Often the cows mourn for their babies. They?ll be seen bellowing for them and looking for them. Mass producing milk for human consumption has disrupted the natural order of things. The cows are fed hormones to continue to stimulate milk production. The electric pumps are painful to the cow?s udders. With the hormone stimulation, cows are forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would ordinarily.
When their milk-producing days are over, the cows are then slaughtered for ground beef. It also takes enormous natural resources to feed and water all these cows. The water table is being depleted to sustain this enormous industry. And the waste produced by all these large animals is having a detrimental effect on the environment.
We really don?t need to consume milk after a certain age. Why would we continue to support this industry that?s built on animal suffering? To really top it off, humans are not meant to drink cow milk. Calf?s are meant to drink cow milk and we humans are meant to drink human milk. Our bodies were not designed to digest the proteins in cow milk ? so why bother? Especially when you can get more calcium from a green, leafy vegetable?
