I'm 4 days into a 100% vegan diet, and struggling in truth, in particular the cooking/combinations of foods without meat/dairy.. This video has just strengthened my resolve to continue

I recently became vegan and it's the best thing I have ever done! down with this oppression

You could of shown people murdering each other, but not everyone does. This is misleading, just to get your point. A lot of places animals are treated with the utter of care.
Lauren Shorty
People say that vegans eat all of the animals foods and that if we all go vegan, there would be over population. Well the world would be a lot better if everyone went vegan. It takes less time to grow crops then to wait a few years to grow, raise, and eat a cow or any other animal. And think about all of the nasty stuff the industries are putting in or meat and animal byproducts... yuck! You get a lot more nutrients and vitamins from plants. Before I went vegan, I got really bad stomach aches after eating meat or fish. Now I feel sooo much better:)

To all the people saying that " animals kill each other in the wild, why can't we " yes they do kill but only as much as they need. We kill and breed in masses, this isn't nature ! This is abuse Also, I don't think I have seen a lion kill a mother buffalo for her milk. Humans are the only species on earth that drinks milk in the mature ages of life . do you know why ? Because we don't need it !
MajaLindArntzberg
Idiot, if you think every farmer is like this, then there is something wrong with you. Yes there is bad people in the world, but not every farmer ever is like that..
Just Hoopin'
This is terrible, but i'm still eating meat
Elena Alex
Oh dear lord sweet jesus. I will no more eat dairy products.
Kaylee Reed
Not all dairy farmers treat their cattle like this. I work on an organic dairy farm and we love our cattle and treat them as if they are humans. Never would we stomp on a calves head or do anything to abuse them
Sunfadedlovejaded
If I won the lottery I would buy 4000 acres in Wyoming and rescue farm animals and I wouldn't slaughter any of them.
Infinite DeD
If you are a vegan just remember the amounts of carnivore animals eating each other everyday in the wild...... If they can why can't we?
Celeste Sykes
OK. So maybe PETA don't always get it right, maybe their approach is a little brash. Personally I think that is the only way to get through to some people. But you cant deny that they are catching peoples attention. Animal cruelty is such a serious issue, how can we expect to solve any other world problems while we still pick on the most helpless of society. The way we treat animals is a reflection of who we really are.
Jodie Rafferty
Because of this video I've now officially became a vegan
sam martin
My mom said "that's not where my cheese come from" lol
Finding Your Serenity
I need to find an example of why grass fed dairy is bad too. I know it is but I need a decent video as my partners family are offended that I'm vegan because their grandad was a dairy farmer and looked after the cows LOL
Harry Milton
I urge you all to watch Earthlings, it will change your life.
Rados130
Couldn't we just get milk from a place that doesn't treat their animals like shit? Like a whole foods store or something?
Cassowary Gaming
People who take part in these acts of violence should all be treated like the animal see how they like it....

This video made me hungry, I want a mcdonalds hamburge right now
KarlaTheRomanticOne
I've been contemplating going vegan for a while because my cousin is vegan she's like a sister we are very close and seeing her life style got me thinking because aside from pork and meat I don't eat many animal products. After watching this video I've decided am DONE with dairy products 100% , now I don't know if I will become vegan am still on the fence giving up meat and pork for life very hard and big decision but I do want to give up eating animal products that I can give up and am starting with dairy products.god I cried so hard after watching this video
Advotiya Raskolnikova
This is one of the many, many reasons that I am Vegan. Those "men" who beat and abuse those cows are the worst, but people who continue to support this 'industry' in spite of knowing what goes on are just as complicit. I mean I wasn't born Vegan, and I was fairly ignorant for a time but now -- there is no excuse to support the abuse of innocent animals for a substance we don't need as humans.
helga van dijk
I've been a vegetarian for years. Recently I've seen some dairy documentary in the netherlands. I've always thought my country was decent and animals wouldn't be treated that badly as shown on vids like these. Oh boy was I wrong... Shame on you Campina. (big famous dairy brand here, I wouldn't want to know how the unlabeled milk cows that bring in the cheap milk are treated...) I've been living a vegan lifestyle for a few months now and ain't going back. I'm very anti-milk now! Eggs are still an issue... you kinda need them in many recipes... and there's no such thing as an egg replacer here as far as I know. At least I've always bought free-range eggs >.> (and I avoid eggs when I can)
Rachy
I try to avoid dairy when I can, drink almond milk, soy butter and just switched to soy cheese
Pumpkin Smasher79
There are people who need meat due to medical issues like Anemia, smart people get their milk & stuff from people who raise their own cattle at home, at least that's what i've seen living in Europe, don't know how you in 'merica do it.
Baylea Christiansen
as a vegan for so long now i feel i have the responsibility to inform people about what we're doing to the animals , our health an our planet. i don't see how so many people can see videos like this and not take action , and change to a compassionate diet for the better. so many people can turn a blind eye to this a say "its only one case" instead of saying "less investigate more" or "less change this". I've experienced so many people asking me "how can you be vegan? it must hard" this makes me easy , every time i see someone drink milk , or eat a stake , these are the images and sounds that play over and over in my head. and thats when i ask "how can you? it must be hard." these are my friends people are killing , this is my planet you're destroying. GO VEG!!
Johnny Veritas
Go Vegan!
Hannah McLaughlin
One of the many reasons I am vegan!
Danielle B.
I've decided to go vegan, not just for the sake of animals, but for the sake of the planet.  Meat and dairy farming is just unsustainable in the long-term and we're killing the planet with it.  I love animals, I love the earth.  I will be a vegan.
d ja
What's really sick and sad is that there are people that can watch this and STILL consume dairy products! : ( WTF
Angel girl
grew up on a farm, so animals being killed for food was part of life, and yes I made it thru this video from beginning to end., and yes I LOVE  a nice juicy steak... roast chicken, Animals was created for our consumption... enuff said
whistler crenshaw
Those guys look like sick monsters 😢🐮rip
sveltelester
iM GONNA CRY OMFF I JUST ATE ICE CREAM
Wolffey
This is awful but I'm still not going vegan
Lucy InTheSky
Yes, not every farm is like this. But plenty ARE. And I will not consume animal products unless I see with my OWN EYES how the animals are treated. And even then I probably wouldn't because I have no wish to be drinking milk from another animal as an adult or eating various substances that come from animals. I mean, wtf?
Georgia Araujo
Hi! I'm brazilian, so excuse my english. I teach Geography and whenever I try to warning about the mistreatment of animals. I opted to vegetarianism a year ago and now reduced 90% of all dairy products. I thought the fort useful video. Just do not forget to also publicize the suffering of chickens on farms suffering too! Best wishes.

Nara Villatoro
Man i feel bad for these animals they get really beaten D;
brockacherry
Just flagged this vid cuz its a lie the clips shown r from minor dairy farms not the entire major industry and a cow goes into a milking cycle on its own not forced u ungrateful savages plus vegans: plants also have feelings it has been proven so wat u gonna eat now?!
anavi bts
this is horrible, i barely made it to the end...no temporary satisfaction in eating should have a back story like this. humans were not made to feed on animal flesh, milk, and especially to torture them. remember we're only temporary guests on this planet, animals were here long before us and will continue to exist long after us, so learn to respect them
Paty Latorre
All these videos are breaking my heart... 
Quinobklyn
Wow thats crazy oohh well im enjoying my milk and Burger hahahhaa
S T
Oh they want you to go dairy free and if you give me a week and some research I could show you worst atrocities on these rice farms to human beings not animals. Low wages and slave labor for you to have your rice milk. Beef is good and we don't care how they kill them. Give it a few years when the american economy collapses you will be happy to have a steak and will probably kill the cow yourself.
Robin Hood
A little too fast with not enough info.. I think it can be done in 60 sec with some clarity around some facts/statistics that people can hang onto.. thanks for the efforts.. whatever works.. 
Un Om
It's not about eating meat and using animal products, is how we do it. If you raise your animal, love it and then watch his eyes while you kill it, something will change in you. You'll carry on, but you wont be the same. You'll be more connected to Nature and your food
Kevin Allen
Isn't it funny how the quality of this video looks like it was from the 90s? Dairy farms are not like this anymore!
owen williams
That is horrible those people should be sued 😢😭😰😱😭😭😭😭
TheHowlingWhiteWolf
Are all daily industries like this?
Sandcat
Even if I am the only person in the whole world who is vegan. I still will not partake. The only person I am held accountable to is me. It baffles me when people see these sorts of things and hate to see animals suffer, yet continue to support these industries. It's really not that hard to give up. And I should know. I'm lazy as all heck.
Heart Notes
Cheap shock video... there is nothing in here to expand upon each situation, just showing me animals with health problems does not surprise me, even the best zoo in the world will have sick animals. Even the best human city has ill people in hospitals. The only thing that made me wince was the guy stomping the neck of the cow.
Nancy Drew22
Feel so guilty for having cheese my second slip up on a vegan diet :(

Wait, they BURN mother cows if they take their babies?

Ummmm milking a cow doesn't necessitate maltreatment.... These are mentally ill people, monsters...

:( The ones that see this video and still choose to eat meat have absolutely no compassion.
Stuart See
Oh my God! Thats horrific. One minute vid has convinced me to go dairy free.
Grahbird
Why can't they just let them do it naturally
died.lln
this is stupid.. So a cow can't get sick or die? look first at all the people who dies just under your own window cause they can't eat something! and at a pont in the video they are removing the horns of the calves so they can't grow and don't injuries each other!
yikes no
Not all dairy farmers treat cattle like this
William Goggins
Why the hell would people stomp on another animals neck? Like what has gotten into this world? I would rather let them have a nice life and die at old age and then take the meat after their whole life.
Sally Souza
This video made me go vegan, I watched it like a year ago and now I just want to thank you PETA.
Meater2004
Why can't people milk a cow like a normal man,get eggs normally, and even shear normally...sometimes evolution sucks
Nara Villatoro
I hardly ever eat meat in my life It never feels right and if I do eat meat I say sorry to these animals
QuantumGaming
Hey You guys!! Greetings from austria! :) I like how you try to change the perspective on how we see meat as necessary and I hope you PETA only the best of success but could you please stop to generalize the dairy and meat industry? What is wrong in eating a cow that was raised well was good fed and had a wonderful and long lasting life? Both my aunts are raising animals and giving them a long lasting and wonderful life can you explain this to me why this would STILL be wrong. Try to still make me vegan I DARE you PETA.
TheDanManager
As a actual dairy farmer in Ontario Canada, milking around 210 cows, I find the hardest thing to stomach is your disregard for how the dairy industry really works. Ask any Dairy farmer who's up until 12:30-1 in the morning helping a cow have a calf and then getting up again at 5 to milk the cows again why he does it, they'll all tell you the same thing, because we love what we do, we were raised to love it. I would gladly take anyone on a tour of our farm to see just how passionate we are about our herd, cows we know by name that we have raised since birth. This kind of dedication towards what we do can never be told in 60 seconds. It takes a life time to fully understand our love.
Em Woolly
are you kidding me.. I currently work for on of the top dairy farm In Michigan and none of the cattle are treated in such a manner ... just because a few people are cruel and abuse their animals doesn't mean the entire dairy industry is that way.. do your research people use your own brain.. this is like saying that because there are a few murderers then everyone must be a murderer ... ignorance "scouf"
rojen145
I my self is 21 years old from Sweden, been a vegetarian ( i still eat eggs and diary) for 5 years and before when i was little i didn't like to eat too much meat.  But here's the thing i don't hate anybody who eats meat and i don't think that it is wrong to EAT MEAT, it is okay. I just made the choice not to consume it. But i don't support the industry,Factory Farming.on how they treat animals. Remember that there are nearby farmers and some companies who produce ecologic dairy and meat products. Who take good care of their animals. Do not hate people that's eats meat, we are omnivores, we are build to eat both but we can remove meat and continue to live an equal long lasting and healthy life compared to a meat eater (depending on lifestyle of course), rather demonstrate, make your voice heard against the industry who's only goal is to make as much money as they can, not caring for the health of their animals in the process. side note: i do think we humans consume to much meat, it should be more varied.
Raminta Ivanauskaitė
Breaks my heart to see how we treat living creatures. Innocent animals are beeing abused for you're fun and apettite. And the worst part is that by eating animal product u are getting fat and sick. Sorry for my bad English But u get the point

...when the internet was invented, and then enabling people to comment, it allowed us to understand the  quality of intelligence in the world, especially in the privileged countries, and from what I see here, in the comments, that level is very low, this is the reason the earth, its people, its animals and its nature are experiencing this extreme level of degradation, the consumers are really ignorant, even when presented with the realities, truths and facts, they still leave here with a socially retarded notion. and this is their world view!
EndieKatLuvsMC
Actually going vegan can be really bad for animals. First off, over population. We humans are part of the food chain. If we don't kill off and eat, animals would crowd the world. Second, we would eat most herbivores food. In case you haven't noticed, there are millions of people born every 5 minutes or so. If everyone went vegan, humans would eat all the herbs and plants, therefor, leaving animals to starve. However, people should at the least find kinder, more gentle ways to slay the creatures.
Michelle Gimmi
Disgusting. Vile. Unethical. No morals.
Tara Pauley
This is why I'm vegan - it kills me to think of these poor defenseless animal's suffering this type of heinous abuse everyday!  Eating a meat and dairy free diet is not only saves animals from abuse but it's also better for your health and for the environment. 
Jay Way
I DONT EAT DAIRY. MY ICECREAM IS FROZEN FRUIT SORBET. MY FOOD IS GOOD, TASTY. WITH HERBS AND SPICES, NOT MEAT. ACCORDING TO MEDICAL TESTS I AM IN BETTER HEALTH NOW THAN 20 YEARS AGO.

No Farmer's, No Food, No Future.. You PETA people have no idea what your talking about. 
Osvaldo Meza
I grew up with my dad being a Dairy Farmer. He showed me how to respect these animals. Now that he is a Cattle Rancher. I have never seen someone try to attempt to stomp a baby calf. Obviously its those workers who are giving everyone in the Dairy Industry a bad name.  
C Bell
I've been a vegetarian for just 9 months. Everybody told me not to cuz I'm so thin already. But I'm for the animals :) Ok, I'm thin, slimmy, weak ....so what? I can't die but they're dying, pain-ful-ly! :(  I'll try harder to become a vegan :) a healthy one! 
Rick Godfrey
I could only watch a little of this.  Made me sick to my stomach.  I had no idea this was going on. 
molos
As a veterinarian i am very well informed about these violating practices ,but i must say that not whole MILK or EGG production is founded on this type of animal cruelty. Home made milk and eggs by small farmers are something completely different thing. The small farms animals do not suffer the same bad life conditions and do not share their suffering. 
Sethrin Tatu
These farmers are disgusting. May God have mercy on their souls the day they die. What's being done about this though? How can we make it stop?? Breaks my heart.

It's a very graphic video, and we want to make sure that kids or people who may be sensitive to graphic material aren't exposed to it.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
Almost every scientific study within the last 40 years or more has proven that animals like bears, cats, monkeys, birds, fish, and cows are sentient beings who are completely self-aware and conscious, and numerous studies come out daily further proving the amazing abilities of animals. Animals feel pain and think just like you do, and they want the same things you do like love, protection, and happiness. Plants have no brain, central nervous system, or nerve endings and don't feel pain.

The only way to be sure that the milk you drink isn't contributing to this is to not drink dairy milk. There are lots of alternatives now, like soy, almond, rice, coconut, and hemp milk, and they're all very healthy for you; in some cases, even more so than dairy milk! Visit peta . org/living/vegetarian-living/dairy-replacements.aspx for more info, and let us know if you have any more questions!
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
That's wonderful to hear! Congratulations on your newly found peaceful plate :) There are tips on how to talk to non-vegans at PETA.org and how to approach them without coming across as aggressive or preachy. It is a sensitive subject for most people, but we have great tips on how to get the convo started. Try bringing vegan baked goods to a friends house next time!
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
While a political movement to raise awareness and change these practices would be great, it's unlikely to happen anytime soon. The most effective way to directly speak out against these cruel practices is to go vegan, so that you're not consuming the products nor giving your money in support of this. For more info on how to help, visit PETA.org
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
Great question! Plants cannot feel pain because they lack a brain, central nervous system, and nerve endings. In regards to drinking milk, it is not essential for any human to drink; it's only essential for baby cows to drink. There are hundreds of other beverages available now, and if none of them appeal to you, there is always water.

Factory farming and factory dairy farms are common industry practice. The farmers generations ago operated at a smaller capacity and had different industry practices. For any questions about the work we do and why, visit PETA.org

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
The animals that we euthanize at our Norfolk, Va. office were rescued from negligent owners or found on the streets, and they are the sick, diseased, injured, mutilated, abused, and suffering, who unfortunately have no chance of recovering or being adopted to a responsible, loving home. We work as best we can to place all of our animals, but sometimes euthanasia is their only respite from a world that forgot about them. For more info, visit features . peta . org/petasaves/
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
We feed so much grain to animals in order to fatten them up for consumption that if we all became vegetarians, we could produce enough food to feed the entire world. In the U.S., animals are fed more than 80 percent of the corn we grow and more than 95 percent of the oats. The world's cattle alone consume a quantity of food equal to the caloric needs of 8.7 billion people—more than the entire human population on Earth! For more information visit PETA.org
