Maddie was "humanely-raised." Like so many 4-H projects for schools, Maddie was eventually sent off to "do what goats do" at a dairy farm. She was placed in a field where she was beat up, bullied, and injured by the other goats, where she had to fight for her food, and where she was forced to breed over and over again in order to produce milk that was labeled "grass-fed," "pasture-raised" and "humanely-raised." She was starving, neglected, and suffering from countless physical ailments.
Maddie birthed two to four babies a year for twelve years. Every single baby was taken away from her. After all, she was there to produce milk, not to mother her children, who were themselves labeled "grass-fed," "pasture-raised" and "humanely-raised" as they were either sent to slaughter or off to suffer the same as Maddie.
