Three steers move through the holding pens this morning -- they are in a circular space commonly referred to as a "crowding tub" used when funneling livestock into an alleyway (in this case the ramp leading to the abattoir). Carcasses will be used in class and the meat will be sold, blood will go to a zoo's bat colony, and inedible materials will be composted.
