Take this article for instance. The headline says it all! "Dairy Farmers Profit From Kindness". You read that right! They are "kind" for providing their milking slaves medical care when they become injured. But my guess is if the care gets too expensive in relation to what they can milk out of the cow... She's headed to the kill floor for sure.
And then there's these "happy cows" from S.D. who are "like the sun worshippers on the Pacific Ocean in California" because they have beds made of sand. It's doubtful any one of these 1800 cows has ever seen the sun... But what the hay - It keeps consumers contented enough to continue purchasing dairy.
But I said things get ugly... Even uglier than this:
It's disgusting to steal babies away from their mothers... And pen them up in little igloos of isolation.
Even more gross is that, instead of drinking their own mother's milk as nourishment...
A truck comes around to feed them porcine plasma protein:
It's disturbing isn't it? Unweaned calves being fed pigs blood...
Yet time and again these "kind" cow-keepers and calf-takers present the idyllic image of wholesome purity. What could be more lovely than the peaceful setting below? A charming assortment of birdhouses amid the colorful flowers available at this veal operation. And the family... So clean-cut and upright they appear to be!
Obviously this man's family is very important to him... But he hasn't a care or worry about the families that he's destroyed...

So party away (for now) dairy folks... Just keep in mind there are abundant, affordable, satisfying, healthy and compassionate options:
Please do not contribute to any harm done to others by the animal industries.
Have a heart! Respect their lives and live your own ethically. Go vegan.
