  1. Only the most naive could think that there's a nice and humane way to mass-produce dairy at a price that's affordable to the consumer. There's no way to get a female cow to lactate without making her pregnant; there's gonna be all those calves, regardless of how nice or mean the large-scale dairy farm is. What's the solution, give all those calves pastureland to roam naturally in? Do you have any idea how resource-intensive and land-intensive that would be? Just because fat glutinous idiots want mozzarella on their pizza, and dont want to feel any guilt when shown footage like this? Footage that is the result of the affordability of their dairy products that they just have to have. Because humans needing to ingest bovine lactations on a regular basis makes so much sense.

  2. It took an undercover investigation to uncover this. Not the company. That's all you need to know. The poor animals omg. ?
