(I'm approaching this post purely from an animal welfare perspective)

I raged the when I saw this commercial; they are disgustingly mocking what happens to dairy cows. But hey, should I expect any less from a society that came of with putting the info about missing children on milk cartons?

Here's real life

And since I don't want to be a huge ball of negativity, here's a cow being reunited with her calf smiley.gif

edit: well it took me several tries but I think I finally got all the videos imbedded correctly. Also, I do have a bit of respect for the milk company for allowing all those comments.

A plastic hutch is no substitute for a mother. Replace dairy, not mothers.

I don't think most mainstream milk drinkers would even associate the milk commercial with what happens to dairy cows. A surprising number of people aren't aware that cows have to have a calf in order to produce milk--in other words, they just exist to "make" milk for us. 


That's why the cow is so sad. She existed only to "make" milk for the little girl, she has no life or children of her own. 

slops, gloops, and gruels.
