Did you know that while specific European Union (EU) regulations exist to safeguard other farm animals, dairy cows have no such protection? This means that welfare standards vary greatly across the EU, with some dairy cows suffering from poor health, inadequate housing and lack of access to pasture. ‘Supporting Better Dairy’, a collaboration between leading animal welfare charities Compassion in World Farming, and the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), along with ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s, has today launched a campaign to improve standards for dairy cows across Europe.
