Breaking the Mother-Calf Bond: The Untold Story of Milk

July 18, 2014



Source Free From Harm
By Robert Grillo

I grew up, like almost everyone else I know, never questioning what my parents and friends’ parents fed us. And when I eventually went off on my own to college, it still never occurred to me to question the glaring ethical implications of a diet heavy in dairy products. And even after I became a vegetarian in my 30s which I attributed to my deepening connection with yoga, I still never thought to question or connect the lives of countless dairy cows and their young with my food choices.

Not until my mid-40s did I finally wake up to the many appalling facts behind dairy farming, most notably, the inherently cruel and forceful separation of a mother cow and her newborn — an unavoidable consequence of dairy farming in countries across the world. It is no wonder to me now why society hid and continues to hide this ugly truth behind caricatures of happy cows designed to protect children and even mature adults from the truth. This vortex of denial is not only a tragedy for the animals involved; it exposes a cognitive dissonance, an unhealthy disconnect from our most fundamental values of kindness, respect, justice and equal consideration that we hold very dear.
