Vegan Baby!!!!

You should ask yourself what they do to meat producing animals if they do this to cows. Yes, they fired these employees, but do you see in what place this cow are living, and you drink their milk and think that you just got a healthy product, oh boy.

More and more people will stop eating meat and milk and if they prevail and if they start to read etiquette on food and really think what they put in their mouth this place would be a better world.

Two of aunts used to have dairy farms and I have never seen anything like this before. I used to visit every weekend as a kid and never saw any real cruelty like this. It is not normal for farmers to be like this. This is abnormal and something is wrong. For a start there should not be so many downer cows. In some of those cases they are possibly trying to get them back up again as if they are down for too long they have trouble ever getting back up again as their muscles atrophy. Often when they go down they never get back up again. But if they go down after calving they may just need a calcium shot. But those mongrels could not care less. There appears to be a dietary or nutrient problem there.
What I believe is that there should be a limit on the number of dairy cows a farmer can own or milk to ensure cows are properly looked after. Milk prices for farmers should be higher so that they can make a living off less cattle. Cattle are flesh and blood and are intelligent and need to be in a proper herd environment. They need to be talked to and they need to know that someones cares about them. When you get to know them as domestic animals and pets they are not that much different to a dog or cat. You wouldn't be that cruel to a dog would you?
Milk is a wonder food and you can virtually live on it. But we need to pay a fair price so that farmers can treat cows as individuals and not machines. You can tell that I have cows can't you!

Some people wonder why some vegans get so angry toward meat eaters, I think one of the reasons is they love their own sense of taste more than they care to even look at what is happening or where their food comes from. A video like this is what turned my husband and me around and the guy said "nothing tastes that good".

We had to stop and think, the pleasure of taste was leading us to not care and refusing to look when someone shows you the truth is ignorance that you choose for yourself.

Cows make best friends, they are warm loving creatures I had been around them all my life, ones that know you follow you around like a dog.

yes it is true that the larger the operation...and they are all being bought up...the worse the conditions. As for milk being a "wonder food" no more than anything else, 2 tablespoons of nut butter provides all the benefits of 1/4 cup of cheese. I like to have it on apple slices. I love almond milk.

The problem is we eat for fun and not to feed our bodies properly, we don't need most of what we eat. They make money from us by creating addiction and habits, like i said when you stop the salty sugary stuff and eat natural foods you start quickly to love natural tastes and hate that other is all habits.

I won't watch it - saw this story on the news the other night - couldn't even watch the edited version

Not feeling very philosophical after watching this. I mean seriously what's with the brutality? Someone make this make sense for me.

I wish I could - mankind is not very kind sometimes

These stories are starting to change the industry - though we're still very far from seeing the end of these abuses

If it helps - several of the workers involved face prosecution - the dairy fired everyone (if I remember the story accurately) and it will work to make sure that this doesn't happen on any of their member farms again

Ag-gag laws make it more and more difficult to bring this sort of thing to light - we need to work on that end of it

The state I'm in-ashamed to mention now- has a "Ag-gag" bill.

The bill’s sponsor says this video is the work of “agri-terrorists” bent on harming the industry. The activists counter that they’re just exposing animal abuse.

The penalty would be a misdemeanor charge punishable by a year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

It is exposing abuse. With pictures, videos, testimonials, countless cases of industry abuse would still be going on.

At least it's moved to being challenged and I hope it happens in other states as well and course positive results:

Green Light to Constitutional Challenge to Idaho Ag-Gag Law September 5, 2014

Late yesterday, a federal court in Idaho denied the state’s motion to dismiss our constitutional challenge to Idaho’s Ag-Gag law. The court’s 33-page ruling affirms that Idaho’s statute—which criminalizes whistleblowing at factory farms—may violate the First Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

Would suggest similar in states that have yet to challenge a bill for those interested in the cause.

Being deemed an “agri-terrorists” have to be really careful how to word my distaste about it when corresponding about it.
