Calf Slaughter - The Killing of Baby Cows

Calf Slaughter - The Killing of Baby Cows

Calf slaughter is a practice very few people know about. However, the slaughter of baby cows a standard practice in the dairy industry.

Like all mammals, cows naturally make milk to nurse their babies. So in order for a cow to have milk, she must first get pregnant and have a baby.

Modern dairy farms, including small ones, separate the mothers from their babies soon after birth. If the babies are allowed with their mothers, they will nurse and hurt the profits of the farm.

After they were taken from their moms, baby cows who are male are killed not long after. This is done because they don't grow to be very big so keeping them alive is not economical (unlike calves the meat industry uses).
