Make it illegal to impregnate dairy cows sooner than 2 years after giving birth

Dairy cattle are typically artificially inseminated every year to keep them pregnant or lactating. This, poor diet, selective breeding for milk yield, and preventing them moving, contribute to diseases and them being killed at usually 2 to 5 years old. Cows' natural lifespan is around 20 years.
