WATCH: What the Dairy Industry Does to Baby Cows
Vegan TV presenter Jasmine Harman provides a glimpse into the lives of cows on dairy farms in a video that isn’t graphic or bloody – but is heartbreaking.
This cow’s anguish and helplessness as her baby is taken away, never to be returned to her, is something every mother can relate to. The host of A Place in the Sun narrates the video:
In the natural order of things, his mother would begin to suckle him, and he would bond with her. However, on all dairy farms, including organic ones, they are torn away from her shortly after birth, so that the milk intended for them can instead be consumed by humans.
The cycle of cruelty never stops for these animals. And as Jasmine points out, humans are the only species that drinks the milk of another species.
