Veal is not an animal. Veal is the flesh of a calf killed when he is three or four months old.
Cows are artificially inseminated to get them pregnant. They produce milk to feed their calves. In order to profit from the milk, dairy farmers take calves from their mothers 48 hours after they are born. Then the cows are again artificially inseminated.
Female calves are raised to be dairy cows and males are either killed, left to die or are raised for veal.
To produce the profitable color and texture veal is known for, calves are confined to crates that limit their movements. They can only stand up or lie flat on their stomachs, never able to extend their legs. They live in their own feces. This severe physical confinement prevents muscle development.
To further ensure that the flesh will be pale and “tender,” they are also deprived of all solid foods and drinking water, thus they drink excessive amounts of their only food — drug-laced liquid feed is devoid of iron and other basic nutrients.
After three or four months of living in such severe conditions, calves are sent to slaughter. They can barely stand, and oftentimes walk on their ankles on their way to slaughter.
By not buying dairy products, YOU can help bring an end to the brutal veal industry.
Treat ALL God’s creatures with
compassion and dignity...

Help us end cruelty in places where people worship!
Throughout the ages, human beings have accepted killing, violence and violent behavior as just being a part of life. And organized religions have perpetuated and endorsed this kind of thinking, burying their collective head in the sand.
Churches talk about peace and love and compassion while we take pleasure in hunting animals, bull fights and cock fights, horse racing and fishing. In places of worship, people wear clothing made from the furs and skins of tortured animals.
And most importantly, our diets are based on violence toward and the deaths of billions of animals. And these kinds of meals are supported, endorsed and promoted by most religions.
We are urging people of faith to include all of God’s creatures in all programs, activities, sermons, events and fundraisers.
