Dairy cows - how can you help?

There are a number of ways that you can help improve the lives of dairy cows.

Choose higher welfare

If you eat dairy products and are concerned about dairy cow welfare, then look for products carrying the RSPCA Assured logo.

RSPCA Assured is a farm assurance and food labelling scheme that's dedicated to improving farm animal welfare. RSPCA Assured uses the RSPCA's strict animal welfare standards, which cover all stages of an animal's life ¿ from birth (or hatching) through to killing.

The RSPCA Assured website provides information on where to buy RSPCA Assured labelled products.

If more consumers insist on higher welfare products, more supermarkets will want to stock them. This will encourage more farmers to improve their farming practices and ultimately more farm animals will benefit.

Watch our animation to find out how you can help improve the welfare of farm animals by choosing products labelled RSPCA Assured.
