I don’t think cows on little farms are treated like this
You are wrong. All dairy cows are kept pregnant over and over again - this is the only way to produce milk. Their calves are either used as dairy cows (if they are female) or killed for veal (if they are male). All calves are taken from their mothers soon after birth.
When cows are no longer producing enough milk or cannot become pregnant again (or have other health issues) they are sent to slaughter. Dairy farmers, large or small, would make no money if they kept all the male calves and spent cows. This is the dairy industry.
No that is the non-organic, huge farm, mass production farming that happens because of overpopulation. Not little farms that make organic products and don’t mass produce
So you are trying to tell me that little farms don’t need to keep their cows pregnant to produce milk? That is biologically impossible.
And that they keep their cows for their entire lives even after they stop making money? That would make them no money. Dairy is all about money.
Please do some research. You are lying to yourself (and to others likely). All dairy farms operate in this basic manner. Some may be better run than others. Some may treat their cows a bit better. Some may keep cows with their babies just a tad longer. But what you are saying is incorrect and in no way based in fact. Where exactly are you getting your information from?
I have quite literally worked on a dairy farm (one at university when I was an animal science major for various classes, and one small organic farm when I was 12). I have seen these things first hand. I know exactly what I am talking about.
I responded on my phone above so I couldn’t add all of this before:
Do people really not know how mammals work?!
It is endlessly frustrating. So many people think that cows will just produce milk, or that they will produce it constantly while having calves occasionally. I wish I could say that a lot of these people are children, or just young. But I have encountered well educated adults who still think this is true.
my heart says yes but my mom says no
Alternatively: my heart says no but my mom might say yes so I’m gonna say she says no so I don’t have to go
