A male calf is usually sold into the meat industry. The young cows will either be raised for beef or immediately used for veal. When Jerome was 10 days old, he was separated from his mom. Luckily, a worker on the farm fell in love with him and didn’t want to see him killed.
So, she arranged for him to be moved to a sanctuary. Amazingly, the Farm Sanctuary where Jerome went had just taken in a mother cow, named Liz, and her young calf named Cashew. The staff decided to try and introduce Jerome to Liz in the hopes that she would help feed him, she had plenty of milk.
Liz wasn’t quite sure about Jerome at first, but Jerome had no doubts! With time, Liz warmed up to Jerome, and now all three are a big happy family!
