The price of milk / dairy - separation of a cow and her calf
I am uploading this video because I think it is really important that everyone sees this. This happens on both large and small scale agriculture and even on family farms. In order for the mother cow to produce milk she has to be impregnated. As soon as she gives birth to her calf, her calf is separated from her (usually right after birth or a few days later). This is because she will be milked day on and day in and the milk will be given to humans. The dairy industry does not want the milk going to the calf and that is why the calf is stolen from his/her mother. The calf is than either chained up for veal production (if it is a male) or if the baby is female, she will go on to produce milk just like her mother. Only a few selected males will go on to impregnate the females. Nowadays the dairy cows are usually hooked up to a rape rack and the farmer either inserts his hand or a probe to artificially inseminate the dairy cow. This is nothing but rape and it is standard practise in the industry (even on small scale operations, including milk labelled "organic").
