This Valentine’s Day, tell your loved ones to #BreakUpWithFactoryFarming 💔

Love is action – that’s why I'm at a dairy farm today ❤

Hi [FirstName,fallback=there],  I'm live at a dairy farm giving blankets and leaving roses for calves separated from their mothers. The dairy industry is founded on separating mothers and their babies – a heartbreaking reality for so many across the country. Calif…
