    Enough already. Let the prices rise. I'm sick to death of subsidizing animal torture for no reason.

    •  It's not possible to lower soy and almond milk? (1+ / 0-)

        We treated them like family, and they weren't even ours. My family stopped dairy farming in the late 50's but rented out our pastures to our neighbors. I never saw anyone mistreat a cow. Cows are very sweet creatures. I love them, and I appreciate their milk.

          the olden days industry was taking over the Green River valley. So they saved the farms. The white dairy farmers got saved and the Asian berry/bean/lettuce farmers got scrapped.

          Well that is how we learned that dairy farms do stink and really belonged in Eastern Wa.

          I love cows too. Jerseys are my favorite. Once they get used to kids they will put up with all sorts of climbing and act like large dogs.

              Grandma Nancy shot a cow during the Civil War which was in her garden. Not shot dead. But the whole town was mad at her, seems the cows all had cow bells and went to the pasture by themselves and home again to get milked. But there is always this one cow who figures out the garden is much better than the pasture. So Grandma Nancy shot the cow with bird shot. The story just ended there or I fell asleep, who knows.
