It is the dairy industry’s best kept secret… Each year, hundreds of thousands of ‘bobby calves’ are killed at just a few days old — just so humans can drink their mothers’ milk.

Many people are surprised to learn that dairy cows are kept almost continually pregnant, only to have their calves removed and milk taken for human consumption.

Considered ‘waste products’ of the dairy industry, many male calves are killed in their first few days of life. Some female calves are raised to replace the mothers who are sent to slaughter as their exhausted bodies slow in producing milk, and dairy’s cycle of suffering continues

What you never knew about dairy...

You can stand up against the cruelty of the dairy industry by pledging to go dairy-free, opting instead for readily available alternatives that are kinder to cows and calves.


What else can you do to help cows and calves?

This pledge plays a vital role — but you can have an even greater impact for animals today. Here’s how:

  • Try these tips for deliciously dairy-free cooking and baking – and by sharing your tasty, animal-friendly creations with others, you can inspire more people to eat more kindly.
  • Share this moving video of Petal the rescued cow, who after ten years in the dairy industry, is finally able to get to know her calf, Little Flower.
  • Help to debunk the dairy calcium myth by sharing information about calcium-rich alternatives with friends and family.
  • Send a letter to Dairy Australia, demanding that calves are not treated as ‘waste products’.
