To: Tony McArdle, Chief Executive of Lincolnshire County Council, and all councillors in Lincolnshire
Please don't let plans for 'mega-dairies' go ahead in Lincolnshire.
These farms would make a big contribution to climate change and undermine more responsible, sustainable cattle farms in Lincolnshire and the rest of the UK.
Keeping cows inside almost all year is cruel and there is evidence that cows kept in factory farms suffer as a result.
Please do all you can to stop these mega-dairy style farms being built in Lincolnshire.
But lots of people don't want these intensive farms to come to the UK. There would be an increased risk of disease spreading, and the huge amount of waste that the cows produce can create real problems for the farm's neighbours. And smaller, traditional dairy farmers could be put out of business if these big farms become more commonplace.
But if enough of us come together to put pressure on Lincolnshire councils to stop these big factory farms, we can make sure we don't end up with lots of them in the UK.
Please sign the petition now, then ask your friends to get involved too.
