Ag Minister Damien O’Connor has warned farmers that if they don’t take account of climate change in their production systems they could be jeopardising access to major markets.
Vegan charity Viva! is urging consumers to ditch dairy as part of a new initiative called ‘MooFree May’ now in its second year. Campaigners hand out vegan cheese and chocolate to consumers.
The campaigners have a giant inflatable cow emblazoned with the words Vegan is a State of Kind. They show undercover video footage taken on dairy farms and distribute dairy-free booklets and guides.
