This Sunday, May 9, we celebrate Mother’s Day and the cherished bond between mother and child. Tragically, our dairy cows, world-wide icons of motherhood, never get to see or nurture their babies.

Newborn calves are torn from their mothers at birth and turned into veal cutlets, so we can drink their milk. The grief-stricken mother cows bellow for days, calling in vain for their babies’ return.
