Got Milk? How about Mercy for Day-Old Calves? MFA Investigation Reveals Barbaric Violence on Texas Dairy Farm

Hidden camera photos taken of dairy farm worker beating baby calves to death with a hammer, while others are left to suffer and die of neglect.

A dairy farm with a herd of 10,000 cows produces a lot of milk—and a lot of baby male calves—which are a liability rather than an asset to them. The cheapest and quickest thing to do is to get rid of them.

Bringing them to auction would be costlier since the price paid at auction by veal farmers may not be enough to cover the expense. So what’s a poor dairy farmer to do? Kill them humanely? Not a chance.

In this new hidden camera investigation by Chicago-based Mercy for Animals filmed over the course of two weeks at a Texas mega dairy, the method of killing calves is the most barbaric imaginable, causing the greatest suffering. The senseless carnage of this situation defies any logic, any semblance of how a “civil” society would treat defenseless baby calves. MFA is urging Texas authorities to prosecute workers and owners on criminal animal cruelty charges.

We can all make a difference by NOT supporting the dairy industry with our purchases. Finding alternatives is easy, inexpensive and better for our health and the environment.

We can also go a step further by supporting MFA’s courageous efforts. Sign up for their alerts and take action when called upon to urge officials to bring legal action against E6 Cattle farm in this case and stronger legal protections for farmed animals in general which are sorely lacking today throughout the U.S.
