What is so inhumane about milking cows? Actually it gives them relief from full udders. It doesn't hurt them.

In my book PETA has been over the wall for a long time; this just reinforces my opinion. Let's face it folks, the vast majority of us are omnivores! We eat meat as well as vegies and grain. This is how it is. At least in this country, the aminals we slaughter for food are dispatched in the least painful manner possible. It happens. Live with it or go vegan. You have a choice.

I'm not a dairy farmer but I'm not understanding why cows would suffer from being milked. Cows have been milked for thousands of years so what's the problem? Seems to me I remember when I was breast feeding that my breasts were very painful if I didn't empty. I would think this would happen to the cow also. What happens to the milk if the cow isn't emptied? Anyone have the answer?

Dave and DQ, the issue isn't not milking a lactating cow, it's that they repeatedly impregnate milk cows so they will continue to give milk. Not my POV, theirs.

That is correct... and then yanking the calves from their mothers. Then there are the milking machines that do cause damage to the udders over time. That is what my comment was about on having stricter guidelines.
