Happy Mother’s Day — to moms of all species

I want to share one of my favorite videos from Edgar’s Mission, a sanctuary in Australia.

Cows do not produce milk simply by virtue of being a cow; they are mammals and will only produce milk for their offspring. Once born, the babies are soon taken away from their mothers and the milk she intended for her baby is harvested for human consumption. The males, who will never produce milk, are killed, many in the first week of their life. Females can become herd replacement animals and some are even sent to China to meet a growing demand for dairy. Small, or non-commercial heifers meet the same fate as the males. If you love dairy products and don’t believe you can ever find an alternative, please remember this, mother cows love their babies many times more. — Edgar’s Mission
