Desperate dairy -The future of dairy farming

1 Mins read

The picture-perfect idea of happy cows roaming around in lush, green grass might have been a true portrayal of the dairy industry 50 years ago, at a time when milkmen were commonplace.

But today? Not so much.

Robotic and indoor intensive dairy farming is on the rise – and some believe it’s necessarily not what’s best for cows. Desperate Dairy explores the future of dairy farming, at a time when the number of dairy farms in the UK is plummeting and dairy farmers are looking to improve their efficiency.

In this video Artefact looks at both traditional and “new” methods of dairy farming, and examines how robotic and indoor methods affect the wellbeing and health of dairy cows.
