Here’s Why Dairy Production Is Inherently Cruel

Whenever we post undercover videos taken inside dairy
factory farms, we receive comments from people claiming the dairy they consume
doesn’t come from such horrible places. But let’s get real: All dairy production
is cruel. Why? Keep reading.
While it may seem obvious, many people don’t consider that cows
must be pregnant or have just given birth to produce milk. The baby calf is
conceived through artificial insemination, a highly invasive and stressful
procedure.
After carrying their babies for nine months—just like
humans—mother cows give birth. Newborn calves are typically taken away from
their mothers within just hours of birth. Yes, this incredibly cruel practice
happens even at your organic, “happy dairy farm. So don’t even go there.
Understandably, this forced separation from their calves
causes the mothers to bellow for hours or days; they even pace and search in
vain for their stolen babies. Again, this heartbreak happens on every dairy
farm.
Case in point: In 2013, locals in Newbury, Massachusetts,
called the police because of crying
they heard
from a nearby dairy farm. Upon investigation, authorities
discovered the cries had come from mourning mothers whose newborns had been
ripped away from them.
Science has proven the mother-child bond is not exclusive to
humans. Imagine the anguish and stress mother cows endure—giving birth over and
over again only to have their babies torn away.
Male calves are killed for veal, and females are raised to
produce more milk. The cycle of abuse for females lasts about five years until
they are considered “spent and sent to slaughter.
Tragic, right? Watch.
There’s no way around
it: Dairy is and always will be cruel.
