“Ditch Dairy” Demonstration in New Paltz, NY

May 12 , 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Woodstock Farm Sanctuary is planning an advocacy event and demonstration for Mother’s Day weekend to shed light on abuse and cruelty inherent in the dairy industry.

Cows are emotionally complex, social animals who develop close relationships with other cows.  Mothers and calves (like baby Gershwin, pictured) have especially close bonds, yet in the dairy industry they never get to experience these bonds. Three million dairy cows and calves are slaughtered each year in the U.S. as part of this exploitative industry at only a fraction of their natural lifespans, which can be up to 20+ years.

Animal advocates will gather to show a non-graphic video that sheds light on this industry and to sample and offer guidance to interested participants and viewers about going vegan or decreasing their consumption of dairy, and we will ask those interested to sign a vegan pledge.
