      The Letter :


      DEAR EDITOR ,

      MAY 13 , 2001 (SUNDAY) IS "MOTHER'S DAY " .
      BUT WHERE ARE MOTHER COWS' BABIES ?

      MILLIONS OF MOTHER COWS ARE CRYING FOR
      THEIR BABIES WHO WERE DRAGGED AWAY BY
      FORCE FROM CRUEL DAIRY INDUSTRY'S HANDS
      TO THE KILLING FIELDS TO BE EATEN AS
      "VEAL", "HAMBURGER", "PET FOODS" ........

      AND THEN THEY TURN AROUND TO STEAL MOTHER
      COWS' "MILK" WITH MACHINES TO FEED HUMAN
      BABIES FOR PROFITS.....

      Corporate-owned factories where cows are warehoused in huge sheds
      and treated like milk machines have replaced most small family farms.
      With GENETIC manipulation and intensive production technologies,
      it is common for modern dairy cows to produce 100 pounds of milk a
      day--10 times more than they would produce in nature. To keep milk
      production as high as possible, farmers artificially inseminate cows
      every year. Growth hormones and unnatural milking schedules cause
      dairy cows' udders to become painful and so heavy that many of them
      drag on the ground, resulting in frequent infections and overuse of
      antibiotics. Cows -- like all mammals -- make milk to feed their own
      babies --not humans.
      (Please click this photo: http://www.milksucks.com/downbig.jpg )

      "I realized there's even more suffering in a glass of MILK than in a
      pound of Meat." says Dr. Francione, Law Professor at Rutgers University.

      Few people realize cows have to be subjected to pregnancy every year
      so that MILK, CHEESE, BUTTER, ICE CREAM may be produced.
      In order to continue producing high volume milk as much as possible,
      in the modern commercial dairy factory farms cows are constantly kept
      pregnant. Their babies are forcefully dragged away within 1 to 2 days
      of birth, so that milk can be sold and humans can drink MILK intended
      for the calves. Giving birth is a prolonged and painful business for
      the cow, to be rewarded only by separation from her baby.
      Cows often cry out and search for their calves for days after
      their babies are taken away.
      (*The attachment between calf and mother is particularly strong).

      Male calves are sold to feed lots and put into tiny veal crates,
      fatten and chained to endure 16 weeks of hell in the dark, confined to
      stalls so small they can not even make a turn, then slaughtered and sold
      as 'VEAL' , "Beef", "Hamburger" or "Pet Food"........

      Many of the male calves are simply "buried" alive !.
      As one of the Dairy farm worker Paula J. said ,
      " I eat beef, I drink milk. I also worked on a dairy farm when
      I was young. I remember running the backhoe to bury 10s to 100s of
      bull calves dumped in the pit, some dead - some not. This is a
      practice. Whether you do it or not. It is a practice to kill the male
      calves very early on Dairy farms. ". (Paula J. had worked for a large
      dairy farm "Heimadingers" , outside of Clinton, Michigan.)

      Female calves follow in their mother's hoofprints, slaughtered when
      their milk production wanes, usually before their 4th birthday to become
      hamburger or pet food. Normal healthy cows can live up to 26 years old.
      The DAIRY industry is inseparable from the cruel exploitation and
      degradation of helpless, highly intelligent animals.
      (Note: Witnesses at the auction said numerous calves in the pan , some
      are sold for $0.50 to $8 per live calf. Their umbilical cord are still
      attached. They suckle humans hands like puppies. Many people cried .)
      (Source: http://www.farmsanctuary.org )

      DAIRY AND BEEF GOES HAND IN HAND. The following are only
      some of million cases every year regarding the cruelty of the
      industries. Here is an account of Calf slaughter( By-products of milk) :

      "To get done with them faster, we'd put eight or nine of them in the
      knocking box at a time...You start shooting, the calves are jumping,
      they're all piling up on top of each other. You don't know which ones
      got shot and which didn't.... They're hung anyway, and down the line
      they go, wriggling and yelling" (to be slaughtered while fully
      conscious). (Reference Source: "Slaughterhouse" documentary
      book by Gail Eisnitz, 1999.).

      According to a Special Reports by Humane Farming Asso.
      (http://www.hfa.org ) : Some of the slaughterhouse workers described :

      "When a conscious cow arrives at the first hind-legger hanging
      upside down , usually the legger tries to make a cut to start skinning
      out the leg. Unfortunately, it is very difficult and dangerous to do
      that when an animal is kicking violently. So the legger will cut off
      the bottom part of the animal's leg he's working on with a pair of
      clippers." (Source: Slaughterhouse" Documentary book, by Gail Eisnitz)

      Female calves often replace their old, worn-out mothers, or are
      slaughtered soon after birth for the rennet in their stomachs (an
      ingredient of most commercial cheeses). They are often kept in tiny
      crates or tethered in stalls for the first few months of their lives,
      only to grow up to become "milk machines" like their mothers.

      The dairy industry abandons live cows at stockyards when they are no
      longer "profitable" and drags cows to slaughter with chains when they
      can still be sold for human consumption. The male offspring of dairy
      cows are often considered "useless" that they are discarded, often
      alive, on dairy farms or clubbed to death with canes.
      (source: http://www.farmsanctuary.org , http://www.nodowners.org/ ).

      "Dragging cattle with a chain and forklift is standard practice at
      the plant," explained a long-term inspector at a large beef operation in
      Nebraska. "And that's even after the forklift operator rolled over and
      crushed the head of one downer while dragging another." .
      "[T]hey'll go through the skinning process alive. I saw that myself,
      a bunch of times. I've found them alive clear over to the rump stand.".
      "And that happens in every plant. I've worked in four large ones and a
      bunch of small ones. They're all the same." .
      "[E]verybody gets so used to it that it doesn't mean anything.".
      "[W]orkers drag cripples with a garden tractor and a chain ."
      (Ref Source: "Slaughterhouse" by Gail Eisnitz ,P.196).

      Former Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman conceded on
      Feb 11, 1999 in an interview with C-SPAN Washington Journal
      that the ENFORCEMENT of the Humane Slaughter Act is almost
      NON-EXISTENT !

      As far as the health aspects of Cow's milk , there are many research
      reports stated that Cow's milk is linked to Breast Cancer, Prostate
      Cancer, Juvenile Onset Diabetes, Overian Cancer, even Osteoporosis.
      Please refer the following web sites to get the inside story of
      Cow's milk:
      http://www.pcrm.org/health/Info_on_Veg_Diets/dairy.html
      http://www.pcrm.org/health/Info_on_Veg_Diets/milk.html
      http://www.pcrm.org/health/Info_on_Veg_Diets/lactose_intolerance.html
      http://www.pcrm.org/news/lawsuit_cofi.html


      The selling of so saturated cow's milk products including

      MILK, SKIM MILK, ICE CREAM, CHEESE, YOGURT, BUTTER......

      has been pushing dairy and meat industries to torture and kill
      millions of innocent and sentient dairy cows and their babies
      every year just in the United States alone !

      Millions of human babies drink cow's milk to grow up.
      In other words, Dairy cows are indeed the foster mothers for millions
      of human babies. It ends up those grown up human babies bloodily
      killing all of their foster mothers--the dairy cows !

      Dear caring friend, with your help, millions of mother
      cows and calves will avoid to continue to suffer and to be killed .

      Please use your power and talent to urge all of the companies to
      promote healthy and ethical food and drinks, for example :
      Soy milk, Fruit juices, Rice milk, Almond milk..., instead of promoting
      unhealthy animal sources food and drinks which is simply an
      "animal cruelty" issue behind.

      This Mother's Day, let's remember the dairy cows and their
      unfortunate calves, and let's pledge together to outlaw the
      cruel practice of raising veal in the U.S. Please help to ban the
      "VEAL" meat in all of the restaurants.

      We are very grateful to you for your kindness, compassion
      and help.

      Very Truly Yours,
      Name,
      Address,
      City, State, Zip
      Country.
