Thank you for your explanation and expansion of the text. We who are not versed in Hebrew are certainly at a disadvantage in such exegesis. Perhaps for a common interpretation you could extend the meaning to include the prohibition of killing a calf (etc.) while it's mother is still lactating and denying the cow it's inherent nurturing of its newborn. Of course eating Veal falls into this category. We have as a society adopted a seared conscience with respect to killing immature animals for both consumption and gain. Reply
