Kitty said: Yes.Is this possible?-I try seach this on internet but no results found.Maybe this is a stupid question.
Mike said: oh,no,you are wrong.I have found as below for this question(Is this possible?),it will help you,my kids.

I have been avoiding dairy (I am a vegetarian). But I sort of miss it. I don%26#039;t want to condone the mistreatment of animals. Are cows ever in comfortable conditions during the milking process?
I also want to avoid pesticides, hormones, and the like.

I understand what you mean. When I tried to first become veg@n I tried to avoid milk but it kept getting me so I became a ovo-vegetarian. Then I started to see alot of veg@n cheeses and milks and all this other stuff that needs milk! You have to get the right brands of non-dairy milk though cause not all taste the same. Silk is nasty to me but Soy Dream and Rice Dream are pretty yummy. Also they have ice creams at any organics store that doesn%26#039;t have milk in it! AS you see there are many substitutes for milk and its not really needed. I have to say now I don%26#039;t miss it one bit cause I know of all the hormones and pesticides and abuse cows take just for a jug of milk! You can do it!! Don%26#039;t let the milk run you!

I forgot to mention that %26quot;Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet%26quot; is an excellent Vegan Cheese. They make several flavors. I have tried the Cheddar, Veganrella, and Jack. Report Abuse

Perhaps there are dairies that humanely treat their cows, but that isn%26#039;t the only problem. To give milk, the cow must be impregnanted every year. That%26#039;s a new cow every year. The males go to veal crates. The females become dairy producers as soon as they are able, and then they too must have a calf every year to maintain the milk supply.

Where does it end? These cows have to be slaughtered for meat at some point in their lives in order to sustain this industry.

So you cannot separate dairy from meat when it comes to the mistreatment of animals. Producing milk and cheese not only supports the meat and veal industries, it makes them a necessity.

Think about it.

The problem with milk is, even if it comes from a dairy where the cows are treated well, fed well, not pumped full of chemicals and are milked by hand, a cow still has to be kept almost constantly pregnant to produce. She still has to have her infant taken away so it doesn%26#039;t drink up the profits, and the males who will never produce milk still have to be disposed of in some way (no one is just keeping them, feeding them, providing them with veterinary care and waiting for them to live out their natural life span when they will never contribute to the bottom line.) If you have a local small dairy you can visit and you feel comfortable with the source of your milk, then it%26#039;s your decision whether or not to drink it. But, you%26#039;re not going to find that in the grocery store, where the vast majority of the milk comes from intensive confinement dairies. And, with that small operation, you still have to wonder if your dollar is supporting the veal industry.

It depends upon the dairy conditions when it comes to mistreatment. I have read so much on here about the %26#039;mistreatment%26#039; of cows during milking and such - that I asked a man that used to own the dairy a few towns over (closed now - couldn%26#039;t compete with the big corporate dairy company).

He told me that when he had his dairy, they didn%26#039;t mistreat the animals - such would be totally %26quot;STUPID%26quot;. His words were, %26quot;WHY would I want to injure them? They helped to feed my family!%26quot; They also didn%26#039;t take the calf away from the mother as some seem to suggest is the only possible way. I know that already - grandmother had a cow and her calf nursed and she still got milk from the cow. She (cow) would even pick up the milk pail and drop it on the porch to get attention when she felt she wanted to be milked by my grandmother.

BUT - he also told me that they way that he ran HIS dairy isn%26#039;t like the way that corporations do (which I guess is why he is out of business).

Sad. Many people claim to want to help the animals and their treatment but don%26#039;t support the business that in fact doesn%26#039;t mistreat.

Point being - if you want dairy - try to find a small local dairy where you know the people that run the company. Where you know if they are giving all sorts of hormones and such to the cows.

The choice is all yours.

I totally believe there is no such thing as %26quot;comfortable conditions%26quot; for a cow to be milked. Cow%26#039;s milk is for baby cows - not humans! In order to make money, a dairy will have to separate a momma cow from her baby - they don%26#039;t want to %26quot;waste%26quot; the milk on the baby. How is that fair?
