The real price of dairy

This short video is so powerful. I couldn’t watch this and not share. How we allow this to happen, all the time, I don’t understand. How this is the norm… I can’t understand. Actually, this is by no means the worst of the dairy industry.

Humans are the only species that drink milk past infancy and the only ones who regularly drink another species’ milk. These poor, sweet, too-trusting-of-us cows. I’m so sorry I ever supported this. My heart breaks for every animal that suffers, especially at the hands of humans.

I hope people realize what they’re doing, what they’re supporting, what they’re paying for and that this becomes a thing of the past soon. Thank you Evolve! Campaigns for sharing this video.

    Oh hun, what a sad video. As humans we don’t think about where things come from, there’s a documentary on Netflix Cowspiracy about the same the cattle industry impact on the planet.

    Hope you’re well Eva :)

      Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting, Hanh! I hope people begin to question and figure out where things come from because there are huge consequences when we don’t. I’ve been meaning to watch Cowspiracy but haven’t yet! I hope you’re well, too!

    I hate that farming has been turned into an industry. I believe the only way to do it is to go back to a time when we respected the animal’s biological needs to be outside, rased on grass (cows and other ruminants) or their mother’s milk (calves and lambs etc) and roost searching for wils seeds, worms, etc (chickens). I hate that people get so focused on making this more “efficient” (translation: to make more money) that they ignore the most basic needs. Also with all the rah rah about CO2 emissions… if a;; calves were raised on their mother’s milk and all cows were allowed to feed on grass, which is their natural souce of sustenance, instead of crappy processed cereal flours and such, CO2 emissions would be cut down dramatically.

      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a thought-out response, Elisa! It’s so bizarre that basic needs are not respected and allowed to animals in the food industry, I agree. I don’t know how it was ever allowed in the first place, but I hope it starts to turn around drastically very soon!
