an end to the castration of piglets without painkillers, and the phaseout of growth promoters for poultry. The mega company has also committed to ending the intensive confinement of baby calves in veal crates, pregnant pigs in gestation crates, and egg-laying hens in battery cages. It is encouraging that Nestlé not only took notice, but also took action, after egregious cruelty was exposed at one of its dairy. Nestlé's new industry-leading policy will reduce the suffering of millions of animals each year and hopefully inspire other food providers to implement and enforce similar animal welfare requirements.
While there is still work to be done, Nestlé's new policy represents the most sweeping animal welfare policy ever adopted by a major food distributor. We hope that the rest of the food industry will follow Nestlé's lead in prohibiting the cruel confinement of animals in cages barely larger than their bodies, mutilations without painkillers, and other inhumane
With Nestlé's announcement, it's never been clearer that the days are numbered for many of the factory farming industry's cruelest practices.

jake2011 Smoke is causing poor air quality and reducing visibility over much of Alberta.
Forest fires burning in the Northwest Territories, British Columbia and Alberta are spreading smoke across many parts of Alberta, particularly areas north of Red Deer.

Smoke is causing poor air quality and reducing visibility in Central and Northern Alberta. These conditions are expected to worsen and be present for the next 24-48 hours.
