Letter: Factory farming is cruel to animals

Letter: With the proposed factory for cows at Leighton, near Welshpool, where cows will be incarcerated in a factory and where, if the floodgates open, you will no longer see dairy cows in fields anymore.

Letter: Factory farming is cruel to animals

Letter: With the proposed factory for cows at Leighton, near Welshpool, where cows will be incarcerated in a factory and where, if the floodgates open, you will no longer see dairy cows in fields anymore.

Of all the objections put forward, I was amazed to learn that the welfare side of it cannot be a consideration when objecting.

The subject matter, the cows, surely should be a high priority? The law is flawed and yet again big business is the God, to the exclusion of living animals. Welfare for animals takes an ever decreasing priority.

If this cow factory is given the go-ahead, it could open the floodgates, where we could see the day when you no longer have cows in fields, much like battery chickens.

In this case, it seems cows are potentially going to be treated like cabbages or any factory product. Indeed cabbages would be better treated, out in the open.

Just how much further do we squeeze and abuse farm animals?
