Milking cows is a dirty, monotonous job, and as we found out in our latest episode of Immigrant America, it's not a job many unemployed Americans are willing to do. But for some reason the government doesn't give dairy farms a way to recruit foreign workers legally, so most feel forced to hire illegal immigrants. This makes the farms and their workers easy targets for immigration authorities looking to fill deportation quotas. We went to upstate New York to try to understand the cat and mouse game going on between dairy farms and immigration authorities. We found a lot of wasted taxpayer money, racial profiling, and a broken system that unnecessarily treats family farmers and hardworking immigrants like criminals.

Immigration is extremely controversial right now as the Trump administration is keeping preschool children in "tender age" detention centers.

BULLSHIT AND LIES

This is classic VICE propaganda and distorted lies.

All employers that break the law should face severe penalties then I am sure they would have no problem finding American workers.

To say Americans won't do this is an obvious lie when it is American farmers right there doing it.

I did this unskilled work as a teen with much lower tech and much harder work

I moved enough cow shit mixed with hay to build a mountain. I bailed hay in the field, loaded it on wagons by hand, then unloaded it to be restacked in the highest reaches of huge barns. I was sweaty and filthy before 7am and I worked until after dark. I started at one dollar an hour and never made over $2.50 hr. in the 70's.

Since then I worked much worse jobs and much longer hours, but paid higher for the skills and efforts.

I am an American and I have seen few non Americans aquire the skills and willing to work the worst jobs that I and other Americans work.

Do not accept these lies.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction.

- Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation.

- Livestock and their byproducts account for at least 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, or 51% of all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.

- Livestock is responsible for 65% of all human-related emissions of nitrous oxide

- Cows produce 150 billion gallons of methane per day

- When killing birds like turkeys and chickens alone, The process of hydraulic fracturing’s water use ranges from 70-140 billion gallons annually.

- Growing feed crops for livestock consumes 56% of water in the US.

- Roughly between 442 - 8000 gallons of water are needed to produce 1 pound of beef

- Livestock and livestock feed occupies 1/3 of the earth’s ice-free land

- A farm with 2,500 dairy cows produces the same amount of waste as a city of 411,000 people.



The animal agriculture industry is so powerful they are able to hide the reality in order to keep selling their products. It is much the same for their environmental impact as their disgusting treatment of animals and the true nutritional information of the animals products and byproducts. I can send you all my resources for this information if you like 😀 I think it is worth while to help where we can! And this is such an easy thing to do!

It's not natural for humans to drink cow's milk. Cow's milk is a high fat fluid designed to turn a 30 kg baby calf into a 180 kg cow.
Cow’s milk contains Animal protein- which has been proven by people like doctor T. Colin. Campbell to promote cancer growth.
Animal Protein is far too acidic for the human body. In order to neutralise this acidity, the body leeches calcium and phosphorus from the bones. People have been mislead to believe that milk gives us strong bones, yet the countries with the highest dairy consumptions all have the highest rates of osteoporosis.
Dairy products like cheese and butter are high in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol, and are very low in vital vitamins and minerals. Diets high in fat and especially in saturated fat can increase the risk of heart disease and can cause other serious health problems like diabetes
Because cows suffer from a number of infections, like mastitis, dairy contains a considerable quantity of pus. A glass of milk will contain around 90-135 million somatic “pus” cell.
Dairy also contains bovine growth hormones, which have been linked to obesity and cancer.
It also contains antibiotics, and contaminants like blood and faeces.
Cow’s milk also contains casomorphins, a form of morphine which is highly addictive.
Fortunately, there are many non dairy alternatives and a whole-foods plant based diet can provide all the essential nutrients for long-term health.

Cow 🐄 shit is not that bad, you get used to the smell real fast to the point that it doesn’t stink, after a while When you leave the farm you start missing the smell. I worked on a farm half of my life. I learned everything I know from working on a farm. Their is nothing I can’t do from Electical, plumber, building, milking cows 🐄, shearing sheep 🐑,, repairing fence posts, what ever it take to complete a day. You just get use to it. Cow 🐄 manure is valuable, it helps plant 🌱 growth.
