There is a possibility of death due to injury and eventual infection if a dairy cow is not milked. Many wild or "less-domesticated" (if you'll allow) breeds of cattle, bison and other bovines don't suffer from the same danger.

Searching the document shows that the actual numbers put forth by EPA are Animal farms produce as much manure as small and medium-size cities. A farm with 2500 dairy cattle is similar in waste load to a city of 411,000 people. The quote on cowspiracy.com takes this entirely out of context and talks about generic waste instead of specifically about manure....
