Picasso cows nothing but a marketing ruse by dairy industry


Cows’ milk is not meant for human babies.

I AM sure students at Orange Grove Primary School will have great fun painting Dairy Australia’s fibreglass cow (Comment News, May 17).

However, the Picasso cow initiative is nothing but a clever ruse by this billion-dollar industry to get young children addicted to dairy and thus increase its profits.

We read that children will learn where “their” food comes from. Well, cows’ milk was never intended to be food for humans. Like all mother’s milk, it is intended for no one but the mother’s newborn.
