Disgust & injustice 😞😔👎🏻💔 Rp @belinda_vegan While small family-owned operations still dot the countryside, #dairy production now is dominated by industrial mega-farms, some with as many as 2,500 cows. Like veal calves — themselves a byproduct of the dairy industry — dairy cows on factory farms usually are taken from their mothers within hours of #birth so that #milk intended for the newborn calf can be collected and sold. The #unnatural#separation is believed to cause great #emotional distress to #mother and offspring.
From there, it only gets worse.
At least until the animal's execution at an unnaturally #young age — animal agriculture is based on a one-sided, exploitative arrangement intended to maximize efficiency at the animal's expense. The overproduction frequently leads to mastitis, a bacterial infection that causes #painful and chronic inflammation of the udder. Unnaturally rich diets also can lead to #ketosis, a potentially fatal metabolic disorder, and laminitis, a cause of lameness. -
In animal ag, dairy cows can spend much of their lives connected to milking machines that could exacerbate the pain of mastitis, are "dehorned" and have their tails "docked" (making it impossible to swish away biting flies), generally without painkillers, and are kept on a 12-month cycle of impregnation that allows for only three months of #recovery.
When they are no longer "productive" — usually between the age of two and five years, or roughly 15 years less than their #natural lifespan — dairy cows are taken away to be slaughtered, usually ending up as #hamburger on a dinner plate.
But not before still more suffering.
Because of the unnatural stress placed on their bodies, many dairy cows are too weak or sick to walk (thus the term, "downed"), and have to be pushed by bulldozer or dragged by tractor to their execution.
Though slaughterhouses are required to "stun" dairy cows into unconsciousness with a blow to the head before bleeding them to death, the process is far from precise. "As a result, conscious cows are often hung upside down, kicking and struggling, while a slaughterhouse worker make attempts to ren
