1. We Are All Noah – Now on DVD
The powerful video We Are All Noah, produced by the Culture and Animals Foundation, is now available on DVD. The 30-minute video shows how concern for animals is a common theme of many religions. We Are All Noah considers a wide range of areas of animal mistreatment, including vivisection, animal agriculture, and “disposable” pets. The DVD can be purchased from the CVA for $6 each (to cover our printing and shipping costs). Send a check to CVA, PO Box 201791, Cleveland, OH 44120.

2. Milk Is Deadly for Male Calves - By Jim Skirha
Every year dairy cows are artificially inseminated to produce a calf to maintain their milk production. A little over half their calves are male. Since these males cannot produce milk and the need for work animals has been replaced by machines, they are useless to the dairy farmer. Such males would grow to a size of 1200 lbs. and live 20-25 and the cost of feeding, housing, and cleaning up after them would be huge. Therefore, the male calves are killed within a few days of birth, chained by the neck in a small, dark, cramped stall for 4-5 months and then killed for veal, or raised for 1 ½ years for beef. Because the dairy farmer cannot make a profit without killing the males, in every dairy product there is a hidden chunk of veal or beef!

3. February Peaceable Table Is Now Online
* One of Angela's recipes in this issue that you'll particularly want to try is the tasty and nutritious Red Lentil and Arborio Rice Stew.

* The February Pilgrim is Sola Wolff, who tells of her lifelong love of animals and gradual journey into a nonviolent diet.

* In the Pioneer column we present second part of the story of philosopher/activist Tom Regan, who is still with us at almost seventy years young.

* Our Poetry selection, by John Galsworthy, is the hymn-like "Prayer for Gentleness to All Creatures."

We always welcome letters and submissions, especially for the "My Pilgrimage" column.

Peace to all beings--
