animalconnectiontx: drhollandxvx: tempeh-princess: amy—lynn: spoopyvegan: chronicallyvegan: Those are veal crates. In case anyone is confued: cows must bear calves in order to produce milk. The calves are then taken from the mother and not allowed to nurse (which is VERY stressful for the cows since they’re heavily social creatures) and they’re put in a veal crate for the rest of their (very short) lives.

Community Post: 15 Facts That Will Make You Consider Going Vegan
15 Facts That Will Make You Consider Going Vegan Visualised facts about the meat, dairy industries & vegan life, all laid out in black and white. Fact 003: Animal agriculture is responsible for up to 91% of Amazon destruction. Another reason to be #vegan
Not graphic or gory but no less deplorable. This is in Oregon. Each crate has a calf in it, removed from their mother one hour after they were born. The mother had enough time to clean up the birth, lick, smell and intially bond with the calf, before they were taken away to live in boxes. Death will ensue in approximately six weeks. Until then, here they remain, unable to move, so as to make their meat 'tender.' Then they become veal steaks. Please everyone, for the sake of all, go vegan.
if we didn't have dairy, we wouldn't have veal. the veal industry was only created and produce, because male calves were "unnecessary" for dairy production. now these babies are forced to endure torturous conditions and a painful short existence because humans want to drink milk, eat cheese, yogurt and all other dairy products

Our food industries are equal opportunity abusers: cows, chickens, pigs, and a special mention to those little calves who for their short, miserable lives are locked into crates too small to allow movement just so we can eat veal." ~ Ron Reagan
