essizephyr@cassandraajane she's just been born on a dairy farm so she has a future of forever being pregnant, having calves and then being separated from them, eventually when she is too old to give birth, she'll be turned into dog meat. I one day will have a farm of rescue animals and save all the cows from this horrible life, then force everyone to drink soy/almond/other milks that don't come from cows.
cassandraajane Poor gorgeous baby! Cows need to be milked, but modern society's want for as much milk as they want then and there is unsustainable for the land and cruel for the animals. I drink soy milk and I'm sure if more people swapped to cow milk alternatives the industry would have to change.
essizephyr@cassandraajane exactly right, I don't know much about what would happen if they weren't milked at all but I do know that now days, they are impregnated and milked all through the pregnancy until the last couple of weeks, then milked after the baby is born all the way until the next baby is born. Basically, if they didn't milk them their utters would dry up and the cows become "useless" but if they fall pregnant and have another baby they produce milk again... It just all makes me so angry.
essizephyr≀meet Salem ☿ we have just saved him from a home for disabled people where an autistic boy choked and hanged his two siblings, he is very traumatised as you can imagine he has been through a lot, nervous little kitty. Time for some extreme TLC≀1mon
