That’s not even true. Milk from the new mother gets milked into a separate container that is given to all the calfs. It’s not even that good for humans to eat because it has vitamins and nutrients that our body doesn’t need. And most calf hutches (the big plastic dog house thingys) are quite spacious. And most have a fence around them so they can stand outside.
This is what I hate about this type of media. Making dairy farmers look they are rabid heartless assholes. Most Farmers care about there animals.
1. if they’re in hutches…apart from their mothers…that seems heartless
2. they can’t even drink from their mothers. humans milk them with machines, and then feed the calfs separately. hmm
3. calves then get turned into meat. hmm…
4. mothers also turned into meat.
