<div class="quote-block"><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:small;">In a bizarre PR stunt for Mason Dixon Farm, a woman won the chance to live the life of a dairy cow for a day as part of their <a href="http://standardspeaker.com/news/drums-woman-spends-day-in-the-life-of-cow-1.1221139#axzz1bdcEAsRO" target="_blank">V.I.P. Dairy Farm Experience</a>.<br>
Mason Dixon claims their cows are treated so well that they invite people to spend a day on their farm living like one. Winner Carol Yemola from Gettysburg seemed to have a great time. It sounds like Carol was treated to a manicure/pedicure and fed giant catered meals because Mason Dixon claims this is how their cows are treated. After the event Yemola told press, the cows looked so happy and content. Luckily Carol wasnt actually given the same treatment a typical cow receives, that would have been criminal.<br>
Dairy cows are forcibly impregnated so that they produce offspring for the meat and dairy industries but also so that they continuously lactate. A typical dairy cow is chained, confined, and hooked to painful mechanical milking machines 305 days a year. Cows are forced to produce 100 pounds of milk a day, 10 times more than they would naturally produce. The <a href="http://www.veganpeace.com/animal_cruelty/dairy.htm" target="_blank">real life of a dairy cow</a> is far more terrifying then Mason Dixon leads contest winners and the public to believe.<br>
Offering people the chance to live like a cow for a day is insulting to the cows who suffer on dairy farms. I can assure you, its not all manicures and catered meals. As frustrating as deceptive PR stunts like this can be, it does mean that the industry is scared of the truth and is having to stoop to new lows to try and fool people.<br><br></span></span></div>

When I first saw the title I immediately thought of all the things mentioned in the link. If they REALLY treated her like a cow for a day for publicity it would be like a porno/snuff film <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">

Well, the title sure is spot on. Bizarre is definitely the right word for this.

When I saw the 'Woman Treated Like a Cow for a Day', I thought it would be a veg*n AR stunt akin to people locking themselves in cages and starving themselves. I am both glad that this is not the case (for the woman involved), and annoyed at the ridiculousness of what actually happened.

Going one day without food isn't very much though.

They might even get one of their protestors to don the milking equipment. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I...<br><br>
Have so many thoughts on this, coming from all different directions and mushed together like some kind of giant Katamari ball of thoughts, that I think I'm just going to go have some more homemade soy milk and call it a day.

I've wanted to see a film made that showed the life of dairy cows but used humans. Just to see the screaming baby and mother as the baby gets dragged away so soon after birth, and then locked away....<br>
That could be done

This is exactly what it would look like:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i861.photobucket.com/albums/ab176/mollyrose111/312728_214177201981463_170228849709632_502350_677173962_n.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>

thanks dairy industry, now i'm going to have disturbing dreams based on the images that popped into my head that seem like they should belong to some very odd fetish porn

I had something to link, but it's NSFW and the images won't show for nonmembers anyway. But if I could show, I have images of a woman hooked up to a milking machine as part of pet-play in her SM relationship. That was my first thought, they're similar to the american cow-japanese cow post, except...
