Cows now can produces 93% more milk than in 1975. In order to reach the productivity, there must be some methods to be used on those cows, which we cannot ensure the healthy, sustainable and humane methods for all farms. As the result, most cows cannot live as long as before because of that. Normally, every cow only reach the high production for 3 years. After that, they are transferred to be slaughtered. Calves need to be born every year, and they are taken away after one or two days old so that their mothers can provide milk for human consumption.
