Dil The Newborn Calf Was Dumped On The Side Of The Road. See His Amazing Transformation

Rescuers got a call that an abandoned newborn calf was dumped on the side of the road. Male calves born to dairy farms are often removed from their mothers and discarded typically right after their birth. They are dumped to stop them from drinking even a one drop of their mothers milk. The dairy farmers view the calves as unnecessary byproduct to the mother who is producing milk for their profit. This little boy had clearly just been born, as he was still wet from his afterbirth. No baby should ever be taken from their mother like that. They had left him on the side of the road to die, but thats when rescuers step in.

They arrived on the scene and discovered a little boy who was desperate for some love, comfort and MILK. They took him back to the Animals Aid’s shelter in India. This sweet little boy was named Dil which means heart in Hindi.

Back at the shelter they began to bottle feed him. Rescuers did everything they could to let him know he was safe and loved. Immediately his energy perked and he became a new calf. As the days passed he grew stronger and stronger.

Facts about calves: The first milk produced by the cow is called colostrum. It contains vital nutrients and antibodies for the calf’s well-being, and the calf must receive colostrum in order to be healthy as an adult. Calves must be kept with their mothers for at least 48 hours to ensure they receive adequate colostrum.

Like all mammals, cows must give birth in order to make milk. Like human mothers, they carry their babies for nine months, then begin to lactate for the sole purpose of nourishing their young. Virtually all dairy calves are stolen from their mothers within hours of birth in order to maximize profit. 97% of newborn dairy calves are forcibly removed from their mothers within the first 24 hours. The rest are removed in a matter of days. On so-called humane dairy farms, cows are often taken within the first hour of birth as separation of mother and calf is considered less stressful when they have not been allowed to bond.

Back to Dil’s story. After 2 months, he now is a healthy and happy boy. He is now ready to leave the baby pen and play with The Big Boys. He will live out the rest of his life in the shelter with other calves who were rescued just like him.

Thanks to the work of Animal Aid, these little guys have a chance a life and a good life that is. At the shelter Dil is able to run, play and interact with all his friends. He is clearly one happy boy.
