I agree with Sivarama Swami. Where is the cow protection? It is too easy to go to the store and buy cheap, government subsidized milk and butter. Do the devotees realize how cows are treated these days, that most live a miserable life with no pasture or sunshine, that their offspring suffer by being raised for veal? Devotees need to appreciate the value of milk and butter and ghee. Take off your blinders. Buying milk from the store is the same as paying the farmer to produce it for you. Why aren’t we using the facility Krishna has given us for cow protection as we should?
By the way, in Srila Prabhupada’s day, factory farms were not common or just beginning. It is an unimaginably cruel way to farm that is the norm these days. At least cows that produce milk organically are probably allowed to graze for the six short years they are allowed to live.
