Not your mom, not your milk. Most people don’t think there is any harm in drinking cows milk. Most people don’t know that drinking cows milk causes separation of mothers from their babies. In order for a female cow to give milk, she needs to be either pregnant or have just given birth. So in the dairy industry female cows are forcibly impregnated by a tool known as a ‘rape rack’ where a cow is restrained as a device containing bull semen is shoved into her anus. (The dairy ‘farmer’ also shoves their entire arm in there at the same time) When the baby calf is born it is immediately ripped away from its mother, so that the mothers milk can used for humans instead. the calf is fed some other unnatural diet, and the mother thrashes and cries as her baby is take. Away. Mother cows often stare in the direction that their cow was taken, for days. The mother is then incessantly milked by a machine instead of nursing her baby. The baby calves are motherless from the day of their birth. The mother will be milked endlessly, until she can no longer produce milk, at which point she is raped again and the process repeats. And this process continues for about 7 years until the mother is considered ‘spent’, meaning the physical harm has taken its toll and she can no longer produce babies/milk anymore. At this point she is slaughtered for meat. (Cows natural lifespan is about 20 years). If the baby calf is a female she will have the exact same fate as her mother. If it’s a male calf, it will slaughtered for meat. This is dairy. This is dairy cheese and dairy milk and dairy yogurt. And if you didn’t know, now you know.
