For World Plant Milk Day, PETA Urges People to Grow Up and Leave Cows’ Milk for Calves

London – Today, in the lead-up to World Plant Milk Day (22 August), two giant PETA “babies” held signs proclaiming, “Cows’ Milk Is for Baby Cows” and “Not Your Mum? Not Your Milk!” on London’s Millennium Bridge to highlight how unnatural it is to drink the milk of any species past weaning age, let alone that of a cow who was forcibly impregnated and whose baby was taken from her.

“It’s absurd for any human to guzzle the mammary secretions of a mother cow, which are meant for her own baby,” says PETA Senior Campaigns Manager Kate Werner. “PETA urges everyone to leave cows’ milk for calves and opt for delicious non-dairy milk instead.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that non-dairy milks made from soya, coconut, almonds, oats, and hemp are a healthy, environmentally friendly, and delicious option for thirsty humans. They contain none of the artery-clogging animal fat and cholesterol of cows’ milk, which often also contains traces of pus and bacteria from the animals’ infected udders. In addition, these drinks spare cows a lifetime of being forcibly impregnated and regularly separated from their babies until their bodies give out and they’re slaughtered for cheap meat.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
