Land O’Lakes TV Spot Plops Into Philly

Written by PETA | May 5, 2010

We’re betting the dairy farm that the people of Philadelphia will be swapping out their 2 percent milk for deliciously nutritious soy milk (or rice or almond milk) after seeing this PETA public service announcement (PSA), which began airing in the Philly area yesterday:

Last September, PETA unveiled our five-month undercover investigation of a Pennsylvania-based factory dairy farm that supplies Land O’Lakes. Although we brought the abysmal conditions to Land O’Lakes’ attention, the company has done nothing to address the abuse behind the butter. And the Pennsylvania legal system failed to spread any brotherly love—much less protection—to cows on dairy farms, which means that it’s up to us to stop this stomach-churning cruelty.

Please pressure Land O’Lakes to implement and enforce the 12-point animal-welfare program that PETA has recommended. And, of course, it goes without saying that you should keep all dairy products out of your grocery carts, right?

    Where’s now the picture of the green pastures the commercials show us??? Shame on you Land O’Lakes let the cows go out in the sunshine!!!

    If it went without saying fortunately PETA wouldn’t have to exist. The average person takes for granted that nonhuman animals don’t have complex enough bodies to feel pain really they believe animals don’t feel pain and that humans are supernaturally endowed with the ability to suffer. That misconception should be battled… we’re far from being able to claim ‘it goes without saying that dairy shouldn’t be used’.

    I never could stand the taste of cow’s milk. My mother made us drink cow’s milk at every meal when I was a kid and the only way I would drink it was if it was so cold it caused brain pain the cold masked the taste. Now I drink vanilla or chocolate Silk soy milk.

    Heartbreaking! The only way to stop this kind of abuse is to go vegan. I did it 7 years ago and I lost 50 lbs my doctor says I’m his healthiest patient and most importantly I no longer carry the guilt of making someone else suffer for my taste. Thanks for telling the world PETA!
