Dairy Cows: They're Just Mothers Without Their Children

>>  Friday, December 2, 2011

Remember all the great tunes from therockcookiebottom?


Well here's their newest song: The Truth About Dairy Cows


LYRICS:
I used to think if I didn't eat meat
that I was doing my part
I couldn't give up cheese and dairy
and I didn't see why I should start
After all cows always give milk
to be enjoyed by me and you
I never stopped to question
whether or not that's true

Dairy cows are kept pregnant
just about their entire lives
artificially inseminated 
Mooing, lonely wives
giving birth every year, baby
calves just taken away 
And that's how you get your cheese
each and every day

cows cows
they're just mothers without their children
cows cows
they are crying out to find them
and it all happens over and over again

the dairy cows children
are separated out
females share their mama's fate
they too will be dairy cows
pumped full of hormones
starting at the age of 1
they normally live to 25 
but 5 years of this and they're done

cows cows
they're just mothers without their children
cows cows
they are crying out to find them
and it all happens over and over again

but what about her sons
they got no milk to give 
so in the eyes of this system
they got no right to live
They are just a thing left over
Wasted life into a meal
When they end up on a dinner plate
'Cause someone ordered veal

"they're just mothers without their children"

Nothing else needs saying.

Was that a human animal at the end? The 'superior' being? Still walking the streets while the innocent ones are not?

Thanks for the affirmation guys... Such a wicked, ugly thing this dairy business is.
