Greed Kills Half A Million Calves

More than 500,000 young dairy calves were mercilessly killed as a result of greed and profit. According to a recent class action lawsuit filed by law firm Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, LLP on behalf of consumers, various dairy companies - including the National Milk Producers Federation, Dairy Farmers of America, and Land O'Lakes - formed a trade group called Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) in order to engage in an illegal price fixing scheme that has resulted in more than $9.5 billion in unfairly obtained profits. CWT allegedly colluded to reduce the supply of milk and thereby inflate the price by buying out small dairy farms and then instructing workers to kill their entire herds. To learn more please visit Dairy Industry Allegedly Kills Half a Million Calves in Illegal Price Fixing Scheme:

The total disrespect for the lives of God's animals is so appalling that it seems unreal to those of us who do our best to embrace a compassionate lifestyle. Our responsibility to bring change is to expose the inherent cruelty of animal agriculture so more people realize that farmed animals are systematically tortured and killed for nothing else than taste and profit.
