Become a wise consumer. We encourage people to eat less meat and dairy and be sure that the meat and dairy products you consume come from farmers that adhere to rules that better respect the behavioural and emotional needs of animals. It is important that more consumers spend the extra dime or euro on “welfare-friendlier” labels of meat and dairy so that the industry can be changed from within. Animals raised under various labeling schemes (for example: Demeter Zuiver Zuivel, Milieukeur, The Duke of Berkshire, de Groene Weg) are treated and housed with much more consideration for their well-being than animals raised under standard practices.
If you are not sure a label is trustworthy, write the company and ask for proof that their systems are better; suggest that you visit their farms, or that they at least send you photos of their farms.
