The average life-length of a cow in Sweden i 5 years
(either they get sick because of all abuse they been through, or they
can't produce enough milk for the farmer's greed, because their bodies
are getting worn out). Ignoring the pain and the feelings of the cows,
they murder the cows when they can't produce any more milk. I understand
that many are very disconnected and actually do think that they do the
best they can for their animals. It doesn't change reality though.
the average cow become only 5 year [this is not "vegan propaganda", it
is numbers from the milk-industry] shows how abusive the average
treatment is and excessive milking is to cows.
An exceptional case (I
can't confirm it is true; and they would have been much less abusive to
her than what is the normal case) of a cow being alive until the age of
28 year doesn't change the average life length of a cow - not in US and
not in Sweden.
Having said this, I know there are farmers or
families who are less abusive to their cows, but it doesn't in anyway
justify killing their male-calves born (or selling them to someone who
will brutally slaughter them), and to use the animal for "our purposes"
[milk-products are only for "taste" and "enjoyment", and it causes
Taking the life of another sentient being is the biggest moral atrocity
one can do to any sentient being, and his/her family.
