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...

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...

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 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

For decades the dairy/veal industry has had the power. Lies, deceit, cruelty beyond imagination fuel this program. How anyone, once being made aware of the fact that Mothers and babies are torn apart with no regard, no mercy, can still continue to consume products born of grief, boggles my mind. Cows have the same emotions we do. Think with the heart of a parent. Dairy products are unhealthy, filled with chemicals, hormones, and other additives. But, the worst additive humans add to their...

Cows have the same emotions we do. Think with the heart of a parent. Dairy products are unhealthy, filled with chemicals, hormones, and other additives. But, the worst additive humans add to their bodies from consumption is sadness, hopelessness, heartache...all of the negative vibrations these beautiful, intelligent, loving animals put out as they suffer beyond words.

Here In INDIA .. We first let the calves drink and then milk the cow This bit from Rajiv Dixit’s Hoshangabad lecture settles the dispute over the debate on whether people drinking cow’s or other animal’s milk deprives its progeny from its food. Dairy animals like cow and buffallo actually produce 5 to 6 times more milk daily than what its progeny needs.

Vikas Kumar Singh, this is not the entire truth. Firstly, this was the case in ancient times when calves or baby cows were allowed to drink first but not so now necessarily. This might be the practice still somewhere but this cannot be generalised for each & every dairy farmer and the entire country. We live in an increasingly money driven world and India is also becoming like that. Secondly, nobody can afford to keep that many calves and grown up male ones at that, as the demand for fodder...

We live in an increasingly money driven world and India is also becoming like that. Secondly, nobody can afford to keep that many calves and grown up male ones at that, as the demand for fodder grows to feed them. They will be ultimately sold to someone and what is done to them after that is anybody's guess. The Sugarcane belt of U.P is filled with working Bullocks who are treated pathetically. When we make wrong choices we are contributing to a never ending cycle of brutality and cruelty. A cow has to be kept pregnant & lactating at all times to constantly produce milk which just wears her down Just go to Punjab & see what happens. We cannot wear blinders and believe this does not exist.

Mr Mehta, You Point well taken... So Emphasise on Animal care ... why cutting the consumption of milk.

Who ever started this cause is full of crap. My grandfather had a small dairy farm when I was a kid and dairy cows do not have to have a calf to produce milk. Who ever started this needs to get there facts straight. With all the problems in this world someone wants to start a worthless cause like this LMAO.

This is not how all diary farms are run so please do not think badly of all farmers. The life of a dairy cow is far from brutal so please stop sensationalising things for your own agendas.

The Mother Cow can only moo
she has no way to speak to you,
so I speak on her behalf to beg you mercy on the calf.
Her precious offspring newly born,
so heartlessly from mother torn
by people well trained not to feel,
her baby now is known as veal
Next step now is too obscene
mother on the milk machine.
Baby in a lonely crate
Oh mother cow how sad your fate.
when the mothers milk runs dry
and memory of her calf begins to die,
they impregnate the worn out mother
They need her to give...

So in labor once again,
only a mother knows the pain.
Once again the cow gives birth,
the sweetest little calf on earth.

so I speak on her behalf
to beg you mercy on the calf.

I have been using almond milk for a while now and surprise, surprise feel so much better for it. We are not designed to drink cows milk! Yes i love chees yoghurt etc. but we could all cut back. I had this conversation with someone recently on the subject of breast feeding. Human breast milk is made for human babies fact! The poor woman had no idea what went in to milk production, that a cow is "forceably Raped" by a vet generally, and then has to part with her young so that we can have the...

And she thought public breast feeding was disgusting!!!!!!!!!!! Dont get me started!!!!
