Luxury Hotel for Cows??
There are plans in the U.K. to build an intensive dairy farm with
8,000 cows that will run 23 hours a day, milking each cow three
times every day. To most people who know a little about CAFO's
(Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) more commonly known as
factory farms, this new dairy farm seems just like one. However,
Peter Willes of Nocton Dairies says it's more like a luxury hotel
for cows since it would have comfy sand floors, a foot-trimming
center and an opening to allow real air inside. Fortunately, out of
the 161 people who attended an exhibition meant to "win round the
project's critics” 153 of the visitors weren't convinced and only 8
left the exhibition won over by the plans. Already animal advocacy
groups are fighting this proposal.

Dairy Factory Farm of Luxury Hotel for Cows?
It is true that no matter how a salve is treated it will continue
being a slave. Dairy cows are enslaved for their milk, meat and
skin; and the idea of a "humane" dairy factory farm is incoherent.
As stewards of God's animals we should show them compassion, mercy
and justice, none of which exist while we are exploiting them.
