Now... I'm not about to go into all the reasons these cow sculptures are a gigantic farce because I've already done that before and before that. But what I will do is admit to a lot of skepticism about the alleged butter caper. The story just doesn't make much sense! Wouldn't a group that was able to scale a wall and sneak past guards have more "destruction" in mind than a sign taped to a coagulated fatty substance?
Or would it be more reasonable to think that these Iowa animal ag folks had a sneaky idea to promote their absurd butter-cow/dairy/egg and pork politics?
Truth is... Doesn't matter much what you eat at the Iowa Fair - As long as it's got an animal part or secretion in it...Yep... There's "activism" and "politics" all around butter. So says the winner of the "dairy princess crown". She likes to go to day care kids and teach them all about cheese and "milking units".
But before, during and after all this politicking and partying with meat, eggs and dairy there's stories that bring truths back in focus... Like what I see in this cow's milk propaganda photo:
Sure the kids are curious... Who wouldn't love a new born calf? Especially the mother who bore him?
But here's a boy with new leather shoes... Meanwhile a girl's pink leather sneaker is being stepped on by the poor, confused, mother-less baby calf... Contrast this with the reality that humans actually cut the feet off of baby calves... Sometimes when their still alive! And bash their skulls to make them not be so... And you've got a culture totally at odds with who they want to be and who they really are!
All of it is sickening and shameful!
Don't like the dishonesty in Iowa, in dairy or in your own life? Then quit with the unnecessary and unkind animal killing and animal eating!
