In order to produce milk, cows must give birth – just like other mammals. In the dairy industry, calves are taken from their mothers immediately after birth, an emotionally painful experience. A mere byproduct of the industry, female calves are kept to replace spent dairy cows, while males are usually raised for veal.
Mother cows bellow for days for their missing calf before they finally give up.
Mothering instincts are incredibly strong, just like with mothers of other species, including humans. Newborn male calves sent to the slaughterhouse are seen suckling the hands of the slaughterhouse worker before their throats are slit.
Dairy cows are symbolic representatives of all of the animal mothers whose lives and reproductive systems are manipulated by humans.
'Talking Turkey' leafleting with the Vegan Family Extraordinaire- and other lovelies :) Every year millions of Canadians eat turkeys as part of their holiday celebration. Many may choose to buy an "organic" or "free-range" turkey, but those turkeys face the same issues of breeding and slaughter as any "factory farmed" turkey. Eating a turkey is a choice- and you can choose a compassionate and truly humane option by opting for an animal-free holiday meal.
