After tonight’s episode I don’t even know how I’m going to function at school tomorrow. My heart literally hurts. Glenn was the love of my life and he and Abraham both deserved better. They deserved much more.
Just like other mammals, cows produce milk to feed their calf.
A cow has to be pregnant first!!
Cows aren’t magical milk machines, and they don’t “give milk” so you have something to pour over your frosted flakes.
Cows have been giving birth and nursing their calves well before we started stealing it from them. Believe me, we’re not needed.
The only time a cow is uncomfortable is being in factory farms they’re given hormones to produce more milk than their bodies can handle. You think a farmer on a quaint farm waits 9 months to take milk from one cow to feed the masses? No, these cows are milk slaves, it’s a very fast very painful process. they’re impregnated back to back to back, they’re given lots of hormones, the calves are literally dragged away from their mums at birth and they suffer a lot of infections as well as mental and physical stress. As it’s not natural.
Dairy cows are “spent” and killed after a few short years and made into cheap hamburger meat. Veal is a product of the dairy industry. The meat and dairy industries work hand in hand.
I don’t care that your uncles friends brothers cousin has a little farm that treats their cows nice. That’s not how the popular milk and dairy products end up at your local grocery store. Dairy is bad for the planet, it’s immensely cruel and it’s bad for our health.
Get informed. Get unbrainwashed. Get weaned.
There’s plenty of delicious dairy-free ice creams and milks. If you need suggestions my ask box is always open and google is there.
