    How do we stop baby cows from being taken from their mothers?

      Don’t drink milk or use milk products. Search for groups that are promoting ethical alternatives. Share the groups here and everywhere.

      We TELL people.
      LOUDLY and without ceasing.
      Once we SEE, anything less denies our own soul.

      We say: THIS IS WRONG.

      We say it over and over, again and again.
      We spend no energy on people who wish to silence us.
      We focus on the people who HEAR.

      The hurdle I find most often is this:
      Humans who eat animal stuff, hold their norms to be self-evident; and getting humans to question that which they hold to be self-evident, is… challenging.

      So, we SHOW people what dairy is.
      We show facts.
      And science.

      Here are some resources that I find engaging.

      The photojournalism series by Jo-Anne McArthur at a small-scale dairy and veal farm. People think of small farms as “humane” but they are based on the destruction of the mother-child bond, same as any other.
      Her photographs are beautiful:

      Below is a FASCINATING HISTORY of how dairy came to be what it is today:

      Below is a quick but thorough overview of the dairy industry:

      This last one has subtitles, but her voice and her words are gripping… she used to be a dairy farmer:
      The screams of the mothers … I still hear the sound. It won’t go away. I keep thinking about it. Today I am a mother, and I don’t understand how people who say that they love animals don’t see it. Don’t understand it.

      All the sorrow that I caused to them is forever engraved upon my heart. I have no idea how many mothers and babies I put on the trailer to send them to slaughter. How many mothers were left without their babies. And they cried and called for their babies. They call and call. If someone would touch my daughter or my son… I don’t know what to say, just the thought of it frightens me. When I worked on the farm, I saw no problem with it. I sent mothers and their babies to slaughter. I separated babies from their mothers.

      XOXO, veb

    In Massachusetts one thing people in this state agree on is protecting animals. It seems to be the one unifying thing. We just passed a law about veal and chicken confinement. We passed trapping laws also. I stopped a women sitting near us in a restaurant from ordering veal. I told her about a 60 minutes show on how they get veal tender. It was so heartbreaking that even my meat eating husband stopped eating veal. People must become more aware of what’s going on raising animals and slaughtering them. We now have to import people from other countries to work in the slaughter houses. American citizens would report abuse.

    Here’s hoping the things of horror piss off and leave you alone.

    And to the non vegans reading this, maybe you could try one day a week? Or one day a month. It all helps. I’m nearing my 40 years a vegan anniversary, and I’m still here! xxx

    I so appreciate you posting the animal stuff. People don’t realize that drinking a glass of milk means a baby was taken from it’s momma, and treated like garbage. So sad. We CAN change it!

    Only someone who has fostered kittens can truly appreciate that hilarious video that I cannot stop watching. Thanks to you, I am a member of that club and took the plunge and fostered my first litter and have the scabs all over my legs today even though they have all been placed into loving homes and I am “itching” for another go around….did I really just say that? Don’t tell my husband…..and you may also take credit for indirectly helping a little tuxedo find a permanent home in my daughters house. In efforts to get my daughter on the fostering “band wagon” – she fell in love and now has a cat that was suppose to be a “short term” foster. YAY!
    I am giving this vegan thing some serious thought next. No telling what you might be able to convince me to do….

    I wouldn‘t recommend soy as a milk substitute, but almond milk is just great!

      Yeah, soy milk isn’t great. I’ve been into hemp milk the past few years, using almond milk if the store is out of hemp. They’re both wonderful! Target has a flax milk which is also perfect. Always get unsweetened. I bought sweetened once by accident and it actually startled me. Far too sweet.

    You may not abandon me to blogville limbo without filing a writ of abandonment and the name of a good conversationalist/wit/GFT expert and possessor of strangely immaculate hardwood floors even though you are the proud possessor of a constant stream of floofBalls. How do you manage that-Roomba? I am having the darndest time posting items like yours to facebook-controversial and I get the on/off flash screen. Posting drivel,no problemo? Is it a plot or is Facebook trying to exclude all controversy? I hope your problems are solved or ignored to the point of rendering them moot. From my seventies I can assure you the only things that matter are those that bring a smile-the others are not worth your time. If you can solve um- great-if not-why pay them heed? Let them dry up and blow away into a dark lonely corner of your indifference……
