You were born, and with being born, you were given the chance to evoke change–to make a difference–to do something better than your ancestors did.
Whether you capitalize on that chance or not is up to you, but just know that there are millions living each and every day for these animals. And we are proud to be a part of this movement! #Peacelovevegan
Cows are raised in several ways. If born female, they are raised to serve the dairy industry–this involves sticking metal prods into their vaginas every year and milking them the entire time since, like other mammals (including humans), cows only lactate when pregnant. Once their time as dairy cows is over, they are sent to slaughter and become the meat on your plate through throat-slitting, hanging upside down, being torn apart while still entirely conscious, and then finally, horrifically, being ground up.
If born male, they most often become veal (baby cow meat). This means that they see the first month or two of life, and never know their families or love, before becoming your dinner.
You want evidence that these animals feel true pain, that they’re more than something to kill & eat?
Here is what they look like when separated from family, about to be slaughtered.
