From Birth to Plate
The Milking Parlour was an art installation in Bristol April 21-25 which focussed on the plight of farmers in the dairy industry. It is part of the Food Connections Festival in Bristol.
Viva distributed vegetarian and vegan leaflets at the venue showing the dark side of dairy farming.
As consumers, we need to be much more educated and informed of the process from birth to plate including how animals are treated; the reality of factory farming and conditions in slaughterhouses; how milk is produced through continuous impregnation of female cows and the removal of calves from their mothers soon after birth.
