When most people think of dairy farms, they likely picture green meadows where cows graze between milking sessions. Unfortunately, the vast majority of dairy cows do not lead such peaceful lives. Readers will learn how large commercial dairies do everything they can to produce as much milk as possible. They will also find out how poor farming practices can affect milk quality and harm the environment, as well as how they can choose dairy products responsibly.
