The Dairy Industry is Revolting!

Wed, 08/12/2015 - 13:12 -- Justine

Why are dairy farmers looking to increase milk production in an industry that is in decline? Should we be calling a halt to subsidies which would be better-placed helping farmers move over to growing arable crops?

This week cows were taken into a supermarket by angry dairy farmers protesting against the price they are paid for milk. About 70 farmers took two dairy cows into Asda, in Queensway, Stafford outraged that milk now costs less than some bottled water. It was a desperate stunt from farmers working in a failing industry.

Expert talk explores how cutting out dairy can do wonders for your health

EVER wondered what is in your food or how it was produced? Is it really healthy and how high is animal welfare? What is it that the dairy industry isn’t telling us?

Europe’s largest campaigning vegetarian and vegan organisation, Viva! are hosting a public talk and film showing in Cardiff’s St David’s Hall, taking an expert look at these issues, on Tuesday, May 15.

The event, in the St Asaph Room, will be led by Viva! founder and director and nutritional therapist, Juliet Gellatley.
