Cows produce milk for the same reason that people do: to feed their babies. But on today’s factory dairy farms, cows are forcefully impregnated over and over again so that they’ll produce a steady supply of milk. Their babies are taken from them shortly after they’re born so that humans can have the milk that was meant for the calves. The mothers cry for their babies and the babies cry for their mothers. Male calves are sold for veal, and female calves are forced to repeat the same cycle of misery that their mothers endured. Humans do not need milk. We have been brainwashed to believe that.
There are so many healthy alternatives that taste great and are animal & earth friendly such as coconut milk, soy milk, almond milk, etc. Better for you too! No hormones and mucus like there is in cow's milk.
