Victory for Cows! Nocton Dairies Withdraws Cow ‘Prison’ Application in Lincolnshire

Champagne corks are popping at PETA headquarters this evening, as PETA staff celebrate the news that the company they fought to defeat, Nocton Dairies, has withdrawn their plans to build an intensive dairy unit in Lincolnshire. The facility would have likely meant severe suffering for thousands of cows, something PETA pointed out as it campaigned for almost a year to ensure the facility would never see the light of day. More than 6,000 of the 14,000 registered objections received by the district council came from you, our wonderful PETA supporters!

Cows on intensive dairy farms are forced to produce unnaturally high yields of milk, and their bodies are pushed over the limit by repeated impregnation. The calves they love are torn away from them within a few hours or days of their birth so that the milk nature meant for them can be sold in supermarkets. Whilst commending those who voiced their opposition to the construction of this house of horrors, we ask the public to spare a thought for the cows currently suffering for the dairy industry and make the compassionate and healthy decision to dump dairy.

    I am sure that we PETA have had a hand in them withdrawing BUT National papers are giving the credit to the Enviroment Agency who, and rightly so, were concerned about the amount of by products of cows that was to be kept in big resevoirs on site and the possiblity of it entering our waterways and ultimatly drinking waters. Just a shame that not more mention was made of PETA involvment and objections.

    I cannot tell you all how happy I am at this news.

    Thanks to everyone who helped with this and to all of you who love and respect animals.

    Bless you all. x

    I cant belive how small minded you people really are! How is this a victory for smaller dairy farmers? nocton would have no impact to them as businesses. Small dairy farms unfortuntly are no longer vaible becuase the consumer want somthing for nothing. You want cheap milk, but you dont like how this is prouduced. You want small dairy farm but you wont pay for it. ALso you object about this one but there already is herds wth over 2500 cows in? Poultry farming is already like this. The future of farming is large scale whether you like it or not.

    Dairy farms are cruel, particularly in Europe where the animals are confined and live a miserable life. We should onl drink milk in case it is naturally produced, like in Hare Krishna ‘s farms or old fashioned ones. Otherwise, we just could dump it.

    I am pleased to hear of this decision. Current methods of dairy farming are bad enough – but it seems we must endure them – but this proposal was out of all proportion to what is manageable in the countryside environment. They were trying to gloss over the problem of waste disposal, but on such a huge scale how can this be taken care of when even a normal small dairy farm is full of waste both around the cows in the barns, and in the yards and fields near the farm. The cows can slip in their own waste and break bones! And often do. Some farmers are very lax about clearing out the slurry, and then the more cows they have, the more slurry they have to get rid of, and it goes into slurry pits in far-off fields, then leaches into watercourses. And hey presto – POLLUTION!

    dairy cows’ lives are not natural,unlike somebody here claims!
    They’re under a huge stress because they just have to push for more and more milk until their udders are so huge they can’t walk properly.
    it’s called breeding and I often wonder where is the limit.
    the farmers who can breed these kinds of cows are prised and greeted with gifts and certificates.
    because the dairies are under this stress they get ill very easily.They’re also under a constant threat of injury.
    I’ve seen many lives gone,many cows suffer,even if the farmers have tried to care for them well and used vet’s help.
    Also I’ve seen a lot of lamenting when their babies are taken away right when they’re born.
    I often feel pity for the cows,but as a farm worker,I try to take care of them the best I can.
    I know it’s not enough,but it’s all I can do.

    Agradeço a Peta e todos que participaram desta conquista maravilhosa.
    O ser humano deve entender que nunca se terá paz para todos se não respeitarmos a vida de todos os seres vivos.
    Peta and I thank everyone who participated in this wonderful achievement.
    The human being must understand she will never have peace for everyone if we do not respect the lives of all living beings
