dairy-cruelty

  1. Since female mammals can only produce milk during and after pregnancy, we shove long steel devides into their vaginas with our bare hands once a year to inject them with bull semen.
  2. The calves are taken away after birth to prevent them from drinking the milk that will be sold to the public.
  3. The male calves are sent to the veal industry where they are kept in small stalls or tiny crates. Minimal to no movement is allowed; this prevents muscle development, which keeps their flesh extra tender for your enjoyment.
  4. The machines suck the cows dry several times a day - most of these cows have severe infections, and the pus gets sucked out along with the milk.
  5. A single cow emits more environmentally harmful gases than a car. 
  6. Some cows spend their entire lives standing on concrete floors; others are crammed into massive mud lots.
  7. Cows have a natural lifespan of about 25 years, but the conditions they now live in lead to disease, lameness, and reproductive problems that render cows worthless to the dairy industry by the time they are four or five years old, at which time they are sent to the slaughterhouse.
  8. We are the only species to drink milk after infancy.
  9. Cow’s milk is the number one cause of food allergies among infants and children. 
  10. Milk and other animal products may lower your lifespan more than smoking.

I’m currently involved with a campaign against the cruelty of the dairy industry, our aim is to get these two billboards in the publics eye around Adelaide for a full year. We cannot do this without funding, please if you have any money to spare at all, donate on our gofund page.
This campaign and these billboards are important, they are exposing the truth that the dairy industry tries to hide, that calves are killed and cows are harmed for their milk. It features actual rescued animals from the dairy industry, and without your help, they can’t continue this campaign or any of their vital work.

Dairy is one of the cruelest industries, and with your help we can highlight this to the general public. I know money is tight for everyone, but if you could spare even a few dollars, it all adds up.
Will you continue to sit there and do nothing while the dairy industry steals calves and kills them? or will you help to fight this?

Calf Induction

An increasingly common occurrence in the dairy industry, calf induction is the process in which mother cows are prematurely brought into labour, so that dairy farmers earn their money sooner and more efficiently.

Many calves, as a result of extreme prematureness (birthed 8-12 weeks early) are unable to survive, dying during birth or being stillborn. Those that do survive are killed, usually bludgeoned to death by blunt metal objects.

This is fucked up, right? How can we stop this? Go vegan, and stop paying people to kill.

Message me for more info and advice.

Just put at least 50 different posters like this around my neighbourhood.
If you are looking for some easy activism, just print some of these (found on the evolve website, but this one I made) and carry them around with you, pop them up at bus stops or wherever lots of people will see them!
This one I put up yesterday and went to check today and three slips were torn off!
That’s 3 people that will now think about the cruelty involved in dairy (Maybe more that didn’t take slips and looked it up on their phone)

Like all mammals, cows only produce milk to feed their young. Humans are able to consume all the milk and dairy they want (but don’t need) only by keeping cows pregnant and lactating, then taking away the calves for whom the milk is intended. In natural herds, the powerful bond between mother and calf persists long after the calves have matured. But on all dairy farms, big or small, organic or free-range, calves are forcibly taken from their mothers within a few hours of birth. This cruel separation is devastating for both of them. Male calves are killed for veal, while female calves are kept separated and fed milk substitute until they are old enough to replace their mothers. Dairy cows are slaughtered for ground beef at a fraction of their natural lifespan. There is no such thing as humane dairy.

Disgusting! @Mercy For Animals’s undercover investigation finds horrific cruelty to cows on a dairy farm in New Mexico. The video shows workers kicking, punching, stabbing, whipping, and dragging cows too sick to stand. The footage was immediately turned into law enforcement, as workers were in clear violation of anti-cruelty laws. Four are being charged with cruelty to animals.

Don’t agree with how these cows are treated?? Go vegan!

“But we still had to make a living, and I soon realized I couldn’t possibly make enough money from the amount of milk that I was producing and then have the babies go for pets. There were just so many babies, every year you have to have babies. And not very many people are interested in buying goats as pets.

In certain communities, it’s tradition to have baby goat meat during the Easter holiday. So our farm was overwhelmed every Spring by people looking for baby goats. We would weigh the 25-35 pound kids, and the customers paid. They were then hogtied and literally thrown into a trunk or the back of a pick-up truck like a piece of luggage. Jim soon was saying, "I will carry the goat,” and he would gently put the goat into their vehicle. One day we were standing by the gate of the goat barn, listening to one of our baby goats being driven away, crying in the trunk of the car. It was at this horrific moment that Jim and I looked at each other with tears in our eyes and began our journey to a no-kill life.“ A former cow and goat dairy farming couple on why they no longer raise or consume animals for food.
