Dear friends, donors and followers,

This December newsletter is rather special for me, as a Canadian, because it is reporting on some positive items that have a link with Canada.

But first, I have a special message for you!

We are in the car right now, conducting a few unannounced inspections of animal transports before Christmas. It is a time when many animals are transported and slaughtered.
We address you in English, Dutch and Polish!
Now on to our Canada stories.
 

Gentle catching method speading to Canada

This year we became close with the NGO World Animal Protection in Toronto. They too wanted to improve the way spent laying hens are caught and loaded in Canada. So this month we hosted a successful Chicken Catching Seminar together. Over 60 stakeholders from the Canadian poultry industry attended, from major slaughterhouses to major egg companies and even national supermarkets and Canadian government inspectors!

We gave a talk about the new gentle method of chicken catching which we developed and are successfully spreading in The Netherlands. Two Dutch laying hen farmers that gave up the old-fashioned rough method of catching hens and instead adopted the EonA method a few years ago also gave a talk at the webinar about why they made the switch and how pleased they are now that they did.
It was terrific to hear Dutch egg producers speaking so highly about the cooperative work and so highly about the benefits to chicken welfare.

Our calf-project on Canadian TV

The French-Canadian TV show “La Semaine Verte” came to the Netherlands a few months ago, to document our project to change the dairy industry from within by developing a label for dairy whereby the calves grow up for at least three months with their mothers in the herd.

Last week the show was broadcasted. The entire show is interesting, but the part with EonA starts at minute 7:43.

Wishing you happy holidays

The world seems to be going through a lot of chaos right now. But it is also a time for hope. Hope that all this shaking will lead to a new and improved world, where values and lifestyles are re-set, so that our choices and actions may not do so much harm.

Despite the on-going animal-welfare problems in this world, and the fact that it is a second year when many of you are suffering from the effects of Covid-19 we still wish you all very happy holidays.
And THANK YOU all for the AMAZING support we received this year!
