A cow named Emma didn’t have an easy life. She spent most her life on a dairy farm, producing gallon after gallon of milk. Like all dairy cows, Emma was worked to the bone, and once she couldn’t produce milk, that would be it for her.

Emma was an intelligent animal, and it almost seemed like she knew that her life had an expiration date.

A viral video showed the moment that Emma thought was the end. After years of work, she was put on a trailer, and she was terrified.

Animals have feelings. They can feel sadness, fear, happiness, and even stress. The moment Emma stepped on the trailer, she started to act differently. She was agitated and terrified. She seems to understand what getting into a trailer meant and she knew that cows like her will end up somewhere terrible.

Emma was a dairy cow, and just like any other cow on a farm, she only knew a tough life.

As we all know, these cows are best known for producing high-quality milk and all of the associated dairy products such as cheese.

For these cows to be able to produce the demand of milk, they are must first become pregnant, but as soon as they have given birth, their poor little calves are taken away from them.

Their milk is harvested for milk and its by-products. It’s a tough life, and if you think it will not get any worse – you’re wrong. Most cows who no longer have the ability to produce milk are brought to slaughterhouses.
