The Spiked Nose Ring: The Cruelest of the Cruel

The reason they insert these cruel devices into a calf’s nose is so that the spikes will poke the mother cow when a calf tries to suckle on her udders. The mother rejects the calf because of the spikes.... Why would the dairy industry inflict this cruelty on babies and mothers? So that they can say (truthfully...) that they DON'T seprate babies from their mothers.

Calf nose rings

The UK dairy industry’s absurd campaign “Februdairy” is a response to the hugely successful
Veganuary which encourages people to go vegan for January, and throughout the year. Now in its eighth year, Veganuary has a record high number of over 500,000 participants in 2021, up from 400,000 participants in 2020, and 250,000 participants in 2019!

Now in its fourth desperate year, the dairy industry has added a challenge to its Februdairy campaign: Every day, participants are invited to eat cheese from a different dairy—and there’s a box of cheese that people can order so that everyone participating can eat the same congealed sample of suffering and violence on the same day. There’s even a new hashtag: #cheeseadaychallenge. Be sure to include this hashtag in your posts against the vile dairy industry so that people will see the truth about this vile enterprise that is based on cruelly separating babies from mothers.

One of the most disgustingly cruel ways that the dairy industry abuses cows is the SPIKED NOSE RING, a standard device used by dairy farmers (on small dairy farms too). The reason they insert these cruel devices into a calf’s nose is so that the spikes will poke the mother cow when a calf tries to suckle on her udders. The mother rejects the calf because of the spikes. If you don't believe that these devices are used, do an internet search for "spiked nose ring cow" and see what you find.

But WHY does the dairy industry inflict this cruelty on babies and mothers? SO THAT THEY CAN (TRUTHFULLY) SAY THAT THEY DON’T SEPARATE BABIES FROM MOTHERS! They aren’t separated, but they can’t nurse or bond! The mammary secretions intended for the babies are stolen for humans to consume, so that the dairy industry can profit from animal exploitation and suffering!

Imagine the torture of babies trying to nurse from their mothers, and being unable to do so because of this device, all so that bovine mammary secretions (actual baby growth formula) can be stolen for humans to consume.

THIS IS THE DAIRY INDUSTRY! PLEASE STOP SUPPORTING ANIMAL SUFFERING AND VIOLENCE! Please buy plant-based products!
