The American Dairy Association and Dairy Council (ADAC) and dairy farms across America have been mistreating cows, separating newborn calves from their mothers and sending them to slaughter,dragging them by their ears and beating defensless cows and their young.Milk is not nessecary for the human body, and we are better off without it.The mother cows never get to see their young calves after birth.
"That's one sad,unhappy,upset cow.She wants her baby.Bellowing for it,hunting for it.It's like greiving,mourning-not much written about it.People don't like to allow them
thoughts or feelings." -Temple Grandin, Ph.D.
Sick and injured cows unable to walk are left to suffer.Veal calve's necks are chained while they stand side by side in tiny, crowded stalls.
The crates the cows live in are so small, they can't even turn around.
Male cows are rendered useless because they can't produce milk, so they are sent to slaughter minutes after they're born.
THE WORST PART, NOT FOR THE LIGHT -HEARTED:
When cows can no longer produce milk, they are "used"for meat.Cows are hung upside down while fully concious, and they're throats are slit, causing all of the blood to rush out of them.
Cows are extremely gentle and affectionate animals,they form strong bonds together, especially between mother and calf, and these gentle giants do not deserve to be treated this way!Please sign my petition to get ADADC to help cows get better living conditions and respect.

Dear ADADC,
Please give your cows more respect and better living conditions.
These are very affectionate creatures that did nothing to you. They also provide milk for you to sell, for YOUR income.
Please respect these amazing animals. They are considered sacred in India, so why not act like that here?

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Thank you so much for 1000 supporters!!! No matter how much this company denies, I will DIE fighting for these loving and intelligent creatures. They will not reveal the truth, and I know why.If they tell us, the consumers, about what goes on in the dairy industry, we won't buy it. Then they will shut down and lose all of their "precious" money.

      the ADADC only rules THREE STATES. And the person that i talked to denied EVERYTHING. Either PETA was wrong, or the lady on the phone that I talked to covered up and made the farms sound like cow paradise. She told me that the cows were taken from their mothers for "health reasons" and the stalls that the cows stayed in were comfortably large. "The stalls are cleaned every day" and "The farmers treat their cows in the best way possibe" were both things that she said. But watch the video. It certainly is NOT like that. Ladies and Gentleman, this just goes to prove how large expensive industries do NOT want us to know about what goes on in the making of milk. We had an 18 minute convorsation, and I did'nt beleive anything she said. PETA PROVED that sad and abused cows lived in the farms. Well, let's see where this journey goes.

    7. Thanks for 600!

      Cannot stand the thought of any animal being mistreated, and I think that many people forget about the farm animals that are supposed to be taken care of.

      There is no excuse to abuse animals for a profit. Please help stop it. They deserve to be treated humanely and with respect.
