The Animals’ Angels investigators checked on the condition of the dairy cows inside the huge dairy feedlots. They drove by massive manure lagoons. One can only imagine how poisoned nature is in this area. They noticed that a few dairies had closed. Again, they saw dead calves and cows discarded along the road and cows struggling to walk in knee high manure, their bodies emaciated and limping.

They found a downer cow, left behind in a pen with no water or shelter. They visited the thousands of calves that are kept in solitary confinement in tiny wooden crates. It is heartbreaking to see that these babies never get to play or move around and that their day is only interrupted by a worker that empties and fills the bucket of milk replacer in front of their crates. They couldn’t help but wonder: Where are all the happy cows?
