What happens to the male calves?

We give them away to local ranchers.  It is impossible to raise a bunch of males on a dairy farm.  That would be a disaster and very dangerous.  On top of safety, the cost would also put us out of business entirely.  If any dairy farm tells you that they raise their male calves for their entire natural lives and they are never sold for beef, then I would say they are flat out lying to you unless they have an enormous charity and large swaths of land with proper fencing in order to do so.
