Every year, millions of babies are stolen from their mothers. In the dairy industry, male calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth and sold to the veal industry. Many are confined to dark, filthy sheds where they will live their entire short lives chained by the neck in crates so small that they can't even turn around or lie down comfortably. When they are just a few weeks old, they will be killed.
Why does this happen? For one reason: so that people can drink the milk that was meant for the babies! Female cows only provide milk during and after pregnancy, so on dairy farms, they are repeatedly and forcibly impregnated. Female calves will suffer the same fate as their mothers—they will be treated like milk-producing machines until they are slaughtered for meat. Humans don't need to drink cow's milk—in fact, it's bad for us! Luckily, healthy alternatives like soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, rice and hemp milk exist and are easy to find!
In every glass of cow's milk, there's a little veal. Help save babies by pledging to ditch dairy!

Did you know that cows only produce milk during or after pregnancy? Despite what the dairy industry wants you to think, milk doesn't come from "happy cows"--it comes from cows who are forcibly impregnated, are often pumped full of antibiotics and hormones, are warehoused in filthy conditions, and have their babies stolen away from them shortly after birth. All so that milk can end up on a store shelf near you! Save babies, improve your own health, and help the planet by choosing to ditch dairy for healthier, cruelty-free alternatives!
