Inhumane Treatment of Dairy Cows

Story at-a-glance

  • This video by Animals’ Angels graphically exposes the inhumane treatment of dairy cows at the hands of some conventional dairy “farmers”; cows by the thousands are confined to filthy, crowded stalls and feedlots, and brutalized to maintain high milk production
  • Most of the cows are sick, so their milk contains blood, pus, drugs, and other dangerous pathogens, which is why it must be pasteurized to be safe for human consumption
  • When dairy cows are no longer able to produce milk, they are sent to auction in sick, weak, and emaciated condition, many limping or completely unable to walk due to painful hoof infections
  • Calves are ripped away from their mothers immediately after birth, and are often shipped off to veal operations to spend their short young lives squeezed into tiny crates, until slaughter
  • Every time you purchase conventional milk, you may be supporting the organizations that engage in this cruelty to animals; more than half of conventional milk produced in the U.S. comes from four percent of these mega-operations
