Mickey was born in late June 2022. He is a Holstein cow, which is one of the most popular breeds of cows used in dairy. Mickey came from a small dairy in Vermont, where his mother lived all her life as a dairy cow. She was 9 years old when she gave birth to him. Her milk is sold for human consumption, so Mickey isn’t able to stay with his mom or get her milk. We were so lucky to be able to bring Mickey to the Sanctuary when he was a little over a week old. He is growing and will become a gentle giant. We expect that he will eventually weigh 1500 lbs!

The natural life expectancy of a cow is around twenty years. Some get up to 25 years old. In animal agriculture cows usually don't live more than five years.
