SAFE gets it wrong!

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: Animal rights activists SAFE are again taking aim at the dairy industry. This time, someone stumbled upon dead calves left on public land in Taranaki.

SAFE now claims that the images of dead calves on top of each other is “the reality of the dairy industry”. Wrong!

Federated Farmers Dairy chair Wayne Langford says his understanding is that these calves are at a drop off point for a local charity. 

They are in confined bins and are not a risk to any waterways, he says.

“It’s disappointing that they were left in a way that photos like this could be taken, however this animal activist group have been known to go to illegal measures to get photos in the past.”
