Neighbors around Sunshine Dairy Farm in Newbury, MA called the
police to check on strange, distress sounds. Upon inspection the
police reassured them that nobody was in distress and that it was
simply cows mourning the loss of having been separated from their
newborn calves. According to police this happens every year.
Strange noises turn out to be cows missing their calves
“Residents in the area of Sunshine Dairy Farm may notice loud noises
coming from the dairy cows at all hours of the day and night. We’ve
been informed that the cows are not in distress and that the noises
are a normal part of farming practices.”
Not in distress??!! Cows mourn and suffer much like humans; and
therefore, separating them from their babies is cruel. Anyone who
consumes dairy is supporting this very inhumane “standard” practice
of not allowing calves stay with their mothers as God intended.
