99 percent of dairy products sold on US grocery store shelves comes from mother cows who are permanently separated from their calves at birth, or shortly thereafter...calves raised on a milk-based formula fed by humans and/or machines. The female calves are raised to be dairy producers, the male calves are shipped off to be used as veal or to be raised as beef cattle. Females endure forced pregnancies.
This petition calls on Whole Foods Market to take up the challenge to offer to the consumer a line of dairy products exclusively sourced from cows who live more in tune with their very own will....momma cows and their calves living as a family unit, honoring the will of the mother to live a life with her very own babies...not being subjected to forced and repeated pregancies, being allowed to have her own babies feed directly from her.
Whole Foods Market is likely the only major US grocery store with the willingness and ability to see this through. They have a proven track record when it comes to improving and maintaining the quality of life of the animals raised for their meat-based products. The next logical step for them is to transfer this company policy to their dairy products.
We are not asking for Whole Foods to stop selling dairy products that do not adhere to this petition's stated purpose. We are asking them to provide to the consumer a line of dairy products that will give the consumer a choice in this matter.
This petition hopes to raise the awareness of the general public to the conditions that exist in the dairy industry. Most people have no idea that a momma cow has her baby stolen from her at birth, that it is nearly impossible to find a dairy product for sale in a major US grocery store that was sourced from cows permitted to live with their own offspring, their own siblings, instead living in groups of hundreds, even thousands.
It is also the hope of this petition that consumers will consider non-dairy sources of milk, cheese, yogurt, ice-cream, etc. There is no shortage of delicious and nutritious dairy-free options availble on grocery store shelves.
The momma cows and calves can not advocate for themselves. They are powerless in this regard. Please sign this petition and request that Whole Foods gives the consumer a choice, placing a line of dairy products on their shelves that honors this petition, and, more importantly, is more in line with the true will and wishes of the momma cow and her calves.
