Full-Page Ad Seeks Dairy Industry Whistle-Blowers
As consumers increasingly ditch dairy and opt for dairy-free milk because of concerns about animal welfare, the environment, and their own health, PETA wants to lift the lid on cruelty in the dairy industry.
To make it happen, we’ve placed a full-page ad in today’s edition of the Daily Post.
The ad campaign asks whistle-blowers to come forward with reports of cruelty to cows on UK dairy farms by submitting evidence to [email protected].
What’s Wrong With Dairy?
Cows used for dairy are artificially inseminated – farmers forcefully insert their arm into the cow’s rectum and a metal rod into her vagina – and their calves are taken from them shortly after birth so that their milk can be sold and consumed by humans instead.
Male calves, who are considered a “by-product” by the dairy industry, may be shot in the head shortly after birth or sentenced to a short, miserable life before being killed and carved up as veal.
Most female calves are destined for the same fate as their mothers: used as milk machines until their bodies give out and they’re slaughtered for cheap meat. Dairy-free milks are better for animals and contain none of the artery-clogging fat and cholesterol of cows’ milk.
Want to Reach Out?
Routine abuse and neglect are occurring out of view of the public on dairy farms across the UK, and exposing these issues is the first step in making positive changes.
If you’ve seen anything that concerns you and/or have evidence of cruelty to animals, please e-mail us at [email protected].
