Mackenzie Dierks, from Pork Checkoff:

“One of the things you touched on was a lactose source, such as whey, and its importance, and also the challenges it can create as a part of the nursery pig diet. Can you expand on that?”

Joel DeRouchery, from Kansas State University:

“Lactose is a very common nutrient that we look at to formulate into starter pig diets. Lactose is the milk sugar, so pigs really like the taste. It’s highly digestible in that transition period from the sow on into weaning. So it’s very typical we have some sort of lactose source from weaning, up until the pigs are about 25 pounds.”

“One thing that’s happened over this last portion of this year is that the lactose price has greatly increased. In fact, spray-dried whey is priced around 75 cents per pound. And if we go back historical, 4 years ago, it was 24 cents per pound.”

Well…

It seems that everyone’s getting dairy products except infant cows.

And, it seems that baby animals of various kinds are denied their own milk from their mothers.

Let’s back up a second and review Biology 101…

Cow + Pregnancy = Baby Cow
Cow Lactation = Food for Baby Cow

Pig + Pregnancy = Baby Pig
Pig Lactation = Food for Baby Pig

Human + Pregnancy = Baby Human
Human Lactation = Food for Baby Human

That’s what nature intended.

Now, a step-by-step sequence describing how humans have screwed with nature:

  1. Humans want Cow Lactation.
  2. Humans take the Food for Baby Cow from Baby Cow.
  3. Humans feed Baby Cow a “milk replacer.”
  4. Humans calculate the economic usefulness of Baby Cow in order to determine his or her ultimate fate.

and…

  1. Humans want to consume lots of Pig flesh.
  2. Lots of Pig flesh requires lots of dead Pigs.
  3. Humans breed lots of Pigs in order to kill lots of Pigs in order to consume lots of Pigs.
  4. Humans remove baby Pig from mother Pig as early as possible.
  5. Humans feed baby Pig “milk replacer” from a Cow.
Conclusions:

  1. Humans like to breed, kill and consume one type of animal in order to breed, kill and consume another type of animal.
  2. Humans like to take what is not rightly theirs to take.
  3. Humans have zero requirement for (non-human) animal Lactation.
  4. Humans learn speciesist behaviors based on societal indoctrination.
  5. Humans are capable of challenging social norms.

It’s time to stop disrespecting nature.

Live vegan and let’s stop the insanity!

I took these pictures this morning, when these birds were still alive.  Now they are DEAD.

These birds will be your lunch, or your dinner.  You’ll order him up from a menu without knowing who he was.  When eating her meat, her interests won’t even cross your mind.  A bird’s whole life will end so that a few people can consume one meal.

These birds’ legs, thighs, wings, backs, breasts, gizzards, and livers are no longer their own.  In fact, they’ve never been their own.  These birds’ body parts will be turned into strips, tenders, nuggets, hot wings…and they’ll be baked, fried, roasted, broiled, barbecued, and grilled.

Today I was fortunate to be able to photograph– from my moving vehicle– the faces of a few of today’s victims of unnecessary slaughter.  I sincerely hope that in looking at the faces of these individual sentient beings, you will find the place in your heart and mind to make the decision to stop consuming their bodies.

These are chickens, not “chicken.”  RIP to all the birds killed on July 2, 2012…
