Thesesound lovely don’t they? Bring back memories.
On the surface milk sounds healthy, nutritious, pure, and all in all a great idea.
Are you picturing meadows where cows roam free, ruminate, make happy moo sounds?
Do you see baby calves playing in thick green grass, while farmers watch on in utter bliss?
Sounds a little too good to be true. It is.
The truth couldn’t be farther from imagination.
The dairy industry has systematically propagated lies to make you believe that milk comes from happy cows.
When you consume milk in any form,you’re buying into cruelty–male calves starved or slaughtered, repeated artificial impregnations– no different from rape,infant calves separated from their mothers at birth, short tethers and concrete floors.
You’re buying into propaganda– that cow’s milk is the perfect food. Milk is only a short term nutrient for new born calves, it’s not meant for humans.
You’re buying into a tetra pack of white lies and cruelly neglected cows. Imagine a dairy on an industrial scale. There’s no space for meadows or green grass. There’s space only for machines. Fifty years ago a cow produced 2000 tonnes of milk, today it’s up to 50,000 tonnes. How? Why?
Here’s the truth and it’s not quite as sweet as a Strawberry Milk Shake…
…The dairy industry isn’t just milking cows, it’s milking you.
