All sad but true. Dairy cows, completely exhausted after multiple forced pregnancies for 4-5 years, are then slaughtered. Normal life expectancy? 25 years. What a disgrace. ☹
Precious babies. I pray for peace on earth from these barbaric industries! 💔
Just started drinking almond milk. It is delicious and worth a try. One step at a time.
@luc_latour Try other kinds of alternatives too! If you want to try making your own, soak one cup of almonds, then drain and blend with 4 cups water. Sweeten if needed.
Dairy tastes amazing but it's so not worth putting another living being through such a sad and tortuous existence.
@luc_latour Bonsoy is great!
I was near a dairy farm in BC and a calf that had been born recently was lying curled up in its isolation chamber. I pet it and there was zero response. It just continued to stay curled up in a ball with its eyes open. That's not natural, pure and simple. A new born needs...well, something! I was heartbroken. It's honestly hard not to get depressed living in such a world of cruelty 💔
Almond milk is delicious especially for smoothies! And you get used to it in coffee...
Having grown up on a small family dairy farm, I can confirm all of this is true. Slavery, then slaughter. Almond milk and cheese is fantastic, but I'm also looking for more sustainable alternatives to almond / soy.
I learned about this by watching @cowspiracy and literally cried! Cows are so sweet and it's heartbreaking to know that they keep tearing their babies away😓. There are so many other yummy options! Coconut milk is my fave! Love that you are spreading the word! 😘
