Dairy cows do have a very short lifespan and when they have filled up their usefulness (within a couple years of their life), they are slaughtered for meat. Same goes for chickens. Both also aren't treated very well during their short life. It is a shame. I do think dairy though isn't the best for our health but eggs aren't so bad. Although I gave up dairy/eggs/meat for health reasons, not for animal rights reasons.

It is also possible to avoid soy and give up dairy. I actually eat very little soy and usually it is in the form of tofu or edamame. Again, just FYI. I believe everyone has a choice in the food they eat. Not eating meat is a big step for many so I'm happy for those that can choose that path.
