“I don’t know what she says to him, but he responds to her like no other steer I’ve seen,” Mazoch said. “When he hears her voice, or even just smells her, you can see his whole body just relax.”
Lyle Williams said Oatmeal has “an unbelievably keen sense of smell and hearing. He’ll follow his nose to food, and to his pen in the barn.”
Though especially close to Oatmeal, Kendyll knew the steer would eventually be sold and trucked away as 964 pounds of prime beef.
And he was sold for beef. HOWEVER he is still alive, and waiting at the slaughterhouse. Rowdy Girl Sanctuary has started a fundraiser to get him out. If they are unable to save Oatmeal, the funds will be put aside to help another FFA child save their beloved animal. After all, these kids are compassionate…but are forced to push that aside by their parents and the animal agriculture industry.

He slept on the grass verge every night :)
For our little Benjamin, who loves to play with his toy farm. :))

The recently restored model shown here depicts plump steers being driven
- reluctantly it seems - to a cattle count or perhaps to slaughter. The
artist has taken pains to include lifelike details so that the robust
animals contrast dramatically with their slouched, weary, and
