WSPA is celebrating the arrival of the sunny weather as dairy cows across Europe are let outside to graze.
Many dairy cows have been in sheds over the winter months but with the arrival of good weather, farmers let them out into the fields. Their delight at being outdoors is clear when you see them bound and leap with joy.
WSPA’s Not in my Cuppa campaign has been championing the benefits of high welfare pasture-based dairy farming for cows, farmers, the environment and consumers. When cows are allowed the freedom to roam and graze, they can socialise naturally, enjoy the open space, and eat the grass that they are supposed to.
That is why we have developed the Cow Dance – and we are inviting you to be part of it.
This week WSPA launched the Cow Dance at Worthy Farm, home to Glastonbury Festival.
Through this celebration, we want to make it clear to everyone involved in the dairy industry – including farmers, retailers and consumers - that the cows’ reaction alone is enough to prove that pasture-based farming is the future.
Whether you’re a farmer or simply a cow lover , it is time to get involved.
