The Truth About Dairy - Behind New Zealand's Milk & Cheese
You won’t believe what 4-day-old calves endure on dairy farms across New Zealand unless you see it with your own eyes. It is important to note that in dairy farms all over the world, not just in New Zealand, new-born calves are taken from their mothers to prevent them from nursing.
This shocking video from Farmwatch & SAFE reveals how a typical dairy farm treats 4-day-old baby calves. After the calves are forcibly separated from their mothers, they are brutally beaten with axes and left to bleed to death. No one should be treated with such violence, but in the dairy industry this is just standard practice.
