Meet Billy, Douglas and Herbert – Rescued Dairy Calves

Posted by Jon in News, Rescued on Saturday 24/05/2014 16:28 +01:00.

Like all other mammals, cows have to produce calves to produce milk. Cows produce milk for their offspring, not for humans and so the calves are the dairy waste by-product.

The male calves and many of the females are taken from their mum’s at a day or so old and slaughtered, many end up in pet food.

We have rescued three bull calves, all 1-2 days old when we took them on. Billy, Dougie and Herbie are now being fed milk formula.

They have all met Boris our blind bull and whilst they get on well, its sad to see the calves thinking he’s their mum.
