20 miles from here a herd of dairy cows whose enslaved lives provide milk to the masses and which fund the paycheques of the farm employees, put a roof over the farmer's family heads, put food on the farmer's table and clothes on the backs of his kids are kicked, hung and beaten in horrific abuse.
If the employees beat and bashed the farmer's tractors, trucks and farm equipment the way they bashed and beat his cows, they would have been fired long ago.
Here is the thing..no one bashes equipment. it is too expensive to replace and there is no surge of personal power in abusing machines because machinery cannot feel fear or pain.
But cows can.
This is not just a case of animal abuse, this is a case of total and violent contempt for a powerless species that has no choice, no options but to endure human abuse.
And we let it happen, every day of their agonized lives..millions and millions of times.
Think we have no power to change what is happening so close to home?
Tell Dairyland you will never...EVER... buy any of their products until they guarantee that ALL of their dairy products come only from SPCA certified Cruelty Free Dairy Farms.
Now is the time to change the present, now is the time to change the future for animals more helpless than we. Please do not let them suffer in vain.
(If you haven't watched the video..watch it. If those poor cows must suffer it, we can be the witness to their needless suffering and their advocates for compassionate change. There is a petition you can sign underneath the video. Here is the email contact info for Dairyland, send them an email http://www.dairyland.ca/Home/Contact)
