Unwanted animals shot at birth... or...

This video about UK Rose Veal is inspiring.  I knew that to get milk, a cow must give birth to a calf, but what I didn't know is that most of the male calves are shot at birth.  Please have a look at this film, even for a few minutes to get an idea about how dairy farmers and the RSPCA in the UK have banded together to give these calves a chance at life.

What is the situation in Australia?  I will endeavour to find out.  If you are a dairy farmer, I would like to invite you to leave a comment to give us your perspective.
