The Truth Behind Dairy
Cows do not simply produce milk; they are mammals and will only produce milk for their babies. Once born, the dairy industry dictates the babies are soon taken away from their mothers and the milk intended for the babies is taken for human consumption.
The males, who will never produce milk, are considered waste products and are killed, many in the first week of their life.
Females may enter into the dairy cycle, and small or non-commercial heifers meet the same fate as the males.
Cows have an ancient knowing, a wisdom beyond their form. Animal behaviourist Dr Temple Grandin has said that the fear memories of cattle can never be deleted.
The kindly dairy farm worker (from where Clarabelle came) shared that the cows remembered which vehicle came and took their baby away shortly after birth. Other passing vehicles would get no reaction, until the one vehicle that took their baby would return.
If you love dairy products and don’t believe you can find an alternative, please remember this – mother cows love their babies many times more.
