Dear Madam, dear Sir,

Imagine being born, taken from your mother and either bludgeoned to death or sent to the slaughter house mere days later.
You're nothing - just a waste product of the dairy industry. This is what happens to 1.7 million NZ calves.
HSUS Investigation of Catelli Bros. Calf Slaughter Plant

Saddest Slaughterhouse Footage Ever Shows No Blood Or Slaughter

Many of us were absolutely horrified about the cruel treatment of calves, both overseas by NZ farmers and on our own farms here in Zealand. Shockingly it is still legal for farmers to bash calves to death with a hammer, or any other implement.
This must stop.
Because they are not needed by the dairy industry, every year around 1.7 million calves are treated as mere waste products with little or no attention given to their welfare.
These are bobby calves - vulnerable young animals no longer needed and brutally discarded.
The Government proposed that blunt force trauma may not be used for the routine killing of unwanted dairy calves.
This will not solve all the issues and there will still be millions of calves routinely killed as ‘waste products' it is a step in the right direction of recognising that the suffering of these baby animals matters.
