THE TRUTH BEHIND THAT GLASS OF MILK, THAT PIECE OF CHEESE.
In order to produce milk, a cow must have a calf. Cows used for dairy are repeatedly impregnated, often on what the industry calls of "rape rack", to keep their milk production high. The cows are milked by machines multiple times a day, often live in filthy concrete stalls or crowded barns, and suffer from diseases such as udder infection mastitis.
After only four to six years of their natural 20-year lifespan, they are worn out and sent to slaughter. The cows are packed into trucks for often long trips to the slaughterhouse. In winter, they my freeze to the sides of the trucks; in summer, they may die from dehydration or heat stroke. At slaughterhouses, they are shot in the head with a high-powered steel rod called a captive bolt gun. If that doesn't kill them, they are skinned and dismembered while still alive.
Just one of the cows female calves will replace her mother in the milking herd; the rest of the calves will likely be sold for veal. Calves used veal are stolen from their mothers just days after birth and chained by the neck in crates. They are fed and iron-deficient formula to keep their flesh pale, making them sick, weak and unhealthy. After 12 to 16 weeks they are slaughtered. Yes they slaughter babies. The veal industry is just one of the heartbreaking results of the dairy industry.
When you consume dairy products, you are responsible for breaking the bonds between mother and child. Animals exist to live their own lives, not to supply us with ingredients!
