No MILK, BUTTER or CHEESE is worth animal cruelty. If you drink dairy milk, you support dehorning, a process conducted without painkillers that results in severe and sometimes chronic pain in cows. Get the facts here.

most dairy farms dehorn before the horns can grow, this minimizes trauma. we dehorn calves at a few weeks with a de horning paste, which is a strong paste that kills off the horn cells. all the calves do afterwards is rub their heads and try to rub it off because it stings a bit, but there is no squalling/ other signs of irritation. after that theres no more fuss about horns. another fun fact is that ‘polled’ genetics are making waves, which is basically where the trait for horns has been bred out and now cattle are born without horns.
