Ban Cruel ‘Udder Flaming’ of Dairy Cows

udder-flaming

Target: Rick Smith, President of Dairy Farmers of America

Goal: Ban the cruel practice of “udder flaming” dairy cows.

Udder flaming is one of the many cruel practices the dairy industry partakes in. Udder flaming is when a large flame is passed under a cow in order to burn the hairs off the udders.

If the process is done correctly, the cow is not burned. However, accidents happen and the cows can get severely burned and injured. In addition, this is a terrifying situation for the cows whether or not they get injured. Hair on the udders allows for more bacterial growth, which is why udder flaming is done in the first place.

Sign this petition and demand the Dairy Farmers of America ban this practice. Cows are social animals with real emotions and should not be subjected to this terrifying practice.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Smith,

Udder flaming is a common practice used among dairy farmers to burn the hair off of cows’ udders. A large flame is passed underneath the cow to burn these hairs.

When udder flaming is done correctly, the cow is not burned. However, the situation is very scary for the cows whether or not they are hurt. With that said, accidents do happen and cows have been badly injured and burned due to this practice.

Udder flaming is a cheap, quick way to get rid of the hair on cows’ udders. It is time these cows are viewed as animals that can feel fear and pain, rather than property and milk-making machines. Please consider banning this cruel practice and finding safer alternatives for the cows.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Luke 6:31 ~ Do to others as you would have them do to you.
    God created all the animals (Psalm 104). All animals belong to God (Psalm 50:10). God cares for the animals. “Jesus said: ‘are not the five sparrows sold for two copper coins and not one of them is forgotten before God.
    Maybe the farmers must feel what they do – burn their chest and pubic hair the same way!!!!!!!! All animal abusers MUST be fed to the lions!!!!!

  3. Animals are not trash! Animals have feelings too! Stop being cruel and use another harmless practice so that farm animals do not have to suffer!

    ARE YOU FUCKIN KIDDING ME!!? This is absolutely INSANE!! WTF is WRONG with PEOPLE! How STUPID does a person have to be! My gawd–the FEAR these poor cattle have to endure, all at the hands of worthless, POS humans!! I am totally outraged! How about from now on, when these HEARTLESS IDIOTS need a haircut, we just take a blow torch to their heads!! I happily volunteer my services! I hope everyone involved in this horrific practice BURNS IN HELL FOR ETERNITY!!

  5. Humans do not only NOT need milk, it’s actually harmful.

    This isn’t even the worst abuse in the dairy industry. Get rid of the dairy industry completely and eliminate the abuse entirely.

    EVERYONE will be healthier for it.

    Cows milk is for calves NOT humans!!

  6. If animals needed to have hair removed they would have been born that way.
    It is so hard to hear animals are being hurt each day and moment because people think it is what should be done.
    My family goes back generations and 100 of years and they never practiced this method on any animal.
    They took care of the animal because it was and still the way they make there living.
    Please stop this horrible practice and abuse.
    They do feel pain
    Would anyone if they where burnt.
    Thank you.

    I can’t believe i just read this! WTF is wrong with you cow farming people?? Are you nuts?? you obviously have no conscience and you should go to jail and never be allowed near an animal or another human being as long as you live. I would be VERY afraid of dying if i were you.

  8. I must second what Anne-Mari and Ann have said.

    This cruel, useless “practice” must stop!

  9. sabita patwardhan says:

    These people should be burnt in the worst way. First they force male calves from their mothers to take the milk (the worst thing of all) and then all the other extreme abuse and torture.

  10. This is some sort of sick joke gone too far. At one point I raised Gernseys, still have friends with Holsteins, and we never did this to our cows. Never. I don’t favor unnecessary regulations but if it’s needed, it’s needed!

  11. This is utter nonsense, next thing you know they’ll use waxing strips, flaming the hairs around their balls, might give them an inkling of the torture they endure.

    SIGNED & SHARED❗️😠

  13. Nancy Dunlap says:

    This is a barbaric practice that MUST STOP NOW!

  14. This is probably put out by PETA. Really people why would a farmer ruin their “cash cow”? These animals cost thousands. Common sense people. Put your thinking caps on.

    • Mary ELDRIDGE says:

      Your thinking is the problem why no one does anything to fix these things,put peta aside this stuff does happen! People are cruel to these animals where have you been?

  15. Humans inflict enough pain on animals. This is shameful. These animals through no choice of their own give everything to humans and they are all treated so badly. Disgusting. What is wrong with the world today. Makes me feel sick.

    • Please know that as a small dairy farmer; I have never heard of this – I don’t know one other dairyman around here that does this or any of the other “cruel” things I have seen online. Do not condemn or assume all animal owners are abusive. If a dog owner beats his dog-he should be punished and the animal removed from his ownership-same with livestock owners. Our cows have names; are on pasture and loved on daily. No hormones, antibiotics; tail-docking or any other bad thing!

      • Mary ELDRIDGE says:

        I think this is awful,they can feel and are frightened,what in God’s name is wrong with these farmers doing this!They are living breathing creatures that God put here for us and what do we do,ABUSE THEM!!! We use them for our purpose and we can’t even treat them the best that they should be!!! Get out of the busy if you have no feelings for them,I’d like to see these people treating this way!!!!I live in upstate N.Y. and I turned someone in and was told theirs no laws on the books for cows and other farm animals!I was shocked,someone needs to change this now,sooner then later,shoulder be a no trainer to all our wonderful politicians!!!

      • Thank you. We had a few cows on our hobby farm and one thought she was a puppy dog. Cows are lovely and loving and I am glad you treat them so.

    Dantes inferno…

  17. LAST INFANTILE AND GREED SCUM – NOT DESERVES TO LIVE WITHIN CIVILIZED SOCIETIES IN OUR ALL WORLD – ALL OF THESE CRIMINAL RABBLE IS BETTER DEATH and NOT DISTURB THE REST OF THE WORLD POPULATION AND FUTURE GENERATIONS WITH THEIR USELESS EXISTENCE, BASTARDBIRTH´!

    Stop & pursue this deformity – instantly!

    Not humane than barbaric, really stupid and worthless criminal and ignorant ASSHOLES, which should be caged for their whole lives! Or not?

    THE DEVIL SHOULD TAKE ALL RESPONSIBLE PERSONS AWAY – ONCE FOR ALL !

    ALL OF THAT INHUMANE MUD AND RESPONSIBLE NONPERSONS ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – FEED THEM TO ALLIGATORS !

    FLAME YOUR PECKER – AWAY

  18. Got to be kidding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT other insane evil cruel ways will they think of next?????????????????? & they wonder why we are hesitant to help the poor struggling farmers,,,,, yeh i’ll help torture them the same bloody ways, evil evil fucking MONSTERS!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I cannot fathom, who are these BARBARIC people who have come up with an idea to burn the animals udder to eliminate the hair. First of all those who invented this brainless baloney must be burnt individually, from their own hairs from top to bottom within their brainless bodies.
    These type of people does not understand the verbal communication or the verbal languages… SO The ONLY LANGUAGE they will understand is, if you give them the same treatment, while inflicting them with burning fire, burning the bodies to remove their own hair from those bodies… That would be the only language these morons would eventually understand. Please Boycott drinking Milk. Instead you can enjoy, Soya Milk, Coconut Milk, Cashew cream milk, Hazelnut cream milk, and several other creamers without having to make suffer the poor gentle cows innocent lives. I never drink Milk and always enjoy drinking variety of other creamers…It’s also extremely healthy.

  20. Cannot believe what I have just read. They use blow torches. Really. Are they insane or what !!!!
    This has got to stop. Now.
