Fortunately, a twist of fate allowed Rosebud, a special needs Holstein, to enjoy many happy years at CAS. Holsteins, like Rosebud, are the most popular cow breed used for milking.
We know them as individuals: Russell is goofy and affectionate, Tucker is kind, soulful, and extremely emotional, Mama Sherman watches out for everyone, especially her children, Caleb and Buttercup, and Doc? Well, he's kind of a jerk--is there always one in every crowd? We would no more eat them, or their milk that's responsible for so much suffering, than we would eat our dogs or our cats. And thankfully for all of us, we can still enjoy ice cream during Ice Cream Month or at any other time of the year without participating in suffering. Today's non-dairy ice cream is delicious. Groceries throughout the country carry a wide variety of cruelty-free ice cream in various flavors. My favorite, So Delicious, is heavenly.
Ronald Reagan was both revered and vilified. I wasn't a fan, but I won't hold National Ice Cream Month against him. Instead, I'll enjoy my So Delicious, and for all the right reasons, hope you'll give it a try, too.
