Ban Cruel ‘Udder Flaming’ of Dairy Cows

Target: Rick Smith, President of Dairy Farmers of America

Goal: Ban the cruel practice of “udder flaming” dairy cows.

Udder flaming is one of the many cruel practices the dairy industry partakes in. Udder flaming is when a large flame is passed under a cow in order to burn the hairs off the udders.

If the process is done correctly, the cow is not burned. However, accidents happen and the cows can get severely burned and injured. In addition, this is a terrifying situation for the cows whether or not they get injured. Hair on the udders allows for more bacterial growth, which is why udder flaming is done in the first place.

Sign this petition and demand the Dairy Farmers of America ban this practice. Cows are social animals with real emotions and should not be subjected to this terrifying practice.


Dear Mr. Smith,

Udder flaming is a common practice used among dairy farmers to burn the hair off of cows’ udders. A large flame is passed underneath the cow to burn these hairs.

When udder flaming is done correctly, the cow is not burned. However, the situation is very scary for the cows whether or not they are hurt. With that said, accidents do happen and cows have been badly injured and burned due to this practice.

Udder flaming is a cheap, quick way to get rid of the hair on cows’ udders. It is time these cows are viewed as animals that can feel fear and pain, rather than property and milk-making machines. Please consider banning this cruel practice and finding safer alternatives for the cows.
