Compassion in World Farming

Tonight I attended a really interesting talk on Factory Farming given by UCL Veg Society in association with Compassion in World Farming. The woman talked to us about intensive farming and how for example Nocton Dairies Ltd has re-applied to open a US-style ‘super-dairy’ in Lincolnshire, England. Now, a super-dairy farm would be an indoor factory farm with over 8000 cows, milked by machines, who would spend the majority of their life indoors, in a steel prison basically.

This was the video they showed us today and it gives you a little hint on how factory farming works and how Compassion in World Farming are trying to stop this.
