There are 94.4 million cows in america, and 78% them are in dairy farms. That’s a lot. All these cows are kept in tight metal cages, that surrounds their whole body like a harness. They have to stay in there their whole lives in a space they can barely lay down to rest. Throught their lives they are also milked so hard that it’s horribly painful, and then killed. Right now at this very second, millions of cows are suffering, and we have to do something about it soon. If we don’t, we will just keep putting these innocent animals in pain, while they are doing us a favor.

A natural free-roam cow would live for 20 years. But in dairy farms/factories, they only let the cows live until they are 5 at the most. At 1 year old, some calves are sent to a place called a feedlot, where they are injected to get fatter and then get sent to the butcher. Or, the female calves get sent to the farms to get pregnant and then milked for the rest of their lives in  the very unsanitary, small, and tight cages. They don't get any happiness throughout their lives. After a calf is taken away by its mothers, it may cry so much that its throat can get overly dry, which can diagnose it with a thing called streptococcosis, which is strep throat except for animals. It can be very painful.

The cows are usually given surgeries, like getting their testicals taken out or getting their horns cut off. During all the injections and surgeries they may give to the animals, , the farmers do not give the cows any medication or anesthesia to reduce the bad pain. Nor do they give the cows anesthesia when they get killed. Sometimes the cow may still be awake, and they get their necks sliced. Imagine getting your neck sliced. Well that’s what happens to many cows. This is reality, and like I said, we need to do something. This is harsh animal abuse, and the government is letting it pass, which is not okay. After all these years since the early 1900s to today, the percentages of cows which are also living things, are tortured and treated like slaves their whole lives, has gotten ridiculously high.

Every since the early days, we have used other animals such as horses, donkeys, elephants, mules, buffalo, etc. as our workers, just so we don’t have to do the work. For example, people used camels to cross the deserts, or cattle to carry wagons. But what we have to think, is these are other living things, and we took their land and now were using them as slaves. It’s like the Europeans taking over the Native Americans and making them into slaves!

If we don’t realize and spread awareness soon, the percentages of cows in America are gonna slowly go down. We may even cause them to go extinct if we keep it up for years to come. If you want to do something, all you need to do is tell other people about it. That’s all you have to do. If you did want to make an even larger impact, you could always go vegan. I believe that if the percentages of Vegans went up over time, that may impact the dairy businesses, by causing less amounts of their products being bought. That may have to make them decrease amounts of cows being killed, and could potentially run them out of business. If you did not want to go vegan, there is always the better option to buy meat from local free roam farms, or finding grass fed meats at your groceries. So what are you waiting for? Let’s save our cows!
