Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Dairy Cows~

 

One Voice

So you ask...
What's so cruel about Dairy?

Even though most people have never visited a slaughterhouse,........ the panic, dread, and terror that await innocent creatures, and the gruesome sights and sounds which emanate from these hidden "houses of death" are not at all difficult to imagine.
What many people do not realize is that these same horrors are the fate of every factory-raised dairy cow

Milk's Got Plenty of....Cruelty

A dairy cow's life is a continuous cycle of impragna-tion, birth, and milking to provide one thing only -- a constant supply of milk for human consumption and profit. She will be milked for 10 months out of the year, including seven months of each of her consecutive nine-month pregnancies. Two to three times a day, seven days a week, she will be attached to an electric milking machine, like just another cog in a factory. Then she will be returned to her cramped, narrow, concrete stall to do nothing but await the next milking.

Within hours after giving birth, the cow's calf will be forcibly taken from her. Male calves will be sold for pet food, killed at just a few days old to make "bob veal", or raised for beef.

Others will be auctioned to producers of "formula-fed veal".
On veal farms, male calves are confined in tiny crates to restrict their movement in order to keep their muscles tender. They are fed an iron-deficient diet which causes severe anima but which keeps their flesh white, making it more valuable when they are sold for meat. Subjected to total sensory deprivation and stripped of any measure of joy, 20% of veal calves will die before even reaching the typical slaughtering age of 16 weeks.
So think about it. In every glass of milk,
is a slice of VEAL

The female calves will be sequestered in tiny stalls in preparation for their enslavement to the dairy industry. When they are old enough to be artificially inseminated, they will begin the drudgery of a dairy cow. Their mother will be promptly put back into intensive milk production, where she will remain at risk for numerous stress related illnesses, infections, and diseases, many of which can be fatal.

A dairy cow will survive a mere four years of this cruel, hollow life, whereas under natural conditions, she might live up to 25 years. At the end of her days, when she can no longer keep up the demanded level of milk production, drained and exhausted, she will be packed onto a crowded truck for transport to her final destination -- the slaughterhouse.........
After a life of slavery and servitude, her retirement gift will be to end up like her fellow "food animals" -- on somebody's plate.
So be aware...if you continue to drink milk while unwittingly clinging to the myth that it is benignly begotten, you should be outraged to know that 40% of America's hamburger is made from "spent" dairy cows!

New life enters upon the earth
but greed fouls the precious birth
He takes his first baby breath
unknowing of his destined death

Mother protects him all she can
but she's powerless against man
As soon as he was able to stand
he met the harsh human hand

To the dairy farm he is waste
mother's milk he'll never taste
All of her milk we humans take
he's denied mother for dairy's sake

He arrives at the farm for veal
from innocent birth to someone's meal
In his lonely, barren crate he cries
hopelessness and terror in his eyes

His would-be loving mother
has frantically lost another
Her relentless bellows easily heard
and her anguish clear without word

Dairy kills ~ that's the deal
but the solution is to boycott veal?
Break the chain at its start
don't have dairy ~ have a heart
