I love milk and diary product, but I do not want to be responsible for such actions. Milk can be taken from cows without taking away and killing their babies or killing any other form of life. This is what we should reach to! The laws on Diary farms and the system have to change in this regard !

Because of the HUGE demand of cow's milk, there's no way farms can let babies be with their moms because they'll be drinking all the milk and not enough to sell and they cannot keep the male ones, so they are killed. If you don't like what's happening to them, don't wait for a miracle, but just switch to other plant milks. There are soy milk (tastes great) , hemp milk (has Omega 3 and 6), Almond milk, rice milk. They come in vanilla, chocolate, plain and so yummy! You can also cook and bake...

why would you need it. milk is for infants. Were you not weaned. Cows milk is for calves. Try the wonderful dairy free milks. delicious.

There are so many vegan alternatives now that there's absolutely no reason to continue consuming dairy. Our family favorite is Flax milk. You can buy it at Sprouts and it's AWESOME!

I thought that most people realized that milk is meant for the baby cows and not for humans. Wouldn't it be sad if one day, through reincarnation, we became the cow or some other animal? I am serious about this. Wouldn't it be interesting if we all had a chance to be the cows, the sheep, the chickens and all the other animals that go through a horrible death for human consumption. Wouldn't that be interesting karma if those that hurt animals ended up BEING the animals in the next life?

soy milk taste 100 times better than anything that comes from an animal. no animals are mutilated or tortured or tormented or manipulated to produce soy milk. and its 100 times better for your body than the disease and poison and pus and blood and bacteria in your precious jug of milk.

Etian Chris, I agree with you but also with the others - however taste of cow milk is different from soy (which I like) and from other vegetal milks. Realistically, we can encourage people to become vegans, but this won't be enough. Is there a way to develop sustainable dairy production? Of course, slow down the consumption/ production will be the first thing, but are there labels for "sustainable dairy products or beef" ? I live in Europe (Italy and Sweden), and I have stayed in France for...

I live in Europe (Italy and Sweden), and I have stayed in France for 1 year and spent some holidays in the UK and Germany. However, I have just seen the "Organic" green label on chicken and sometimes on pork or beef, and of course on eggs or dairy products, but I am not sure that "Organic" means also that the animal are treated in the less possible painful way. Please let me know! Thank you a lot. Elisa

I think that all of you need to have your heads checked.... As a dairy producer we do not put them on a 3foot chain so that they loose muscle. This is asinine. Just like most of these comments. These babies are the most important animals on a dairy farm. I love how you all take things out of context. But don't understand cows or dairies work. So sad. These babies will be the prize of the farm and the top milkers due to the vitamins and milk they get from their Mama's. No they don't...

These babies will be the prize of the farm and the top milkers due to the vitamins and milk they get from their Mama's. No they don't drink from a tit. They get the colostrum which is milked out of all four tits so that mastitis does not occur. For most of you, you would not understand that all cows don't have maternal instincs and there are cows if a calf is left on that die because they are not allowed to suck. So enough. Why don't you all pick up a cause that is needed. Where little girls as old as 14 and younger are charged with adultery when they are raped by men and whipped to death. This is just infuriating!

They need to let people know this, if I would have known this I would have changed years ago. Now who knows if I've caused the death and cruelty of a poor innocent cow. But who would have thought, I always thought cows naturally gave milk and had to be "milked" or it was bad for them. What the hell man, & you always see commercials were the cows are treated so good, never the horrid side.

I'm lactose intolerant so I can't have dairy at all, in Asia they do not use cows milk for anything really..it's my understanding humans aren't really meant to drink cows milk or consume large portions of dairy. The way that dairy farmers are treated none the less is shit. Even if I wasn't lactose intolerant I still wouldn't eat dairy.

my wife is from china and the drink milk and actually have the largest dairies in the world there and are also one of the largest importers of milk

I agree with you Etian, surely there is a way of getting milk from cows without this terrible treatment of not only the cows but their poor little calves, not even getting a first drink of colostrum!

Of course the calves get to drink from mom, because they would die without the colostrum. People shouldn't believe everything they read, see or hear. The video doesn't show the calf being taken right from the womb. It's not a wobbly new born baby. I can't believe this video is getting this much response. If that mother cow didn't trust the farmer she could have easily killed him. That tells me she is a well cared for and well treated animal.

These poor sweet little babies. I'm heartbroken for them. Becoming a vegetarian sound more like a reality now that I read this. How can people treat these precious creatures so insensitively? Cold heated, & so cruel. Shame on people. This is a total sin.

There is nothing sicker than consuming cow's milk. Would you drink your dog's or cat's milk? Of course not, because it's disgusting! And please tell me again why woman's milk is disgusting and cow's is not? Not to mention the list of diseases that comes with it...
