Following the Environment Agency of England and Wales objection, Nocton Dairies withdrew its recent proposal for a 3,770 cow mega-farm in Lincolnshire, England. The farm also faced opposition from animal and environmental groups, and local citizens. According to a survey conducted by TNS Nipo in the Netherlands, a majority of Dutch people also oppose building massive factory farms in their country, for both animal welfare and environmental problems. Efforts by groups such as the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), through its “Not in my Cuppa” campaign, have helped increase public awareness to issues surrounding factory farmed dairy cows.
