Holy Cow discusses the Meat and Dairy Industry.

 

In the U.S, more than 42 million cows suffer and die for the meat and dairy industries every year.

Once they have grown large enough, they are sent to massive, filthy feedlots that are exposed to the elements, there they are to be fattened for slaughter. Cows on dairy farms are repeatedly impregnated and then traumatically separated from their newborn calves until finally their bodies wear out and they are sent to the killing floor where their throats are cut and they are skinned and gutted. Some cows remain fully conscious throughout the entire process.

 

In an interview with The Washington Post, one slaughterhouse worker said, “They die piece by piece.”
