ost of us grow up believing that drinking milk is natural. But theonly milk our bodies require is that of our mothers when we are babies.Beyond infancy, milk is not a necessarypart of our diet. And especially not milk from another species!
Dairy cows are exploited to their limits.Their welfare and health are not apriority for an industry that wants tokeep production levels high and costsas low as possible. They are forced toproduce as much as 60 litres of milk every day, many times more than isnatural. Around a third of UK dairycows are ‘zero grazed’ – an industryterm for ‘permanently confined’.Many others spend nearly half theirlives in crowded, dirty sheds, waitingfor spring when they will be permittedoutdoors again. By the age of five,dairy cows are no longer profitablemilk ‘machines’, and are slaughtered.To ensure a continual flow of milk,dairy cows are repeatedly madepregnant. Their calves are taken fromthem at one or two days old, so that the milk meant for them can be bottledup for humans. Some of the femalecalves replace worn-out cows in thedairy herd. But males are oftenregarded as waste by-productsbecause demand is limited for their‘low quality’ flesh. ‘Surplus’ calves areshot or sent on punishing journeys tocontinental veal farms.Due to relentless milking, nearly half of all British cows suffer from swollen,infected, weeping udders. Traces of pus and blood from infected teats seepinto the milk that peopleend up drinking.Current regulationspermit millionsof pus cellsper litre!Milk fromother animalssuch assheep andgoats isproduced ina similar way.
