I just finished watching this video, which was in a weekly veg newsletter I receive. It’s nothing I haven’t seen before, nothing I haven’t read about from many sources, but I’m still sitting here crying. The baby cows being taken from their mothers and facts about how (and how many) baby chicks are killed always hits a nerve.
If you consume animal products, please watch the video. This stuff is true. I watched all 12 minutes to make sure it wasn’t some sort of over the top animal rights crap.
The vast majority of all animals used for meat and dairy production spend their lives in awful conditions. It’s almost guaranteed any animal product you buy at a big box supermarket or eat at a chain restaurant is produced by one of the few large corporations controlling these industries who exist to make money and don’t give a shit about animal welfare or your health.
I’m not against eating meat. But if you choose to include it in your diet, and are not willing to say what you see in that video is ok with you, please do some research on how to get humanely raised animal products in your area.

I would like to know how people feel about this. Do you think it’s a lie? Do you just not care? Do you feel bad for a few minutes and go back to eating your factory farmed food because it’s what you’ve been used to your whole life? The last one was a yes for me for a long time, but at some point I couldn’t do it anymore.
