  • Cows Aren’t Killed for Milk, So What’s Wrong with Drinking It?

(PLEASE SHARE THESE VIDEOS!)

?Cows are absolutely killed for their milk. I can’t say this enough: There is no such thing as a slaughter-free animal agriculture system. ⁣

A cow’s life is only as valuable as the amount of milk she is able to “produce”; when she is no longer “profitable,” she is killed. ⁣

It is simply not economically viable to feed, shelter, treat, and house animals for the rest of their lives and generate no profit in return. ⁣ ⁣

Whether she is used on a small farm, an organic farm, a “humane” farm, a “family-owned” farm, an artisan farm, a whatever-it’s-called-farm, she is killed. ⁣ ⁣

Cattle have a natural life expectancy of 15 or 20 years, but dairy cows are sent to slaughter at about 4 to 5 years young. ⁣ ⁣

We have no physiological need to consume the milk of another animal. But don’t we have a moral obligation to not cause suffering when we can avoid doing so? ⁣ ⁣

We can still enjoy creamy, delicious milks made from plants — that don’t come with inevitable suffering, slaughter, and environmental degradation.

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
