Did you know that nearly all cows in the dairy industry are born with tissue that will develop into horns? These horns are rarely seen because farmers destroy this tissue on young calves or the horns themselves once they start to develop. Practices include burning young calves with hot irons to sear away the tissue and gouging horns out of calves' skulls.
There is a simple solution: breed for naturally hornless, or "polled," cattle. Other companies are taking these steps, and California Pizza Kitchen must follow suit. Will you please take a moment and click here to urge California Pizza Kitchen to take action? Thank you.
Thank you for all that you do for animals.
