Female dairy cows are killed at around 5 years old; males killed much younger

November 17, 2010

Some male offspring of dairy cows are killed when only a day or two old. A very small minority of dairy cows make it to seven years old. Their normal lifespan exceeds 20 years.

See our food guide for a list of healthy, delicious, cruelty-free alternatives to dairy.
