Milk . . . the perfect food for baby cows
In the 1920’s, cow’s milk was viewed as nature’s perfect food. And it is . . . for baby cows!
Cow’s milk is designed for baby cows, just like dog’s milk is designed for puppies and human milk is designed for human babies.
Baby cows stand, walk and nurse within 2 hours of birth. Baby giraffes must stand to nurse within 30 minutes and run to keep up with the herd within 10 hours of birth.
Cows, giraffes, lions, and tigers and bears all have milk specifically designed for their babies with the fat content and enzymes required for their survival.
Humans are the only mammal that consumes milk past the weaning period.
No other mammal drinks the milk of another mammal.
During the 1920’s, individuals consumed about 294 pounds of dairy per year. Today, the average American consumes about 605 pounds of dairy per year.

- Dairy cows are injected with antibiotics to prevent disease. These antibiotics are then ingested by humans when eating dairy products.
