“Dairy” is an industry term used to label calf milk.  A calf is a baby cow.  Calf milk is produced by a lactating cow to feed her offspring.  A cow lactates when it is pregnant or has given birth.  Calf milk is a sustenance and growth food biologically designed to feed a baby cow, not a human of any age.
