Milk is vegetarian because you're not eating the cow. If you refuse to eat any animal products meat or otherwise, you're a vegan. There is a big difference. There really isn't a reason to poll this, as it's the definition of the terms. Pretty cut and dry if you ask me.

sigh, let me explain

 

Before a mammal starts giving milk it needs to be pregnant and give birth to offspring. In the case of a cow it needs a calf ;). So they need to get a calf at a rate of one per year (more or less) to keep producing milk. The farmer only needs a small percentage of offspring to keep his herd at the same size, so most of the calfs are slaughtered when the milk production is good and going. When a cow is too old it also goes to the slaughterhause. So yes, to produce milk you have to kill animals, I kind of thought that was common knowledge ;)

I thought they simply gave them a lactate inducing drug.  :s
