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.

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.
