Canadian Dairy Farmers Dump Thousands of
Litres of Milk Amid Covid-19 Pandemic
Global News - Canadian Dairy Farmers Dumping Milk
Dairy farmers in provinces across Canada are being told by dairy councils to dispose of milk as demand decreases amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. This is because they don't want to over-supply the market which would cause the price of milk to go down.
Sign this letter below to let your elected officials know that you are opposed to the bailouts and subsidizing of the dairy industry and the dumping of milk.
The dairy industry is the source of much animal suffering. To maximize profits, calves are separated from their mothers at birth. Mothers and babies can be heard crying for days. Male calves are sold as veal while the females become part of the cycle of impregnation and milk production. Your signature can help end this suffering and waste.
