💔 Milk Hurts 💔
・・・
From our friends at Truth or Drought: "In the drought-stricken, near-desert climate state of California, we have intentionally bred 1.77 million of the animals with the highest daily drinking water requirement per unit pounds of body weight of any other land mammal on Earth – even more than elephants, rhinos, or hippos!

Per Dairy Herd Management: 'Do you know which land-based mammal has the highest daily drinking water requirement (per unit pound of body weight)? Elephant? Rhinoceros? Hippopotamus? These may be good guesses, but the answer is the modern dairy cow. A milking dairy cow drinks about 30 to 50 gallons of water each day. During periods of heat stress water intake may double. Water weighs 8.35 lbs/gal, so a milking dairy cow may consume as much as 420 (or more) pounds of water daily.' California Milk Advisory Board says California has 1.77 million water-guzzling, alfalfa-inhaling dairy cows. USDA data shows there are about 5.5 million cows total in California.

Yet even though the drinking water alone of just California's dairy cows is 2-3 times more than the amount of water California's human residents drink, this amount of water is dwarfed by the amount used to grow cattle feed. In fact, per Pacific Institute, more of California's water goes to growing feed for cows than anything else!" Given that dairy involves exploiting animal motherhood and stealing calves from their mothers in order to facilitate our needless theft of their baby food, dairy is not only one of the most unsustainable and resource-draining foods on the planet, it is also one of the cruelest and most offensive (motherhood should never be a thing we exploit). In all species of mammal, mother's milk is very specifically baby food for baby animals, and cow's milk is for baby cows.
Join the growing movement of people ditching dairy and living vegan for the wellbeing of animals, their own health, and the health of our precious earth. There are tons of delicious plant-based milks, cheeses, creams, yogurts and more!
