Industrialisation Of Dairy Farming

EDM number 20 in 2012-13, proposed by Adrian Sanders on 09/05/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Agriculture and Animal welfare.

That this House notes that pressures are building for the increasing industrialisation of UK dairy farming and that a growing number of cows are being kept indoors for all or most of the year, many of which are pushed to extremely high milk yields; further notes the 2009 report by the European Food Safety Authority which concluded that breeding for high milk yield is the major factor causing poor health and welfare in cows; and believes that the factory farming of dairy cows must be brought to an end.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
