Jenna was intended to be shipped off to a veal crate or be killed simply because she is seen as useless to the dairy industry. She was born a twin with a male calf which means there is a 90% chance she'll be infertile. And if she can't have babies, she'll never make milk (yes, cows have to have a baby to produce milk - and most of the male calves are killed early because they are not valued by the diary industry). Because Jenna would be infertile, she is seen as no different than a male calf and would have suffered the same fate were it not for the compassionate daughter of the dairy farmer (her name is Jenna and thus who Jenna is named after) who helped her escape this fate. And now she gets to live out her life happily here at Life with Pigs Farm Animal Sanctuary.
