With heartbreaking new footage from a British dairy farm, today we’re shining a light on the cycle of cruelty that exists in every glass of milk.
Filmed by one of Animal Equality’s investigators, this short non-graphic video is a moving reminder of how the bond between mother and calf is cruelly and routinely broken on dairy farms.
Shortly after a cow gives birth, her baby is taken away from her. Usually, they’ll never see each other again. Much like humans, cows have strong maternal instincts. They will call out for their calf for days or even weeks after they’ve been separated.
The milk this cow produces for her calf will instead be taken from her to be sold. She’ll be forcibly impregnated every year, putting her and her calves through a cycle of cruelty that ends with their slaughter.
We know how much suffering takes place in the dairy industry, but so many people are still unaware. Please, share this video with your friends and on social media, and help us spread the word about the torment cows endure for every pint of their milk sold.
