Every Year, 9 Million Mothers
All females used for milk are torn from their babies shortly after birth.
They all beg for their babies in language that requires no translation:
After repeated cycles of forced impregnations, painful births, relentless milkings, and crushing bereavements, their spirit gives, their bodies wither, their milk dries up. At the age when, in nature, a female cow would barely enter adulthood, the life of a dairy cow is over. When her milk “production” declines, she and her other “spent” herd mates are trucked off to slaughter. Some are pregnant. All are still lactating. As they are shoved towards death, they drip milk onto the killing floor.
All Dairy operations, including Organic, exist solely by doing to millions of defenseless females
You can stop it!
From Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative:
“Economically, it is not possible for farmers to keep retired cows on the farm…. Organically raised cows will stay a part of the herd for an average of 6-8 years verses conventionally raised cows who only average 4 years….” (PPS: this means that organically raised cows have two more years of emotional and physical suffering and two more of their newborn babies stolen from them and murdered for Veal).
“We require that the packing plants (another word for slaughterhouse) get certified before we will do business. This means that our animals must be processed (brutally slaughtered) separately with clean equipment. This also means that they cannot use chemicals or pesticides in the plant.”
