COWS HAVE TO BE PREGNANT TO PRODUCE MILK. DAIRY COWS ARE REQUIRED TO GIVE BIRTH TO ONE CALF ANNUALLY IN ORDER TO PRODUCE MILK FOR 10 MONTHS OF THE YEAR.

THERE’S BEEN A GENERAL MOVE FROM SMALL FARMS TO LARGE SCALE, INTENSIVE PRODUCTION.

ECONOMIC PRESSURES ON THE DAIRY INDUSTRY HAVE LED FARMERS TO SEEK GREATER EFFICIENCY AND INCORPORATE TECHNOLOGY, RESULTING IN SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN DAIRY HUSBANDRY WHICH MAY COMPROMISE WELFARE.
