Herd of ‘Cows’ Sends Dairy Farmers Running

Written by PETA | December 1, 2011

When PETA’s herd of “cows” stampeded down the sidewalk in front of the Vancouver Convention Center, where the British Columbia Dairy Conference was taking place, the cow abusers inside nervously looked out the windows.

They sent the convention center manager outside to ask their worried questions: What were the cows planning to do? Come inside the building? The conference-goers had seen the Facebook page for the demonstration, and they were terrified!

Even though the bovines didn’t infiltrate the conference, the dairy farmers should have been scared of what they were doing outside. As throngs of passersby stopped to talk, they learned about how cows on dairy factory farms are repeatedly impregnated to keep producing milk, that calves are traumatically torn away from their mothers within days or even hours of birth, and that many male calves are imprisoned in tiny, filthy crates until they are slaughtered for veal.

When many of the passersby then expressed a preference for soy milk, rice milk, or almond milk, the cows were over the moon.

    Not milking a cow is very bad for the cows health. Small dairy farms treat their cowsmwith respect, like they treat pets. The cows get vet check-ups monthly and are fed with the most nutrient rich food to encourage the most milk posible. Taking away these small farms would crush the economy of Wisconsin, California, Minnesota, Illinois, and many other states. think about it.

    I have never myself been a fan of cow milk. Even as a child I thought it was really odd we drank breast milk from another species. I have found a very suitable staple and I use if for everything that uses milk. I still don’t drink glasses of it, but it is very good. It’s coconut milk. I never was a fan of soy milk, almond milk was alright, rice milk seemed so watery. I bake a lot and the coconut milk for me, has been the “cream of the crop”!
