|This is NOT a typical picture of what a mother cow looks like in todays world.|
A dairy cow is impregnated every year, so she continues to produce a steady supply of milk. This is usually done through artificial insemination.
Calves are removed from their mothers almost right after birth.
Especially in intensive dairy farming, cows are genetically engineered and fed growth hormones to force them to produce more milk.
The mother cow is continually impregnated year after year, her baby taken away, and after her "milk production" goes down, she is sent to slaughter to become someones hamburger.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY BESSIE.
