Have you ever wondered how your milk is been produced?
Cow’s (or goat’s) milk is destined by nature solely to feed their newborn babies.
In order for humans to consume milk, the following facts must take place:
0) Bovine semen collection from bulls
1) Raping the female by using a machine called “Rape rack”:
(More details here)
2) Stealing aggressively the new born from its mother:
3) In the meantime, the mother cow who is grieving for days or even weeks, for the loss of her baby, is being abused in order to give milk which will be stolen by humans to get profit out of it. Then, a new rape will take place in order to get pregnant again, and this will happen again and again until the day that she will no longer be able to do that, something that will result her killing at the slaughterhouse.
4) Male babies are considered completely useless by the dairy industry and thus, they are taken away from their mothers, stacked and imprisoned in boxes / cages in order to be unable to breastfeed and where they cannot move. By this way, the desired muscle atrophy and the development of dietary anemia leads to the preservation of the white-pink color of their flesh, thus satisfying the demand of the buying public for tender meat.
The fate of female babies is predetermined following the same violent path with their mothers. A consecutive cycle of rape, pregnancy, stealing of their babies, untold pain and a serial suffering of abuse.
Did you know that the main ingredient of ALL cheeses is rennet?
But what is rennet?
Rennet is produced in the stomachs of young animals (calves, lambs, goats) during breastfeeding. The only way to harvest it is to take the babies away from their mothers and to kill them immediately in order to take out their stomachs (specifically their 4th stomach).
Each and every time you purchase dairy products, you basically become part of a system which exploits innocent sentient beings who have the same right to live with you!
Please, acknowledge the inherent value of all animals!
