Dairy Farming

Female calves on Dairy Farms

This is how female calves live on #dairy farms; Confined in isolated pens like this one from the day they are born for the first 2-3 months of their life. Dairy farmers love to call this lonely, deprived, motherless existence “individualized care.” — their mothers were trapped behind, able to smell their babies but only see the back of these glorified dog crates. They will never be together again. Eventually, these daughters will be transferred to the group pen and on to the dairy herd of suffering mothers. Their mothers will have already been slaughtered. To keep up with the absurd and unnecessary human consumption of her cow milk, she will be forced to give birth before she is 1 year old.
