Gold Coast farm claims it produces Australia’s only non-violent milkNovember 23rd, 2010 - 3:04 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Nov 23 (ANI): A Gold Coast farm has claimed that it is the only one in the whole of Australia to produce non-violent milk or Ahimsa milk.
Vrindavana Sevika Devi Dasi revealed that workers on the New Govardhana farm do not use dogs to round up cattle, machines for milking or send cows to slaughter, Gold Coast Bulletin News reported.
Vrindavana, who starts at 4.30am with a spiritual program in the farm’s temple, followed by hand milking at 5am, said the milk was much creamier and sweeter than normal milk because of the treatment of the cows.
Only six of the farm’s 70 cows are milked, but none of the milk is for sale, and the 80 Hare Krishna devotees who live on the farm do not believe in killing the animals either.
Vrindavana said the Hare Krishna wanted to make a stand against violence and show the dairy industry a positive alternative. (ANI)
