Cattle farming - it's bad for us

Greg from Woburn

One cow produces more methane than 7 sheep
One cow produces more methane than 60 pigs
One cow produces more methane than 800 humans
Methane is 84 times more potent (for climate change) than CO2.
One cow has an annual effect equivalent to an average car travelling 15,500 km.

On top of this, dairy uses coal to produce milk powder.
And they import cattle feed and fertilizer.
And contribute to nitrate water levels higher than world health standards.
But the government asks farmers to pay only 5% of their ETS. Taxpayers pay the rest.
Subsidies to farmers are greater than the taxes they pay. Taxpayers pay the difference.

Attached is a photo of my sweet dog Maddie, an 8 year old Norwich Terrier. Maddie came into my life about 15 months ago to heal my heart after I lost my JRT called Pippa four months previously. She settled in immediately and is my joy in life. Loves her walks, her treats and cuddles on my lap. She’s just perfect in every way.

I am a great dog who loves to have cuddles, I love to have humans around me. Due to my young age I would be better for me to go to a home that has no young children. I can be a little shy with new people and then I am a bouncy bean. I would be fine for me to go to a home with teenagers.
So far I had a little bit of training, I am a bit uncoordinated and jumpy. With training, we both need to start from scratch. I am very willing to learn. You will see me blossom from an uncoordinated boy to a very well trained dog that will stick by your side. I need to be introduced to the world slowly as it can be a little overwhelmingly for me. I am great with other dogs at the centre and love to play. A home with a slightly older dog would mix well with me, so they can show me the ropes on how to be the best dog. If you are a ready for a new man in your life, please click on my profile and my heart could be yours forever."
