Suffering in the dairy industry

New investigation reveals violence and neglect on UK dairy farm

Dairy's Dark Secret

Cows in the dairy industry suffer their entire lives. From the moment they enter this world they are treated like commodities and often develop painful medical conditions.

Just like humans, cows only produce milk for their baby. In order for us to drink their milk, the calf is removed from the mother shortly after birth. Cows are forcibly impregnated every year, putting her and her calves through a cycle of cruelty that ends with their slaughter.

By the numbers
