Farmers Want Cows to Stay Indoors

Published tisdag 9 juni 2009 kl 11.16

Some Swedish dairy farmers are criticizing the regulations demanding that cows be let out of the barns to graze outdoors every spring - insisting that hot and rainy weather reduces milk production.

They argue that since the average Swedish dairy farm these days has a large number of animals, grazing land is not always sufficient and that the cows generally are not tied up in barns but are given space to move around.

The critical farmers add that the consumer and the producers like the image of cows frolicking in green pastures - but are unwilling to pay the extra costs for ecological milk which is on sale in Sweden's southern neighbour, Denmark.
