Garrett Zevgetis says:

Great stuff…not only is it the right thing to do, it’s profitable as well. And I bet the milk tastes better! The cows even looked happier.

David Stevenson says:

I tried viewing it several times, but it gets stuck while downloading, near the beginning.

Nancy says:

This is the only way to produce milk if we must drink the milk that was meant for the cow’s calf. Large dairy farms who produce mass quanities of milk are unsanitary most of the time and the dairy cows suffer tremendously and never have a good day. The people who produce milk the “wrong” way only care about making more and more money and not care about our health or the fact that their dairy cows are tortured for years before they are slaughtered for meat which might be full of steroids and anti-biotics; and what happens to all those calves that the dairy cows gave birth to?? It is an ugly business most of the time so to see someone who “GETS IT” is wonderful …….and the environment and the cows will be better off. This man has his place reserved in Heaven !!!!! God bless him.
