    I couldn’t even finish that video… I pretty much only saw the baby calf being dragged and then the other being lifted by his/her neck because I can’t tolerate that level of cruelty. That is a horrific act of animal cruelty. I can’t even watch those monsters treating those animals like that. It’s horrible. It’s also not the behavior of every dairy farmer out there. A family member of mine works at a dairy farm and I can tell you she is the biggest animal lover I know. She hugs, pets and talks to her cows and seriously cherishes every singly one. She would never ever treat an animal this way or allow the animals in her care to be treated this way. To me this is not about dairy farming but about the people. What kind of monster would treat a living being like that? I’m sure his level of cruelty extends to other parts of his life: to his wife, children, dog, neighbors. People capable of behavior like that are monsters all around. I do think that the standards for dairy farming can use some improvement: bigger space, pasture use, better cleanliness. But to say that we can actually get rid of dairy farming completely is like telling Americans they can’t buy guns.

    I absolutely agree with Jennifer. I’m from Australia, and know dairy farmers myself. Dairy farming is a big part of the Australian farming culture, and I don’t know a single dairy farmer that would punch, kick, throw or strangle their cows. This is a huge reflection on the person committing these acts. It’s disgusting. It is easy to find animal cruelty free dairy products in Australia, there are so many farmers committed to treating their animals well, letting them roam free and calling them a part of their family. Finding dairy brands with the same values in the US has been a huge struggle for me, why is it so much harder here to find animal friendly animal products here? So many people argue that there is no such thing, but there is!
