Telford — Animal Justice Project will be protesting outside of one of the dairy industry's biggest events tomorrow, Wednesday 14 September, at the annual UK Dairy Day event.

Located at the International Centre, Speir House, Telford TF3 3BD [2], UK Dairy Day draws in thousands of farmers and agricultural companies from across the UK each year. Using a large banner and bespoke cow head-shaped placards, activists will be stood outside the venue from 8am tomorrow.   

Activists are protesting the event citing concerns that dairy production has a considerable effect on climate change due to emissions of greenhouse gases, and highlighting several high-profile undercover investigations by Animal Justice Project revealing the abuse and suffering of cows and calves. Investigators from the organisation, under its ‘Expired’ campaign, have filmed animal abuse on a beef ‘mega farm’ in Northampton [3], the separation of cows and calves at an organic, multi award-winning farm in Bath [4] and staff punching, kicking and throwing calves down trailer ramps at a calf rearing and killing operation in Shropshire [5]. 

The event, which is free to attend, will host cattle shows, seminars, industry panels and practical demonstrations [2].  

Ayrton Cooper, Campaigns Manager for Animal Justice Project says: "If the recent Covid-19 pandemic has taught us one thing, it's that animal products, including dairy, belong in our past. With animal farming causing widespread animal suffering, furthering antibiotic resistance, and accelerating climate change, we are advocating for a plant-based future. Cows, calves and bulls are wickedly exploited on farms, treated as commodities, all for products that are unnecessary and even linked to human cancers”.
