Regrann from @vswolf - #Repost@belinda_vegan ・・・ CRYING FOR HIS MOTHER HE WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN.The heartbreaking reality of what happens every day on dairy farms across the globe. A #mother recently gave birth, only to have her #baby stolen from her without any regard. Cows crave #affection, have #emotions, and have feelings just like any other living being. In this sense, they are no different from your household #pets! Just like #cats and #dogs.In fact, cows are very social animals that can make lifelong #friends, and form strong bonds with their young. Knowing this, how could anyone be ok with separating this poor mother from her #child?
Sadly, this most likely won’t be the last time she is separated from her baby. Many people don’t realize that in order for a mother cow to produce milk, she has to give birth. Unfortunately, because that milk is often designated for human consumption and profit, dairy calves are taken away from their #mothers. For most #babies born on farms, they will either be doomed to the same fate as their mothers or raised for meat. Either way, this isn’t the sort of life, suffering, or #hopelessness any living being should be exposed to.
We can all help make a difference for these animals by opting out of the cruel animal farming industry and choosing plant-based alternatives instead. _ The good news is that based on the rapidly rising numbers in the dairy-free markets, consumers are actively looking for healthier alternatives to #dairy proteins. This is a trend seen both domestically and globally with the plant-based milk market set to hit $16.3 billion this year.
