Heartwrenching Photo of Veal Calf Shows the Real Cost of a Glass of Milk
Many people refuse to eat veal. After all, by now, many people know that veal is in fact, a baby calf that has been subject to a pitiful life of standing alone in a crate. Farmers limit their movement as to ensure that their muscles do not develop too much because it would render their flesh, tough as opposed to tender.
What some people may not realize is how intertwined this cruel practice is with the dairy industry. The reality is without the dairy industry, these calves would not exist... This is how it breaks down: farmer needs milk, a pregnant female cow produces milk, so they impregnate a cow via a device named a “rape rack.” Once the cow gives birth, the farmer yanks the calf away so that they don’t consume any of the precious milk, and collects the milk to sell for profit. Now one of two things happen: if the calf is a female, she is moved and set up to follow the footsteps of her mother and become a dairy cow, if the calf is a male, he is moved and set up to live out a short life of misery as a veal calf. both scenarios are dreadful.
Sometimes it is easier to leave the dots unconnected and not delve too deep into the realities of animal agriculture, the cruelty present in it. That being said, at some point or another, it is important for all of us to truly analyze our current food system and ask ourselves: is this really the type of system I want to be supporting?.
