So, I'm sure I'll get a ton of resistance, which is amazing considering that what I am saying is perfectly reasonable. This is one more reason to
stop consuming dairy products. At the very least, factory farmed dairy products The cattle are kept in filthy, confined, close-quarters
conditions and if you really believe otherwise you're a fool. If you really believe they are given veterinary care, you're a fool. If you really
believe all those cows are not mistreated, or at least some of the cows are severely abused, you're a fool. And if you really believe the milk in
your fridge didn't come from a factory farm or a factory farm subsidiary, you're a fool.
Here's my point. The cows are close-quartered, confined, a lot of the workers abuse them. Here's the reason: Time. They get in trouble for not
meeting production quotas, it's been proven in peer-reviewed studies that this psychologically causes many (but not all, a lot of these guys just
cant find other work and have families to feed) to take it out, so to speak, on the cattle. They DO hit the cattle, kick them, et cetera. The cattle
have untreated wounds that fester. They are given heavy doses of antibiotics to prevent infection-related losses, eventually the pathogens become
resistant (and don't kid yourself, MRSA is very common in feed lots, milking facilities, and killing floors.) If you really think the cows you see on
the side of the road are producing the 30,000 gallon+ of milk EACH per year, you're a fool. They are hooked up to siphoning machines day and night.
Artificially inseminated, fed cereals and corns, not grass. Cows may get grass for the first year of their lives while raised on ranches. After they
are sent to production facilities, that stops. It spreads to employees via the blood of the cattle, and apparently in the milk.
And now it's resistant because of the heavy dosing of antibiotics, which are not given under the care of a veterinarian. [as an employee of a local
tropical fish store, I was allowed to handle and use erythromycin, tetracyclin, doxycyclin, quinine sulphate, nitrofurazone, furazolidone, formalin,
malachite green, methyline blue, acriflavine, praziquantel, metronidazole, chloroquinine, etc) many of these are extremely dangerous and available by
prescription only for human use. But I worked at a fish store with no credentials and I was able to dose these fish, untrained, unsupervised, with
only a list of sick fish and what medicines they needed that day. Cattle have their meds administered by untrained employees.
People need to boycott these factory farms. Look at who owns them, and who runs them, and who makes laws about their regulation. Look at who wrote the
"animal enterprise terrorism act" and who runs the "animal enterprises" in question. In the US, if you are caught at a protest out of state that
causes an "animal enterprise" "economic damages" you are arrested as a terrorist, no different than if you'd bombed a church.
Boycott the factory farms. At the very least, support local/organic farmed products. Don't complain about price, eat less of it. It's not hard,
people. All of this is related and relevant.
I like what Alex Collier's andromedans allegedly said about our consumption. "Don't they realize they need this planet and they do not have another
