Calves are not allowed to drink from their mothers, if these are milk-cows because of a EU-rule. Dehorning is customary to prevent cows injuring each other, only cows that are kept by organic farmers are not dehorned, but maybe they should, angry cows can kill!

I visited a farm today, cows had horns and calfs lived with them. Nothing happened. No cow was injured. It is just a problem, when too many animals are kept in a too small area. I think, it is really tragic, that our society has to consume so much meat and milk, that the animals cannot be treated well! So yeah, go back to organic and stop this! www.kuehe-haben-hoerner.ch!

And something more: Cows need their horns to communicate and for body care. They have nerves and it hurts to burn them as calfs! (In the Netherlands, they make a local anesthesia, but not in Switzerland or other countries).
