A MOST touching story! Most diary cow’s babies are taken away at birth and killed, while the mother grieves and gives the babies milk to be sold to grocery stores. Do your homework on dairies. If you buy milk find out all you can about how they care for their cows. Buying from a local farmer or co-op is good but still research about the farm/farmer. Cows are precious and should be treated with their feelings in mind. Studying the different types of Vegetarianism and Veganism would be a great step in the right direction. Vegans don’t drink/use milk. Some Vegetarians may or may not drink it according to their wishes. Using soymilk, almond milk, or coconut milk part-time instead of cow’s milk is another great option! Let’s make a difference in the lives of these precious ones. The link to the article follows below. The article is based in Australia, but the conditions are the same here in the U.S.
