"Five Freedoms Dairy was founded by veterinarian Kevin McSweeney with the goal of creating a small but sustainable dairy focused on providing cows with a healthier and more enriched life. The centerpiece of this enrichment is Five Freedoms’ system of leaving the cows with calves after they are born, an uncommon practice here in the US.
BECAUSE OF OUR METHODS:
- Our cows typically live twice as long as the industry average.
- Our cows have significantly less hoof and leg issue than animals confined to concrete.
- Calves stay with their mothers for months instead instead of the standard practice of separation after birth.
We hope to create a model where the small dairy can thrive."
