“Rows and rows of calf hutches for a 16,000 cow dairy farm in eastern Oregon - one of the many dairy farms in the US.
On dairy farms, there are new babies being born every single day. Many dairy farms use the “hutch housing” system. Babies stolen from their mothers after birth (standard dairy industry practice) are housed in “calf hutches” (as seen). These babies, who are not allowed to drink their mothers’ milk, are fed “milk replacer” (another standard dairy industry practice) while their milk goes into the products humans consume.”
Also, the milk substitute they’re fed is intentionally low in iron so that they will develop anemia to keep their flesh pale. Most calves suffer from chronic pneumonia and diarrhea due to the conditions they’re raised in, and given the fact that they don’t have room to move, they just sit around in their own filth. And then self-proclaimed “gourmets” eat the tortured anemic baby cow diarrhea meat.
Happy to say that even though I haven’t always been vegan I have at least never eaten veal (to my knowledge). My mom told me what it was when I was little and we both decided to completely avoid it. And now we’re both vegan.
Please, everyone reblogging this, you need to understand one thing:
The dairy industry is responsible for the veal industry. Veal = babies of dairy cows. If you buy milk, you support the veal industry. It’s not a matter of simply cutting out veal! Dairy = veal.
Just noting that I don’t repost this because I think it’s gonna make you vegan [I realise it’s not going to happen], but because it’s annoying when people keep saying “but it’s not that bad” or “this doesn’t happen” or “I saw cows on meadows so this must mean every animal product comes from happy animals” or “I can’t imagine something like that, so it can’t be true”.*
* I have actually heard most of those, although with different wording.
Vegans don’t give a flying fuck about your “diet.” We don’t turn to other vegans and say, “Hey, maybe you should lay off the french fries.” Because you know what? That’s none of our fucking business.
But when your habits contribute to the death of over 150 billion sentient, feeling, conscious creatures each year, you can bet your ass we’ll have something to say about it. And no, that doesn’t mean we’re forming prayer circles around the deli section, or slapping burgers out of your hands. It means we’re exercising free speech to inform you of the impact of your decisions.
“ The idea that we have the right to inflict suffering and death on other sentient beings for the trivial reasons of palate pleasure and fashion is, without doubt, one of the most arrogant and morally repugnant notions in the history of human thought. ”— Gary L. Francione (via headandstomachaches)
Aggressively dispute vegans when they compare your life to that of an animals. Then compare yourself to an animal by questioning why it’s fine for lions to eat zebras but not fine for you to do so.
I know not everyone’s like that, but it’s too fitting [and funny] a lot of times not to repost it… :þ
the whole “humanely raised animals for food” sounds really close to nice guy syndrome
“oh but i was nice to the animals that means i should be allowed to slaughter them right?”
“oh but i was nice to the girl that means i should be allowed to fuck her right?”
