PETA’s band of bovines had Georgia on their minds when dairy farmers and suppliers brought their propaganda-filled displays to the International Dairy Show in Atlanta.
Our “cows” told passersby what the dairy farmers wouldn’t—that cows are continually impregnated in order to force them to keep producing milk and that their babies are taken from them within days or even hours of birth. Many male calves are sent to veal crates, while females are sentenced to the same fate as their mothers.
Considering the plethora of delicious nondairy milks available, it’s easy to have our milk and save cows too.
Which cow-friendly milk gets your (and your cookie’s) vote?
