How to be an equine farm worker

Equine farm workers are often the backbone of the workforce.

They are often forced to work with the animals for months on end and are required to travel hundreds of kilometres to find their own land.

The work can be dangerous.

“They have to be careful because of their injuries,” said one female farmer.

 “They need to be prepared and know how to perform tasks.”

The plight of farm workers has also recently come to the fore in the Australian media with the emergence of a new generation of equestrians who are being targeted by animal rights campaigners.

The Australian Animal Rights Network has launched a campaign to raise awareness about the plight of Australian farm workers.

It is urging Australian farmworkers to join the Australian Animal Liberation Front, a group of farmworkers and animal rights activists that are organising a “human rights campaign” to highlight the plight and the plight that Australian farm labourers are facing.

“Farm workers are incredibly vulnerable to exploitation,” said the AARN’s executive director, Joanne Kline.

AARN spokesperson Emma Jones said the group has been in touch with some farmworkers who are involved in the AVRF.

“These women have not been able to access justice due to the fear and violence they are facing in their daily lives,” she said.

In the past two years, a number of Australian farmers have been accused of animal abuse.

One farmer, who is currently in jail for the abuse of his animals, was accused of killing his dog, which had been suffering from a life-threatening case of mange.

The farmer also has been accused by police of being involved in animal trafficking.

Farm workers can also be subject to physical and sexual abuse, and the AARMF has reported numerous cases of abuse by farm labourer to the Victorian Department of Primary Industries.

As well as the exploitation of farm labourers, the AAVF has also criticised the government for failing to address the welfare issues of farm labour, including the “high cost of living”, high food prices and a lack of access to health and welfare services.

There is no evidence to suggest that the welfare of farmworker animals is in danger.

In February 2017, Australia’s chief veterinarian, Dr Fiona Murray, warned of the “very real risk” that farm workers may suffer from mental health problems, but that was not enough to dissuade her from calling for the government to increase protections for farm workers’ rights.

But some animal rights groups have argued that the “dignity” of farmwork is at stake.

According to Animal Welfare Watch, Australia is home to one of the highest levels of farm animal cruelty in the world, with more than 2,000 animals killed for food each year.

And the cruelty of farming, which is often fuelled by “human greed”, is not confined to the farming industry.

In a statement, the organisation argued that “farm animals are used to generate money and sell products for the wealthy, and are forced to perform painful and degrading work for little pay and with little safety or nutrition”.

“The abuse of farm animals has no place in modern agriculture, where the profits are so huge,” said Animal Welfare.

“[But] in recent years, the cruelty has spread to some of the most vulnerable, most vulnerable members of society, including women, children and the elderly.”
