Milk industry in Sweden and USA, it we are against violence towards animals we shouldn't kill a cow/hire someone to kill a cow

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.

That 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 diseases: http://www.news-medical.net/news/2005/09/12/13120.aspx]. Taking the life of another sentient being is the biggest moral atrocity one can do to any sentient being, and his/her family.
