The best way to get over your cheese addiction, is to watch a mother cow scream for days as her newborn child is ripped away from her; so that you can have her milk.
HOLD THE PHONE
IMA STOP YOU RIGHT THERE
CHECK YOUR FACTS
Hi there, I’ve worked on a dairy farm. Lemme just correct you.
1. Uhm the cows don’t scream for days, maybe like for an hour at the most but they get over it as soon as you feed them. Seriously. Baby, forgotten.
2. The calves still receive their mother’s milk. In fact, they receive MORE milk than they’d normally be getting, since farmers have figured out the exact amount of colostrum a calf needs to grow up healthy, and they can give this to the baby, whereas with natural feeding the calves often get too little.
3. They receive colostrum from the healthiest cows to insure that their immune system is bolstered enough. Infections and disease are INCREDIBLY common in dairy cows allowed to suckle. Farms even freeze colostrum from the healthiest mothers, just to insure that all calves will be able to have a sufficient quality of healthy, infection-free mother’s milk.
4. The calves are also removed from their mothers due to the high calf mortality rate when left with their mothers. Cows, ESPECIALLY first-time mothers, have the tendency to not care properly for their babies. We’ve had calves with broken legs because their mother stepped on them after birthing (and yes, they have adequate space, they’re just clumsy animals) A lot of new mothers will abandon the calf, or not care for it properly, or not allow it to nurse. Other cows may push around the calves. It’s much safer and healthier for both mother AND child if the calves are removed and placed in a safer area.
5. Calves get EXCELLENT care. They are bottle-fed mother’s milk, placed in roomy, well-bedded box stalls, blanketed, cleaned, vetted. The farm kind of obviously needs them as healthy as possible?
6. Most farms nowadays don’t even completely “take them away”. The farm I worked on would allow the cows to run with their calves for most of the time. They were fed separately for the health reasons listed above, and the cows would be brought in to be milked twice a day, and separated at night so no accidental nighttime injuries happened in the box stalls. They are weaned very gradually, and spend most of the time with their mothers, contrary to what PETA would have you believe.
THIS HAS BEEN A PSA ON BEHALF OF DAIRY FARMERS THANK U FOR TUNING IN REMEMBER TO CHECK UR FACTS NEXT TIME PLEASE
every american i’ve talked to on skype asked about bagged milk so far
what the hell is bagged milk?
IT’S JUST MILK
IN A BAG
WHY IS THIS SUCH A STRANGE CONCEPT
BECAUSE IF YOU OPEN IT, DOESN’T IT GO EVERYWHERE?
HOW DO YOU EVEN
WHAT THE FUCK IS BAGGED WATER
WHY ARE YOU BAGGING DRINKS?
I could bring them to you this weekend, but I’m pretty sure they are expired or will expire soon.
I’m not sure if that’s more or less depressing than seeing an old cup of milk still partially full.
But still, how can you still have milk around that’s about to expire? A gallon hardly lasts a few days in my apartment.
What is something that fans would be surprised to find out about you?
Angel: (To Bradley) They know about your milk drinking, don’t they?
Bradley: Don’t tell them about that again ‘cause I’ll get more milk.
Colin: Yeah, he loves milk.
Angel: You love milk, though!
Bradley: I do, but I don’t want people sending me-

This is seriously an amazing visual. I always hear people say “healthy food is too expensive”…. well here you go!
I would love to see where they got 2-pounds of chicken for $1.96. You can’t get 2-pounds of sand for $1.96.
1 Gallon of Milk for $2?!?! Where the hell are these people shopping? Oh, Walmart apparently. Still. It’s not that cheap there.Source: fitness-is-a-habit
