HOW DOES THE LIFE OF A COW IN THE DAIRY INDUSTRY END?

HOW DOES THE LIFE OF A COW IN THE DAIRY INDUSTRY END?
    ura soul
    by ura soul

    After repeated cycles of forced impregnations, painful births, relentless milkings and crushing bereavements (as a result of having all their babies stolen), their spirit gives; their bodies wither; their milk dries up. At the age when, in nature, a female cow would barely enter adulthood, the life of a cow in the dairy industry is over. When her milk output declines, she and her other "spent" herd mates are trucked off to slaughter. Some are pregnant; all are still lactating. As they are shoved towards death, they drip milk onto the killing floor.

    All Dairy operations, including Organic, exist solely by doing to millions of defenseless females the worst thing anyone can do to a mother.

    Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative says,

    "Economically, it is not possible for farmers to keep retired cows on the farm.... Organically raised cows will stay a part of the herd for an average of 6-8 years verses conventionally raised cows who only average 4 years...."

    (This means that organically raised cows have 2 more years of emotional and physical suffering and 2 more of their newborn babies stolen from them and murdered to become "veal"). Free of exploitation, cows can live up to 25+ years.
