In this video, we see baby calves licking each other’s faces. While that component can be perceived as incredibly adorable, it’s also downright heartbreaking. We can see right before our eyes how emotional and loving these animals are, yet they are locked up in stalls like prisoners.

These sweet calves are tragically destined to become veal. When male cows are born into the dairy industry, they are considered “waste” because they cannot produce milk, so they’re sent to the veal industry only moments after birth.  They’re then put in crates like the ones in this video, isolated from their mothers and deprived of all care. These holding stalls are designed to severely limit their movement so that they don’t develop any “unnecessary” muscle mass, that would make their meat tough. Everything about this industry is rife with suffering.

In spite of the cruel reality that these calves face, we can see in plain sight how these emotional beings will stop at nothing to show love and affection to their fellow calves. But there is also desperation behind their actions – without their mothers, they’re seeking nourishment and attention from others. This video may be difficult to watch, but it is a poignant reminder of the cost of our food choices.

They are incredibly social beings. What makes us think we have the right to do the horrible things we do?

When is it going to wake people up, they don't need cows milk, the baby cows do, so, its still all about instant gratification, aborted babies, or eating babies.

dear people talking about quitting meat and veal: thats a good start. thank you for listening to your compassion and empathy- that's super important in the world we are living in. these babies however are NOT produced for the meat industry, but for the dairy industry. They are a dairy byproduct because the mothercow only gives enough milk after having a baby. Hence their suffering is in every glass of milk and bit of cheese. I write this here because it took me way too long to wake up to this truth (it's not like the dairy industry wants us to know!!) and went vegan. i thought i'm doing right by the animals and the environment as a vegetarian. And i wish I had awaken to the perversion of the dairy industry longer than 6 years ago. But I eventually did- and am living a much better and healthier life without dairy. also because, you know: we are NOT calves. We had our mothers milk and thats ALL we need.... namaste!
