It's Alpro for me....
A few days ago while walking the dog I saw some calves in a field. Good photo subject I thought as I approached. As I got near the fence I realised they were tiny calves, practically just born. There were over twenty of them, standing and lying close together in the cold wind in a huge field, looking very sad. None was eating the grass, as they were far too young to have been weaned. I didn't take any photographs. Next day, as I suspected, they were gone, presumably herded into a lorry for slaughter.
Not in my name any more. I shall change to Alpro soya milk and Olivia spread next time I go shopping. It's not natural for any species to drink milk after early childhood, let alone killing the babies of another species so as to take the milk. In my eyes it's not morally right.
I'm not banging the drum by airing this; I'm just trying to rid myself of the image of those tiny confused creatures looking at me, all huddled together, taken from their mothers. Can't get them out of my head.
