Cosmetic Changes at Nocton Mega-Dairy

Nocton Dairies Ltd, the company in the centre of a row over bringing a US-style intensive dairy factory farm to the UK, resubmitted their plans last week to build their giant cow “prison” in Lincolnshire, this time claiming that they would reduce the number of cows from 8,100 to 3,770 – a figure that would no doubt quickly climb back up to the originally proposed number via further applications. What do we think? Whether one or 100,000 cows are held there – suffering is suffering.

The cows would be milked three times a day (two is the norm in the UK), forcing them to produce phenomenally high yields of milk and pushing their bodies to exhaustion from repeated impregnation. Their dearly loved calves would be torn away within 48 hours so that the milk intended for them could be sold.

This disturbing push towards the increasing industrialisation of the dairy industry must not be allowed. Anybody who doesn’t wish to be overtly cruel to animals should make the decision to steer clear of milk and all dairy products. Click here to order your free vegetarian/vegan starter kit!

    This cannot be allowed to happen. Man has gone crazy with his demands on the animal world. All for greed. We simply cannot go on like this. Let’s stand up against this barbarism.

    People often have the misconception that dairy cows lead a relatively good life. They roam the fields all day, settle into their shelter at night and get milked by the kind farmer a few times a week.

    As we know the reality is very very different. Horror factories like this need to be publicized more so the public can see what really goes on. And yes, they will try and increase their number of cows once they are up and running. More milk = more money.

    The only way forward is to go vegan.

    Many supermarkets have said they’ll not stock the milk from this ‘mega dairy’, let’s hope they stick to their word if the plans go ahead.
