Baby Cow - The Shocking Story of Calves in The Dairy Industry
A male baby cow born in the dairy industry will be taken from his mother and killed shortly after. Needless to say, this practice leaves the mother cows traumatized.
This heartbreaking video from Farmwatch & SAFE reveals how the dairy industry in New Zealand treats a male baby cow. After the baby is forcibly separated from his mother, he is brutally beaten with a sledgehammer and left to bleed to death.
Separating between a baby cow and his mother is a standard and routine practice in dairy farms all over the world, and not only in New Zealand. Newborn calves are taken from their mothers in order to prevent them from nursing their mothers' milk.

Even though it sounds insane, the killing of calves is essential for the production of dairy and meat. The images are hard to watch, but it is vital that people see them.
Due to our desire to drink the milk of cows, dairy farmers tear babies from their mothers for good. Given that cows make milk for their babies, how can we justify this?
