With Easter just around the corner, I'd like to take this opportunity to share some information about the dairy industry. Easter isnít just about chicken eggs, but chocolate eggs too. Sadly the dairy industry is just as horrid as the egg industry (please see my other article for information on the egg industry). Cows are forcibly impregnated (to continue the milk supply), then their calves are taken away at birth, as a by-product. Males are discarded, and become veal, while females are kept as milking cows.

The truth is: Milk doesn't come from happy cows who frolic in green meadows.

Perhaps the following video can explain everything better than I possibly can. This video may be shocking to some, but please watch it. It's important to know where dairy comes from.

This is a non-violent/graphic video.

"The treatment of bobby calves has been a long-held secret of the dairy industry. For the sake of milk products, the Australian dairy industry discards some 700,000 unwanted week-old calves as 'waste products' every year. You can help these vulnerable animals at Animals Australia"

What you never knew about dairy

Once you watch the video, I know that you will want to know where to get some cruelty-free Easter goodies. Click here for some ideas or check out my recent article, A Cruelty-Free Easter for some special suggestions.

There are many alternatives to dairy milk, such as:
Almond milk
Hazelnut milk
Soy milk
Rice milk
Oat milk
Personal favourites: Pacific Foods All Natural Hazelnut Chocolate milk, Vitasoy Oatmilk Brown Sugar & Cinnamon, and So Good Lite

Give each of the alternatives to dairy milk a try, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
