Nestlé Moving Towards Animal Awareness?

In a recent article in the New York Times, Nestlé is described as moving forward towards building pressure on their suppliers for more humane treatments of animals.

For some of us, this might still be a far way to animal welfare, but Nestlé, being one of the global players in the food industry, turning at least some of their attention towards the plight of animals can be seen as the success of all of those speaking up for animals.

Nestlé sells many brands using milk, so changing their attitude might make a big difference to many lives in the milk producing hellish machinery.

As long as people do not know what is going on behind the walls of slaughterhouses they can pretend that life is good for farm animals. Articles like this one can change this.

Please read this article and forward it as often as possible:

Milk With a Dose of Feces

The milk industry continues to be a booming business. The margins, though, are small, so to make more money the industry simply makes life for those beings who produce the milk industries’ gold even more miserable than it was in the first place.

“After a disturbing tip about cruel and grotesque conditions on a North Carolina dairy farm that supplies milk to supermarket chain Harris Teeter, we took a look ourselves.
What we found was shocking.

Emaciated, lame cows whose bones protrude sharply are forced to eat, sleep, and trudge through a deep pool of their own corrosive, bacteria-laden waste while flies swarm about them. The constant contact of the feces and urine with their sensitive skin and feet has resulted in painful foot injuries and ulcers and can also contaminate the milk.”

Immer noch heiß auf Kuhmilch?

Bildschirmfoto 2014-07-29 um 10.19.48

Je mehr wir über das (kurze) Leben von Milchkühen erfahren. um so grausamer erscheint es. Vieles ist dem unbedarften Kuhmilchgenießer bestimmt immer noch unbekannt. Um so wichtiger ist es, mehr über die Praktiken in der Kuhmilchindustrie zu lernen:

“Das drei Wochen alte Kalb, nennen wir es Alma, wird gezwungen, still zu halten, als das 600 Grad heiße Brenneisen an die Wurzel des Horns gelegt wird. Binnen einiger Sekunden werden die umliegenden Nervenzellen schmerzhaft ausgebrannt und die Hornknospe entfernt, um das Hornwachstum zu verhindern. All dies erfolgt ohne Betäubung. Zurück bleibt eine knochentiefe ringförmige Narbe, die oft wochenlang nicht verheilt und das traumatisierte Tier große Schmerzen erleiden lässt.

Alma wird eines Tages zu den 4,3 Mio. Milchkühen in Deutschland gehören, deren Milch wir tagtäglich trinken. Bei den meisten von ihnen wurden die Hornansätze innerhalb der ersten sechs Lebenswochen mit einem Brennstab ausgebrannt. Eine Betäubung ist hierfür gesetzlich nicht vorgeschrieben.

Die Enthornung ist nur ein Beispiel der Anpassung der Milchkühe an ein Haltungssystem, das vorwiegend wirtschaftlichen Faktoren unterliegt und die Gesundheit und Lebensdauer der Tiere in den Hintergrund rückt.”

Cows Living Happily Ever After?

With the evolvement from meat eaters to vegetarians some of these vegetarians have started thinking about going vegan due to the torturous situation of milk cows and the short-lived life of male calves. But even with all the guilt felt when drinking a glass of milk or biting into a piece of raw milk camembert cheese most vegetarians still cannot give up cow milk all together. Taking a look at the holy cows in India, some believe that selling milk and letting a cow live her life until her natural end should not be a paradoxon.

“If you don’t eat beef because you feel sorry for those cows in Chick-fil-A ads, then you probably shouldn’t drink milk either. The typical male calf born to a dairy cow becomes veal. The typical female is milked for five years—a quarter of her natural lifetime—then sent to the abattoir to become pet food or low-grade hamburger meat. Elsie the Cow, Borden Dairy Company’s famous cartoon logo, is smiling only because she doesn’t realize that she’s about to get euthanized with a cattle gun.

Yet if you’re an ethical vegetarian who still can’t bear to give up milk, you now have another option: slaughter-free dairy, which comes from farms where cows never get killed.”
