OK so by definition this is a good thing. Just think, in a few generations time there will be no more triathletes.
but pirates will be ok AL becuase how many of those do that many miles on the bike every week.
..we will have baby pirates for years to come
2 weeks after the Vasectomy, having not tested the remaining ammunition for live ones., the wife had a c-section(child 3.): The doc said to her twice, while we have you opened up we can tie up your tubes for you. No we said this stupid looking Welsh husband next had a vasectomy two weeks ago!! So no need.
The doctor(female) looked at me like I was a superhero as a vasectomy in Italy is as rare as The Popes Offsprings.
I still could cry about it now, 4 years later.
I agree IW´s first comment did have the taste of Oysters too it!(so I´m told.....cough)
They would be very thin otherwise.
vegan's do not eat animal products on the grounds of the suffereing caused to obtain them. i'm not sure that ejaculate really falls in to that category! (except, perhaps for GSPORT )
'tis quite a good excuse though.
not that many - honey perhaps.
dairy would be out (where to the offspring go).
eggs possibly ok but they would need to be free range and vegans agree that this creates the potential for fertilisation.
what did you have in mind?
Have you ever seen a cow that's overdue for its milking??
but surely cows are just like humans..............if you stop milking them then they will stop producing it so would only be painful for a short period JJ.......
I wouldn't like to be milked everyday just to save some money on the shopping bill
If you milked a high yielding cow 3 x a day, she would produce more milk than if her calf suckled her. But mellifera's point I think was more along the lines of the calf having to be seperated from its mum and either eaten, or raised from a bucket. I dont consider either cruel, but we're entitled to differ here.
Not sure what, if much, about sheep rearing is cruel though... no AI, no seperation, very little "pressure" to produce large numbers of offspring as 2 is the norm for a mules and they cant really raise 3....
i can understand someone thinking that dairy farming is cruel, i was just wondering if that means that milking is always cruel.

Not really. She'd get mastitis and it would be pretty painful. Once they're in full lactation you have to dry them off gradually till they are producing less, then you can stop.
