Intensive cattle farming indoors & free range milk (UK) - BBC - 3rd April 2016

Holstein cows suit indoor systems possibly jerseys but most british breeds wouldn't suit such an intensive system. Ive bred dairy shorthorns for over 50 yrs and always had a low input external lifestyle for my cows. Most of the year the building were avail for them to come in if they wanted but very rarely except if it was torrential rain did they come in. Even then some preferred to stay outside. Ive bred cows that have lived to over 20 yrs old and most of mine averaged over 7 lactations. Personally I preferred low stocking rates with as natural conditions as possible and my cows were happy stress free with very few ailments.
Mabey they should show them ripping the baby’s away and keeping them constantly pregnant
If this moronic idea of no deal Brexit (cause we'll show those damn europeans who's the boss here) gets through, Britain will need to look for the food elsewhere. Say goodbye to free range, say hello to the American milk and meat.
I dont like seeing them being attached to those machines its not natural makes me feel uneasy, being kept inside all the time is so wrong they dont have a choice poor things its like their in a prison
GGRRRRRRR! this doc is so annoying. ALL FARMED ANIMALS ARE ABUSED. The commentators are so flippant. It's like they are talking about non feeling objects, not sentient beings. The idiot intensive farmer. HE thinks his cows are happy!! They never go outside. They take their babies away from ALL OF THEM!!!!! Vile GREEDY man GOVEGAN
I live in London
I am looking for work in this area and do not know what to do
Prison cow version. Life sentences for all. Glad I didn’t drink milk, as allergies IBS and lactose intolerant.
Keep your milk if that's how it's produced,should be ashamed.
This is disgusting, I can't watch it all it's horrible. We are keeping sentient beings as slaves so we can drink milk that is not designed for us. Choose plant base milks.
Human needs: fresh non-toxic air (indoor air is usually toxic), exercise (involving all practical potential use of muscular and skeletal features, unadulterated natural nutrition, unpolluted water, minimum of toxic pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics, minimally restricted socializing environments. Animal needs are different?
Nice wide passageways.... who is he trying to kid? Vile man not allowing them out 😡
Farm is very good l am dr mandeep veterinary
DISCLAIMER: the industries dont want us to know that in order for a cow to produce milk they need to be pregnant, and if the baby cow turns out to be a male they will instantly be slaughtered for 'beef' because they have no use for milk production. Furthermore the farms separate the cow babies and the mothers just so we can have the milk otherwise the babies would drink the milk from their mother.
Actually, if they can get some natural sunshine on their bodies, milk cows will feel better and just be better cows, they can be kept outside during the summer, and have the milk barn attached to the adjacent pasture, they need to lay down and sleep and eat real grass, I want these gentle creatures to be contented and no cranky, like a pent up animal often becomes.
Who wants to pay more for milk?? Can one make a good living farming with 50 dairy cows?
Doesnt matter if free range or in barn, still causes the majority of Earth's pollution. And, don't forget to let people know that the milk they are drinking is full of growth hormones meant for the calves you take away from their mums as soon as they are born. Happy cows? Do you really think they want to be impregnated every year, have their calf taken away as soon as it is born, just to provide milk, cheese and other dairy products?
its like prison would you like to be in side all day ?
The entire dairy industry is quite rightly on the way down,even outdoor cows will be emotionally and physically abused and will end up as burgers. We don't need cow milk, it's not natural for humans,we can't digest it properly and it's cruel. So just have one of the many other types of milk available, feel better and let this horrible industry disappear even quicker than it inevitably will.
Humans are waking up - thank goodness.. One day soon this horror will be history ..

Agricultural economics refers to economics as it relates to the "production, distribution and consumption of [agricultural] goods and services".

The word agriculture is a late Middle English adaptation of Latin agricultūra, from ager, "field", and cultūra, "cultivation" or "growing".
