    The calves are removed from the mother and the mother continues to produce milk, as physiologically, the milking process has the effect of the calf suckling and so the mother continues to form milk for its, now long gone, calf.

    It's a cruel practice these days. One of many that industrial farming has turned into an abhorrent treatment of animals.

    If you want to drink something truly revolting try using Soy Pus with International Roast. Soy Pus is not Milk because Soy plants never lactate regardless of how many calves they have.

    Ill treatment of farmers by price-fixing, too big to argue with Company monopolies. Farmers can only piss in a limited number of vats to try and make their product taste and be worth what they are told they will be paid for it.
    Imagine if buyers purchased gold at $2750 spot and then told all sellers that they would only receive $2500 next time, regardless of what spot price is and how many dealers would walk away if they had no say in the matter apart from "take it or leave it."

    How is that cruel? It may be morally repugnant to you but unless it is harming the animal then it can't be termed cruelty.

    Re: @alor's video, the hammer thing is true though in Australia. The tractor thing is probably a breach birth, I didn't watch much of the video and had the sound off so I'm guessing, as you know both animals would've died if nothing was done.

    It's cruel, believe me. You just have to hear the bellowing from the mother and calf as they are pulled apart to understand that animals have quite involved emotional lives.

    I'm not sure that is a rational position.

    when some one who lives in the city and never worked a single day on a farm thinks they are experts because they watch youtube vids of third world countries.

    It makes no sense to mistreat a Dairy cow, they cost allot of money, and stressed cows dont produce enough milk. dairy cows are looked after very well in most first world countries, after all its the farmers lively hood that relies on healthy non stressed cows to produce more milk.

    Can you please read it and comment?
    It is crazy town to the max.
    I must be reading it wrong because from what i was taking in she is suggesting that landlords give tenants a share in properties they rent and that owners that rent provide wrap around service for their tenants.
    I must be reading it wrong though i'd imagine because that is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out there.

    but in reality, we only keep chicken, males got the mince
    the video are usually filmed without the owner knowing it?
    may be a calf is too big for milk

    people kill people most of the time

    Trumpty is embracing the socialism as I've said he would, ushering in the nwo just as planned.
    A man with no real convictions of his own is easy to persuade.

    Where are the republibots with their outrage at the bailouts and spending??
    Of course they have nothing to say.

    It would’ve been a bull calf and it happens in Australia.
