Life Sentence: The invisible faces of dairy

Painted by Philip McCulloch-Downs (acrylic on canvas board).

Painted for Viva! ( in support of their campaign against the dairy industry.

All these faces are from current cattle markets in the U.K. as of May 2015. None have been altered in any way.

Over 5000 species of mammal produce milk to feed their young.

One species continues to drink it after weaning.

This they steal from another animal.

The Dark Side of Dairy

Cows produce milk to feed their babies - just like humans. It flows for the best part of a year and then stops. More milk requires more babies. That's the reality of dairy farming - the visible, obvious side of the industry. But there is another, cruel, much darker side to dairy which few see much and even fewer know about.

Film: Sentenced to Death

Part 1

The Captive Bolt Pistol does not cause instant death. It is a method of stunning that -- if used correctly -- stuns the animal, so that the heart carries on pumping after they have had their throats cut. However, this can and does fail -- leaving some animals fully or semi conscious and in pain whilst they are bleeding to death.
