The young animal activist Julie Siemering has made it her mission to create a species-appropriate environment for cows and to arrange animal adoptions. She owns 10 cows and takes care of most of them herself.
Julie’s philosophy: “My cattle are individuals, independent personalities who can live a natural life with my support. I bought them all from bad conditions or saved them from slaughter. They all have one thing in common: they were kept as farm animals and found their way to me and are now living animals, pets, my friends, my family. I meet them at eye level. My cattle live in family groups that stay together, friendships remain because I don’t tear them apart. My cattle make decisions about their own lives as best they can. Being at eye level also means being part of their herd, learning from them. We make mistakes together and learn from them. On my website I would like to introduce my animals, to give each of them a platform, because they are so special, so unique! And together with me and our story they carry the message into the world: Respect and dignity to all living beings!
