Every year in New Zealand, millions of days-old ‘bobby’ calves – mostly males, but also females superfluous to requirements – are slaughtered. It is the most tragic practice in an Industry that severely exploits dairy cows.

One of these individuals is Lynley Tulloch of the Starfish Bobby Calf Project.
