For the veggies that don't know what goes on in the dairy industry. There is no use for the male calf, that's why veal was created. Most farms have the cow get pregnant every year and a half called refreshening. The male calf is killed right away or raised for veal. Even the small organic farms have no use for them. They usually just kill them and the female of course is worth money and can be sold easily. In factory farms the male calfs are put in super small cages. So for the people that are vegetarian for ethical reasons, need to think of this and the egg industry. Also, factory farms are so evil and inhumane which most people on this site know, but they have killed vegetarianism. Buying from factory farms is not vegetarian!. If you are going to be vegetarian, please spend the extra to buy from smaller companys and hopefully local.

it is amazing how many vegetarians also eat dairy and eggs. true by eating dairy you are not eating an animal but the products from dairy cause undue suffering to dairy cows and thier calves. it is heartbreaking to know that every yr a cow is forced to have a calve that most of the time is taken away withing a few hours of birth. this baby is cruely put in a veal crate or simply slaughtered if it is a male. a female is still removed and bottle fed and than used for dairy when she is old enough.
it is not humane to eat dairy products simply because it causes the undue suffering of dairy cows and thier babies.
