Every time you eat a burger remember...it was a cow that was killed. dont like it...become a vegan.
half of you that cry foul about this(even though you should)probably dont have a crap about your fellow humans.
its just a running theme with these pro-animal groups.
Like peta....when during katrina they rescued the ANIMALS instead of there fellow human beings.

I would want to say something really offensive and appropriate but it would just be removed due to the rules here, so i just say this: you have much to learn.

This has nothing to do with vegetarian debates.. I recommend you watch the movie Avatar, maybe that would help you grow up and teach you how to treat animals respectfully even though you enjoy your daily burger.

I am vegetarian actually already, have been for most of my life.

I do agree with you on this one point, if you think cruelty to animals is wrong why do a lot of you still eat meat?

What? Sure, animals do get slaughtered and eventually become part of our diet, but that doesn't mean that they deserve to be tortured. It's devastating. They already seem to have really crappy lives and then some person ends up beating the hell of it for shiggles.

This shouldn't be going on in with humans, either, but you don't see cows stomping on heads and beating the hell out of people.

As much as I don't like the fate of an animal to end up at a slaughterhouse, I do enjoy meat a lot. Either or, I can't be bothered if you're gonna try and push across this vegetarianism crap. If you want to participate in it, then more power to you, but it doesn't make meat eaters hypcorites if they don't condone animal cruelty but enjoy eating meat.

I am in just total shock and disgust. These aren't even people, less than people. This makes me literally sick to my stomach, how can someone be so cruel? These people should be given the death sentence, they don't deserve to go on living and treating animals like that. No amount of money could ever make up for the cruelty done here, it's just sick and disturbing to think these "sub-humans" are doing this. It's even more sickening to think of the possibility of others doing it and not getting caught.

Poor cows, poor humans... Really, IMHO they're one in the same, only thing is I don't eat human.

Yes, I eat meat and have no inkling to ever be vegan. I don't like to think that the cow I got my steak from spent it's last months on earth with no respect for the fact of the sacrifice it's giving to us.

As for human beings, you're partially right. I don't give a crap about the value of a human's life when they do horrid acts against humans and animals. As for the rest of the general population, it's indifference.

I like the thought that we hold dominion over the animals, but that begins to change when we lose respect for animals and what they do for us.

I read the article but I can't bring myself to watch the video, the description is bad enough.


I hope the workers involved are fired, brought up on charges and prosecuted.

How could anyone stomp on a little baby calf's head. The ultimate in human scum. What a jerk!

I had to stop watching after a few seconds.

Some people actually have no souls.

I was raised on a dairy farm and cows are like dogs, they are affectionate creatures. The guy stomping on that poor calfs head is a real bully.

Sad.

Can anyone find out who the parent company of Conklin Dairy Farms is? I would boycott this dairy or do something to wake them up (money talks).

One can only hope the people involved are brought up upon charges.

However folks, this is quite common procedure, read "Slaughter House" by Gail Eisnitz - If you eat meat or by dairy you are supporting this industry that treats sentient beings with no respect or kindness.

If you support this industry you share in the karma.

I do eat eggs, cheese and some chicken, but I try to buy from farms that at least say they allow their animals free range and treat them with some amount of respect.

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” Mahatma Gandhi

Stuff like this would stop if enough people stopped buying from industries that allow this stuff to go on.

Conklin Dairy, can't seem to find out about them. Wonder if they are a part of Dean Foods? Again, watch the video and know with industrialized farming (big corporate farms) this kind of stuff goes on commonly.

On our farm, we never would have allowed anyone to touch our cows in this manner.

My consumption of meat does not contradict my views on animal cruelty. Before I eat any food I make a thought to give thanks to the animal for its sacrifice.

When did farms become so large and apparently not dependent on their product that they can afford to damage, wound or even kill an investment like a dairy cow? They aren't cheap and they need to produce for a long time to be profitable.

This would like a truck driver dependent on his salary as a truck driver slamming into a tree with his truck for fun.

This departure from an agrigarian society is going to be the end of us all.

Okay, I'd hate to argue about this because I know how some people feel about animal rights (I feel rather strongly for them as well) but it is not cruel to kill an animal outside of the fact that death in and of itself can be considered cruel. The typical argument goes that it is life too and so we shouldn't kill them to eat them, but plants are alive too. Fungus is alive. Microbes are alive. It's inconsistent to denounce killing animals to eat while believing eating plants is any better.

I'm a meat eater. I don't eat meat 3 times a day 7 times a week. Usually I'll have a solid meat helping every 2 or 3 days. But damn it, animals need to be treated good. This isn't even just an ethical thing, this is a culinary thing! Animals that are treated well their whole lives taste better! Stress destroys fat and sugar, without those two things the meat isn't tasty damn it!

It solely depends on how the animals are treated when they are raised and alive, as well as the method of death. There are methods that aren't overly cruel when killing animals. And even then, in the end death is cruel. There is no way to avoid it. What matters is how you treat the death. Take Ted Nugent for example. He loves guns. He loves hunting. And he also loves animals. To paraphrase him, you use everything the animal gives you and you give the earth back twice what you took from it. This might sound crazy, but if everyone was more like Ted Nugent I honestly think the world would be, at the very least, a cleaner, nicer place to live. Yeah, Ted #ing Nugent. I went that far.

On the people in the video, well, I can't really say I'm shocked and I haven't even watched the video. I've seen it all before. Humans can be disgusting. People like to think we're beasts of reason, but I ask whoever coined that phrase to amend it to "humans are beasts with the capacity for reason". Because people don't use reasoning very often. And I mean their OWN reasoning. Hell, this isn't even a here and now thing, 95% of humans never use their heads. Most go through life thoughtlessly unless some inconvenience comes along that forces them to use the one thing that differentiates us from all other life that we know, as we know it currently.

Quite right, we had Molly, Daisy, Rosy, Betsy, El Toro, Baby Joey (who looked exactly like the baby calf being stomped on).

We have to have protein, but there is no excuse for that industrial worker's behavior.

We need to find out who owns Conklin Dairy Farms and boycott them.

Money talks.

Boycott them? Nah, I think the best thing to do would be to stomp on the perps' head, beat at it with a crowbar and then poke at him several times with a pitchfork.

For whatever good it will do. I just contacted The White House and asked this be investigated further.

Possibly if a couple other people did the same it might carry a little more weight and at least you have done your part to try and ensure this stuff is noticed higher up.

Conklin is a federally funded farm so maybe contacting The White House might mean something.

The link is here: www.whitehouse.gov...

Also maybe there is a Dairy Association we can contact enmasse and complain. At least it's not being ignored.

Someone has to stand up for these poor creatures. I agree with Yummy, no body should treat any creature like this.

You can also contact Dairy Farmers of America here

With a link to the video and news article. (I did just now) and maybe if enough people started making a row stuff like this would lessen.

Now, with industrial farming this goes on every day, but it's not right.

I started eating a more vegetarian diet for health reasons, but as time went on the moral aspects of it grew on me. Of course other life must perish to preserve my own, but I have become mindful of reducing the amount of cruelty to the best of my ability.

In order to raise an animal for food, much plant life must perish. The amount of plant life it takes to raise a farm animal could sustain me for much longer than the meat of that animal.

I also prefer eating fruits & fungus because harvesting these foods doesn't kill, or even damage the parent. I EAT PLANT BABIES NOM NOM NOM

As for the microbes, I of course use soap and cook my food to protect myself from dangerous microbes, but I sparingly use anti-bacterial products - not necessarily to reduce cruelty to those life forms, but because of the tendency to select for "super" bugs. But technically, I guess I am still minimizing cruelty to microbes lol.

Your right about murdering plants and fungi, perhaps we should all become fruitarians!


Seriously though thanks for the explanation, and don't worry I'm not going to start flaming over it, I believe its personal choice.

I do believe that any meat we do eat should be ethically produced as opposed to factory farmed, these cows are the very small tip of a very large iceberg.

There's a lot of suffering in your sausages

As some of the above posters said, it`s one thing to eat meat and still love animals, and another thing to condone animal cruelty.
I`m a vegetarian, but it is everybody`s decision regarding their choice of diet: want to be a vegetarian –fine, want to eat meat -fine. It`s your choice! Humans have been eating meat for a long time. Hunt for it or make it quick for the animals at farms.

I remember when I was a kid and I would go to my grandparents, in the mountains. They had lots of animals: chickens, pigs, ducks, turkeys, geese, cats, pigeons, dogs and two cows.
The greatest pleasure for me was to go with my grandfather or my dad up to the hills with the cows. The air was one of the purest mountain air I have ever breathed, you could smell the grass all day long! Then, at evening, we would come back to take the cows home. They were so gentle!
Also, my grandma thought me how to milk a cow at the age of 4. At first she caught me unguarded and sprinkled me a few times!


Now that is a part of my childhood that I`ll always remember.

I understand your inability to fathom why the camera man would just stand by and watch, but the simple fact is that he's playing the long game. You want to stop one cow from being abused, punch the abuser in the face. You want to stop all the animals on the farm from being abused for good, film the acts in their horrendous entirity and get the farm shut down and the farmer arrested for cruelty to animals. He was being smart, not cruel. It's a matter of thinking before you act.

As for the video, i got up to the point where he was hitting the cow with the metal bar and had to stop it.

I simply cannot understand the mindset of a person who can do this. Why do it? What could you possibly get out of it?

I am not a veggie and strongly believe in eating meat as an evolutionary nutritional requirement (plus, I like the taste), but at least give the animal the honour of a quick and as dignified as possible a death and waste as little of it as possible.
