Dairy Cows

Ignorance Isn't Bliss

These are babies, they are not garbage. They are thrown out like trash so humans can drink their mother's milk. People keep telling me that the veal industry isn't a huge industry and people don't eat it that much, but that's not the issue... veal is a bi-product of dairy so as long ass the dairy keeps coming the baby's are going to keep coming and so is the killing.

Dairy

How's that cheese taste now?

Beaten cow. Bloody head. Displaced, swollen-shut eye. Suffering on a factory farm. Here's your milk...or maybe your dinner. OK with you?

4 DAIRY CALVES ~ One California dairy cow beat out some major odds when she gave birth. The cow produced four healthy, female calves in one litter. The chance of that occurring are one in 179 million.

The male calves are not wanted in the dairy industry. They are are just used to keep the moma cow pregnant to produce milk, cheese, sour cream, ice cream, yogurt. Please remember this fact. You can make a difference every single day with your choices.

“This is my favorite photo in the world - me and Linus, born to a dairy cow and ordered to be killed when the farmer saw he was a male (and thus useless in the dairy industry). A compassionate individual intervened, and he was brought to a sanctuary. I met him when he was a few days old and 60 pounds, and he would always try to sit on my lap. Today, 7 years young and 1500 pounds, he still tries to sit on my lap.” - Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

Another reason that I'm vegan, which is quite simple: ONE THIRD OF ALL DAIRY COWS HAVE MASTITIS. That means poor mama cows HURT from having their breastmilk pumped from them to feed non-vegans .. and consequently, the milk contains PUS because of the bacterial infection ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++ ++

Just when you think the dairy industry can't get any SICKER you learn udder flaming is a technique used to remove hair. Because you wouldn't want any cow hair in your milk to remind you what you're REALLY drinking.

Awww

Upinspire - Seriously, I never knew cows could be so happy. This might make you think twice about eating beef.

Cows produce milk for one reason: to nourish their young. Go vegan.

This is more common than you dare to believe!Who in their right mind would want to drink a glass of this??? What you see is severe mastitis and udder necrosis; results from chronic infections. This is just one of many inhumane aspects of the dairy industry.

Be the change!! You do not need dairy!! #GoVegan

trading suffering for fleeting pleasure

Saving this one because it is such a sweet picture. Many baby cows never get the chance to be with their mother because the milk is not for them anymore..it is for humans.

and yet they say veganism is extreme. okaaay...
