Just a random thought.

They will eat you

Torn from my mother's breast.

This refers to plucking a fruit from the tree. Some trees produce a white milky sap while plucking the fruit. That refers mom child breast feed relation ship.

I have been imprisoned in a cave.

This refers to the process of riping fruits. People put fruits in a box with no sunlight or air to ripe it.

Why did they do this, and what will become of me?

They will eat you because they are hungry.

The story of the life of veal calves is who you are referring to.

Torn from my mother’s breast

Veal calves are raised on a milk formula supplement.

I have been imprisoned in a cave

Veal calves live the entirety of their short lives in wooden crates that severely restrict the calves' movement.

Why did they do this, and what will become of me?

The crates mentioned above are designed to prohibit exercise and normal muscle growth in order to produce tender “gourmet” veal. The tender veal will be eaten.
