Samuel is a rescued calf from the dairy industry by Gaia Sanctuary.
Cows are like any mammal: to produce milk, first they have to give birth.
In the dairy industry cows are artificially inseminated annually to be continually giving birth to produce milk for humans.
When the baby is born, they are taken from their mothers and caged.
Their milk will go to humans, who do not need the milk of another species to be healthy, unlike the calf, who the milk is produced for.
If the baby is a male, he will be sent to the slaughterhouse, or chained up and raised for veal meat.
but if female, will be raised to follow in the industry chain just like her mother. The natural Life expectancy of cows is about 25 years, but being so exploited, they are usually sent to the slaughterhouse at only 4 years old, being so tired they often cannot even stand.
There alternatives to milk and cheese, made from plants/nuts and they are much healthier and cause no harm. Please go vegan for calves like Samuel.
