Group Will Pay for Ad on Truck to Counter California Milk Board's 'Bogus' Cow's Milk Campaign
Clemente, Calif. -- Prompted by reports that an old-fashioned Orange
County–based milk-delivery service is on the verge of a shutdown because of
rapidly rising gas prices, PETA has written to milkman Jimmy Pastor with an
offer that will help keep his business in the black: Deliver a tempting variety
of dairy-free milks and cheeses, and PETA will pay to place
an ad on his truck that services San Clemente, where the California Milk
Processor Board (CMPB) is based. PETA's proposed ad would address the CMPB's ad
campaign claiming that "Real Milk Comes From Cows" by depicting a cow
half-sunk in manure-laden mud next to the words "'Real Milk' Comes From Real
Sick Cows. Try Soy Milk." The ad also reminds people that "[u]p
to 50 percent of cows on dairy farms have infected udders."
milk' means real suffering for real cows kept on filthy
factory farms," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "'Real milk'
is waning in popularity—so by expanding his inventory of vegan milks and
cheeses, Jimmy Pastor would be making a great investment."
addition to udder infections, cows on dairy farms commonly suffer from
painfully swollen knees and hoof disorders—including foot rot, ulcers, and
abscesses—that can result in lameness and premature death. Consumption of cow's
milk has been linked to prostate cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
U.S. Department of Agriculture reports a steady decline in U.S. consumption of
cow's milk in the last few decades. While soy milk is the most popular
plant-based milk, almond milk sales increased by a whopping 79 percent in 2011,
and sales of other vegan milks, such as oat and hemp, are also on the rise.
Fortified plant milks contain high levels of essential nutrients, including
calcium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12 and have none of
the cholesterol, hormones, or cruelty associated with cow's milk.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
