Please don't let plans for 'mega-dairies' go ahead in Lincolnshire.
These farms would make a big contribution to climate change and undermine more responsible, sustainable cattle farms in Lincolnshire and the rest of the UK.
Keeping cows inside almost all year is cruel and there is evidence that cows kept in factory farms suffer as a result.
Please do all you can to stop these mega-dairy style farms being built in Lincolnshire.
The local council will soon be voting on the cow factory farm plans. The deadline for the petition is the 11th January - on that day we need to present the council with a sky-high pile of signatures!
It would be a disaster to let these US-style factory farms come to the UK. These plans are bad for cows, bad for climate change, and bad for local farmers. There would be an increased risk of disease spreading, and the huge amount of waste that the cows produce can create real problems for the farm's neighbours. And smaller, traditional dairy farmers could be put out of business.
If enough of us come together and sign the petition, we can push the local councils to kick out these plans. That would stop this particular plan in its tracks, and would help stop these kind of cow factory farms spreading across the UK.
Please sign the petition now, then ask your friends to get involved too.
