Re: “Prodigal Farm: Where goats are livin' the dream

There's nothing the human body needs that it can't get from plant based sources. Going to those sources directly, insures health, is less harmful to the environment and is certainly kinder to the goats, kids, cows and calves. The happy images in this article do not represent the truth about the harms involved in dairy production and consumption.

With a fraction of fats and calories, great sources of calcium can be found in almond, rice, sunflower, hazelnut and soy milks... Most, just like dairy, are fortified with vitamin D. Calcium rich foods also include leafy greens, and a wide array of fruits, beans, grains and nuts.

To get your nutritional needs by going through another animal first seems wasteful and ill advised. Please - Stop filtering your nutrition through others first. Eat smarter, live healthier - Go Vegan. ?

Re: “Prodigal Farm is growing, along with its humanely raised herd

I'm always amused, or rather appalled by the many folks who just love to use the phrase "humane". They think it relieves them from any sort of scrutiny. But let's just investigate what that word really means:

From Webster’s New World Dictionary
Humane Hu·mane / hyoomáyn / adj. 1. having what are considered the best qualities of human beings; kind, tender, merciful, sympathetic, compassionate.

It's a perversion of the word to think that it could possibly apply to the orchestrated, for profit or personal benefit, killing of healthy, sentient beings. It is killing for greed and/or gluttony. I suggest you own it - At least you'd have that much integrity because as it is it's just feel-good-placebos for snuffing innocent life. Thankfully, a growing number of us just aren't buying the lies any more!
