De Partij voor de Dieren roept de Tweede Kamer op om zo snel mogelijk een importstop in te stellen voor kalfjes. Zo’n 800.000 tot 875.000 jonge kalfjes uit landen als Ierland, Letland en Denemarken worden jaarlijks naar Nederland gebracht. Na een kort en ellendig leven wordt hun vlees in 90% van de gevallen geëxporteerd. De Partij voor de Dieren staat niet alleen in haar oproep: ook een groep van 4.000 melkveehouders wil een importstop. De import van kalfjes groeit al een paar jaar en is het afgelopen jaar vanuit Ierland zelfs verdubbeld. Nederland is inmiddels de grootste kalfsvleesproducent van Europa.

Het aanbod van kalfjes in Nederland is zo groot dat de opbrengsten voor veehouders heel laag zijn. Volgens een melkveehouder die onlangs te zien was in een uitzending van Zembla over de kalverhouderij wordt er vaak voor gekozen om geen dierenarts te laten komen voor een ziek kalf. Aan lichte kalfjes verdient de melkveehouder niets. Hij moet hiervoor soms zelfs bijbetalen.

The Pinch
We are cycling, Jan likes to be on the pedals, my tongue is almost on the handlebar, not an ideal position. In the park is a short distance from the path, a work of art: a flathheye wooden structure in the shape of a clothespin. Jan never has an eye for art, I think it's funny, it looks like the pin is holding a mountain of grass and wants to take a closer look at it. But culturally barbarian Jan has no message to this. The underlying distance grows. “Hey, Jan, don't ride so fast! Take a look around you, enjoy nature!' Jan holds in for a moment, looks skitfully to the left. “I don't ride so hard for nothing. You see that giant pincher? Who stands for treachery. The ground is waving, the earth is moving, I'm telling you, something is not fluff!' 'That's just an art object.' “No, it doesn't look like art in the farthest distance. It's a giant pincher, you hear?? The Pinch of a Giant! And you see what it's on?' My heart is pounding, I have aroused his interest, now nonchalance feigning. “On a grassy shedding. What cares that?.' “Don't you feel the earth trembling? It's not an ordinary grass huvel, sure not!' “And, Jan, what do you think it would be??' “A disguised giant. He lies. He sleeps. restless. He sleeps onrustig. It would also make me restless when I lie under the sods of grass.' 'And the pincher who's definitely standing on his nose, 'I hear how ridiculous this sounds, his fantasy has taken a walk with him. “Hahaha, Jan, I think you've contracted a Danian contagion.' “Don't laugh! It is so. The pincher is on his nose.' “And then why?' “To stop the snoring, duh.' “And where do you get that wisdom from?' “Do you hear someone snoring?' 'No.' 'Well then! Facts don't lie. I'm telling you, we have to cycle fast before the giant wakes up.' “And why would the giant wake up?' “Everyone wakes up over time. Only in fairy tales sleeps a few hundred years.' 'There's no pin in there.. But wait, I want to take a picture of it first! You don't see a giant pincher every day.' 'I'll app to the other side of the park. There are also a few silly individuals watching, who can shoot a picture, we are also on.' 'Tight plan!' Jan sends the app and we continue our way. #shortstory
