Investigating cattle indoors all year round, how they do it and the benefits and those attempting to make free range milk (not actually set as to what that is yet) and what this would mean for all.

    The entire dairy industry is quite rightly on the way down,even outdoor cows will be emotionally and physically abused and will end up as burgers. We don't need cow milk, it's not natural for humans,we can't digest it properly and it's cruel. So just have one of the many other types of milk available, feel better and let this horrible industry disappear even quicker than it inevitably will.

    Dairy farmers aren't paid enough so some are forced to adopt methods of
    production which are worse for cattle and consumers. I'd happily pay
    twice as much for milk. The agriculture system as a whole needs complete
    reform – it's very wasteful, inefficient and damaging to the
    environment and human health (even much crop production like wheat, palm
    oil, etc.). Hemp's about the best thing we could grow (hundreds of uses
    and cancer cure) but it's massively supressed.

    Respect the animal that's provides your living or you will suffer for it.

    The USA certainly has our share but I believe the Brits have far more busy-bodies than their farmers can stand. They should raise hogs and pour all the milk into them. Milk prices would go up then. hahahahahaha

    Cows need to be on grass.it is wrong to keep them inside.Cows need to graze.

    Look at the many videos on You Tube of cows in the UK and USA being let free in to the pasture for the first time in spring, after living in the barn all winter. Watch the cows frisky about, run in circles, and play with each other. Then tell me they don't care! LOL

    Imagine being kept inside your whole life, you, as a human, and not being allowed to walk on fresh grass and stare in to the sunny sky. Hah!

    I can tell that this farm owner with 1,700 cows gives them good care, and does an excellent job, so I will not criticize him at all. He's just running a business.

    But seeing him state that the cows don't care about being outdoors at all reminds me of the comments of many who propagated the Nazi camps in Germany. They are animals, just Jews, and don't matter.

    Like I said, JUST WATCH THE VIDEOS OF THE COWS BEING ALLOWED IN TO THE PASTURE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SPRING, LOOK AT THEIR JOY AT BEING ON GRASS AND OUTDOORS, WATCH THE PEOPLE LINED UP TO WATCH THEM FRISK AROUND, and it's obvious that the cows enjoy the outdoors like you and I.

    the supermarkets control the profit a farmer can make. This farm makes no more than a standard farm. Look at their accounts. Any profit making advantage a farm comes up with, the supermarkets force that profit to migrate, in to their purse.

    I have pretty much stopped drinking and buying dairy milk. It is not good.for my osteo arthritis. The entire milk consumption should be questioned and just like with meat consumption iit should become a luxury, not a daily staple. I consider it unlawful to deny a cow her pasture, especially when her calves are being ripped off her right after birth!

    Cattle feet prove that they are not designed to be reared on concrete floors; rather on grass and soil. Concrete floors mean increases in foot problems higher disease transfer and of course an earlier death.
    Farming needs to revert back to what the land and its animals are capable of producing without farmers abusing the land and its animals.

    the farmer with 1700 cows thats whats putting other farms who want to keep there cows properly out of business

  • gašper Bartelj 2 weeks ago

    the cow s look s healty . believe me if the cow do not have so good care they don't give so much milk.and why have housing cow more milk then grazing cow because they are hapier. this animal are breading to have a lot milk and for this they need special care and nutrition.
    Leo if you don't now life is a beach and we still live in a competitive world. and this cow have a bad or good luck depens how you look. if we don't have a farm this cow don't exist .

    all they all going to die and you and me to. but they have a purpose for us to give milk and meat for exchange for food care and protect from an other predators.

    What a stupid investigation. You didn't even look at the price of grass versus the price of feed concentrates. Sure you produce more milk on concentrates but you pay a heck a lot more more for it.
