Veal calves are kept in tiny crates completely immobile. So that their flesh stays tender and white they are fed a liquid diet that is low in iron and has little nutritive value. This heinous treatment makes the calves ill, and they frequently suffer from anemia, diarrhea, and pneumonia. These calves become frightened and suffer greatly from painful malnourishement and from being so lonely.
Because of your consumption of meat and dairy you sentence 21,000,000 calves each year to a life full of suffering. Please stop and go vegan.
