It’s #WorldMilkDay! I love milk. I’ve seen a lot of crap going up about #happycows and a lot of unpleasant stuff about how terrible vegan milk is (including the insulting #blockavegan hastag). I thought I’d write a quick little post in the interests of balance so here’s a few happy facts for all you friends out there…
And here’s some of my favourite cow facts, alongside the dairy facts I find most horrifying.
So there you go! I hope you all have a happy glass of milk today 🙂
