You now know.
"I’m saying that cows, if they are not milked regularly will stop lactating. If they are milked every day they will continue to produce milk."
Yes you’re quite right- cows will stop lactating if they’re not milked regularly. However, just like all mammals, they naturally wean their calves after around a year so have to be forcibly impregnated in order for production to keep going.
"The milk they make while they have a calf cannot be used."
This isn’t true. This is exactly the milk that they use. There is no other milk for them to use. They couldn’t profit any other way. Think about it logically- what other milk is there? This is why calves are never allowed to suckle.
"The veal are not male calves that are killed after birth."
Unfortunately, they are. If a calf is female, she is sent to live the same life as her mother where she will be raped annually and her milk will be stolen. If the calf is male, he will be sent to auction and whoever wins him will then slaughter him for veal.
"Just because I’m not vegan doesn’t mean I support animal cruelty."
I don’t really want to comment on this but all I’ll say is paying for the rape and murder of innocent lives isn’t exactly animal loving.
I’m sorry if I’ve come across harshly. I’m not trying to be mean either. I’m just stating the facts.
