Black & White Holstein Steer

Benjamin was born at a dairy near Mount Vernon, Washington. He was taken away from his mother at one day old. A woman bought him as a pet and moved to Oregon with him. He stayed on a small piece of land. The woman had to move again and couldn't take Benjamin with her. He was then moved to several different farms. He had to stay by himself in small fenced areas and was very unhappy as he had no companionship.

The farmers asked the woman if she would sell Benjamin to them as they wanted to butcher him and he would be made into burgers for fast food outlets (McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, etc.). She refused and contacted Precious Life Animal Sanctuary, who agreed to take him. Benjamin was moved in a horse trailer and quickly made friends with all the people and animals at the sanctuary. Benjamin will never be killed for food and will live out his life with plenty of food and love.

Benny loves to be petted and is four years old.
