About the Cover
Honey is a Jersey cow who came to the Humane Farming Association several years ago from a sanctuary that closed. Honey lives at the nationís largest 5,000 acre Farm Animal Refuge, Suwanna Ranch, in Glenn County, California. She and the other cows, mostly Holsteins, usually stay in the second valley where she was photographed.

            The fate of most cows has become worse than at any other time in the history of the United States. The big industrial dairies, where cows are treated like cogs in a machine, are buying up cows as fast as they can and subjecting them to repeated painful injections of recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), or as the manufacturer, Monsanto, calls this substance, Posilac, to make them produce so much milk that they soon sicken and die or are sold to a slaughterhouse. The meat packers have trampled on the US Humane Slaughter Act which Congress passed more than forty years ago to protect cattle, swine, sheep, goats and horses from the overriding greed of the enormous slaughter corporations.
