  4. This whole website is misinformation. As someone who used to work on a dairy farm, cows are literally impregnated until they become “downers”. Downers are when a dairy cow collapses from all the continuous pregnancies, the stress of being separated from their calves, being fed grains rather than grass, and the dirty tightly packed environment. Dairy farmers either sell these downers to meatpacking factories (which is illegal), kill them, and put the meat into the other cows’ food, or just kill them and call it a day.

    Stop misinforming kids as a marketing strategy. This should be illegal.
