In recent years, the increased interest in goat dairy products has resulted in an industry that mirrors the cruelty of the largest cow dairy farms. Like cows, goats are artificially, and forcefully inseminated to create offspring. These newborn kids are immediately stolen from their mothers when born. Females are raised to replace their mothers on the milking line while males are either killed immediately, or kept for slaughter as goat meat. This process repeats until the mother is "spent" and then, she too is sent away to be slaughtered or killed. Many people think that by not eating meat, they are doing a good thing and saving lives. What they don't realize, however, is that dairy animals are killed for meat, just as soon as they are no longer useful in the dairy industry.
