The joint campaign by PETA, Gut Aiderbichl and Blue FarmAnimal welfare plays an important role for many when consuming plant-based drinks. Of course, it's no different on our farm.

Farm Facts about the campaign
Cow sponsorship at Gut Aiderbichl
For every 100 Oat Base Bio products sold, Blue Farm will sponsor a cow for one year on the farms of Gut Aiderbichl, thanks to your help.
Three strong partners united
Together with PETA and Gut Aiderbichl, we want to use our reach to give as many cows as possible a sheltered home and a dignified life.
Every sip counts
The goal of our campaign is to conclude 25 cow sponsorships together with you, PETA and Gut Aiderbichl by the end of November.
Our godfather cows
Arabella is one of 7 survivors after a major farm fire in 2014 that killed over 100 animals. After a long treatment, Arabella can live pain-free again and has recovered from the trauma over time.
Bärbelchen managed a spectacular escape before her "last ride". After a 2-kilometer run for her life, she ended up in a swimming pool, from which, however, she first returned to her home stable. Gut Aiderbichl heard about the failed escape and brought Bärbelchen to their estate.
Like many young calves that don't grow fast enough, Benny's life was to end a few weeks after birth. A young woman cared for the calf for months - until she became a mother herself and there was no more time. So Benny ended up at Gut Aiderbichl, where he enjoys a full, free life.
Büxi escaped from her farm and was untraceable for 3 months - until her tracks betrayed her in the first snow. Gut Aiderbichl tracked down the cow and took her in. Here she enjoys her newfound animal company.
Egon is a true free swimmer: In 2013, during the flood of the century, the Passau district office decided that cattle on the verge of drowning should be given the coup de grace. Egon swam away for his life until land was in sight again and was brought from where he was found to Gut Aiderbichl.
Ferdinand was born with 5 legs. The farmer took the initiative himself to find a worthy home for the little calf and turned to Gut Aiderbichl. Ferdinand was even allowed to bring his best friend Gustl with him to the sanctuary when it was discovered during pick-up that the two were inseparable.
Karli is not only "too small", but also has a limp. A good soul discovered the calf and took care of him. The discoverer contacted Gut Aiderbichl and thus saved Karli from premature slaughter and enabled him to live a sociable, long life.
Kathi is small in stature and therefore not suitable for livestock farming. Unlike many of her professional colleagues, Kathi's farmers deliberately decided against slaughtering her and turned directly to Gut Aiderbichl to give the cow a dignified life.
Lotti is a find from the Aiderbichl "community". A long-time visitor discovered a nearby farm with obviously poor husbandry conditions. She took care of some calves on the spot and made sure that they found a home at Gut Aiderbichl when the calves were to be sold.
Oskar owes his life to an animal-loving woman who was alerted to the fact that a motionless calf was lying within an unattended herd of cattle in the neighboring village. She contacted the farmer, who was temporarily out of town, and then took the calf home, where she nursed Oskar back to health.
As a 6-week-old calf, Purzel fell out of the transporter after being sold to the fattening farm. The drivers of the following car stopped and took care of the frightened animal on the spot. When the transporter returned, the rescuers did not release the calf and Gut Aiderbichl was finally able to buy Purzel from the fattening farm.
Resi represents the fate of many high-performance dairy cows. Often they are so exhausted after 6 to 7 years that they can no longer become pregnant and thus their milk dries up. As a rule, these cows end up on the slaughter bench. Resi was lucky to be found and rescued by Gut Aiderbichl.
Sandra comes from a farm that you would not wish on any animal. Her calf, because of which the owner originally contacted the estate, was emaciated with wounds in which maggots had already taken up residence. Gut Aiderbichl could no longer save the calf, but at least took Sandra in.
Sarotti is a leftover from the local flood of the century in Deggendorf in 2013. Many animals were temporarily housed at Gut Aiderbichl there at the time, when farms had to be evacuated. The farmer's wife, to whom Sarotti belonged, ended up asking the estate if her animals - and she - could stay there.
Stefan barely survived a major fire at a cattle farm in 2017. Seriously injured, he was cared for by a neighbor and a veterinarian. When he was feeling better, he was brought to Gut Aiderbichl for a long-term stay. Even today, his wounds have to be tended to on a daily basis.
Vronal was already destined for slaughter due to her small stature as a calf. However, she caught the eye of a woman who spotted the calf among the others and contacted Gut Aiderbichl when she heard of its impending fate.
Like Resi, Volga was a high-performance dairy cow. She was so emaciated that she could no longer become pregnant and thus gave no more milk. Like her fellow sufferers, she was thus destined for slaughter, but could be saved by the estate.
Since Glück had not become pregnant for years, she was to be slaughtered. What no one knew was that the cow carried a secret. On the morning of the planned slaughter, she gave birth to calf Rosa. The two were now allowed to move in at Gut Aiderbichl.
The aurochs calf Leona was rescued by Gut Aiderbichl at the last minute in 2015, together with 16 other cattle, and placed in their protection. Without the quick intervention, the animals, including small calves and highly pregnant cows, would have been slaughtered.
Peter Günther is a 5-year-old lovable brown cattle breeding bull and was supposed to end up at the slaughterhouse. However, the owners had grown so fond of the bull that they looked for a suitable place, which he found at Gut Aiderbichl.
Primo came with two friends from Switzerland. Dahomey cattle represent a very special breed, as they are the smallest cattle in the world. All three cattle found a home at Gut Aiderbichl.
Ruby gave birth to quadruplets in April 2021. Since they are small in stature, they were not suitable for breeding. Since quadruplets are extremely rare and they love attention and cuddles, they urgently needed a new home. Gut Aiderbichl took in mother Ruby and her quadruplets.
Sammy, the gentle giant, was born 12 years ago on a farm in Austria and raised there with the bottle. Thus, despite the not so easy start, he grew up to a handsome breeding bull. After many years of work, his owners had to part with him. They had promised that he would never have to go to the slaughterhouse. Now Sammy is spending his retirement as a breeding bull at Gut Aiderbichl.
In the neighborhood of a veterinarian, an elderly mare and a Limousin cow were kept in a pasture. The two broke out frequently and even ran around on the street at night. This went too far. While the horse quickly found a home, Nora's rescuer had to search a long time for a safe place. Nora now lives happily at Gut Aiderbichl's Moosfeldhof.
Gut Aiderbichls Mitarbeiter Christian war wegen anderen Rindern bei einem Landwirt im Stall. Als er am Stier Bandit vorbeiging, machte dieser, trotz seiner 40 cm langen Kette, auf sich aufmerksam. Er ging auf die Knie. Christian empfand diese Geste als Bitte, ihn zu befreien und als er später die Ketten löste, hüpfte Bandit vor lauter Freude durch den Stall und schmiegte seine Stirn an Christians Kopf. So verharren die beiden lange - so viel zur Aggression von Stieren.

More about the cooperation
Why is the promotion only valid for Oat Base Bio?
Since we launched the campaign on the occasion of our PETA Vegan Food Award, the winning product - Oat Base Bio - will be the focus of the campaign.
How much is donated per cow sponsorship?
The contribution for a one-year cow sponsorship at Gut Aiderbichl is € 120. Blue Farm donates €1.20 per Oat Base Bio sold, so we have to sell a total of 100 products to enter into a sponsorship.
What does a cow sponsorship at Gut Aiderbichl look like?
Gut Aiderbichl not only gives the cows a wonderful home in nature, but also a loving community of animal caretakers who look after the cows according to their individual needs and experiences.
Why is the cow sponsorship limited to one year?
True to our credo "big things start small", we are starting with this campaign and want to support the sponsorships initially for one year. However, our goal is to work together with Gut Aiderbichl in the long term.
What happens after the one-year cow sponsorship?
Don't worry: Cows have found a forever home at Gut Aiderbichl and are allowed to stay there for the rest of their lives. However, like most home farms, the estate relies on donations. This enables them to give even more animals a free, dignified life.
