..... imagine the strain of constantly being pregnant and giving milk.

New born calves are taken from their mothers within 24-48 hours of birth.
(Calves would normally suckle and bond with their mothers for 6-12 MONTHS.)

Male calves especially are considered to be nothing more than "unwanted by-products" of the dairy industry and are treated like disposable waste rather than as sentient beings.
