Preventing Animal Slaughter

It’s obvious why farm animals must die to produce meat, but why must dairy cows and layer hens also go to the slaughter? It’s because, as cows and hens age, their production of milk and eggs sharply diminishes. At roughly a quarter of their natural lifespan, yields dramatically decline so these animals are no longer profitable. They’re sent to the slaughter and replaced with younger, more productive ones.

Still, more slaughter arises from the fact that dairies impregnate their cows annually in order to maximize milk production. This means that millions of baby calves are born each year, entirely as a byproduct of milk production. Many of these calves, and the vast majority of the males, are slaughtered when they are only days or weeks old.
