Love Animals? Love Animal Rights!

So how many cows are killed for milk, cheese, and other dairy products? According to a recent USDA “Livestock Slaughter” report, 297,000 U.S. dairy cows were slaughtered in the month of January ― the highest monthly figure since 1986. Roughly 3 million dairy cows are killed each year in the U.S., most between 3 to 6 years of age, at only a fraction of their natural lifespan, when their milk production declines. This figure doesn’t include the between 700,000 and 1 million male calves slaughtered for veal as a by-product of the dairy industry.
