Justice for Dairy Cows Allegedly Pushed, Shoved and Whipped

Target: Ben Lake, Member of Parliament for Ceredigion, Wales

Goal: Penalize anyone responsible for animal cruelty at farm where cows are reportedly beaten and whipped.

At Tafarn Y Bugail, a dairy farm in Ceredigion, Wales, disturbing allegations have surfaced. An animal welfare charity, Viva!, has reportedly uncovered harrowing scenes of animal mistreatment. Their investigation, spanning February to June, revealed cattle subjected to alleged extreme rough handling, including cows being pushed, shoved, and even whipped. This brutality, purportedly commonplace in the dairy industry, demands immediate attention.

The investigation’s findings are chilling. Viva! claims to have documented dead animals carelessly discarded outside the farm premises, with some cows’ corpses seen half-eaten. Even more alarming are accounts of cows enduring repeated beatings, including one cow allegedly beaten 55 times in a single instance. These detailed allegations paint a grim picture of the suffering endured by these animals. Such treatment is not only morally reprehensible but also raises serious questions about the ethical standards and oversight at this farm.

Justice for these animals is essential. Not only must the alleged abusers face legal consequences, but systemic changes are also needed to prevent future occurrences. This situation highlights the need for stricter enforcement of animal welfare standards and accountability in the dairy industry. Demand that the Chief Prosecutor for Ceredigion takes immediate action against those allegedly responsible for the cruelty at Tafarn Y Bugail.


Dear MP Lake,

We are writing to urge you to take immediate action against the alleged animal cruelty at Tafarn Y Bugail Dairy Farm in Ceredigion, Wales. The recent investigation by the animal welfare charity Viva! has unveiled deeply troubling allegations. Cows at this farm were reportedly subjected to inhumane treatment, including extreme rough handling, beatings, and neglect. These allegations are not only disturbing but also suggest a grave violation of animal welfare laws.

The specific details emerging from the investigation are heartbreaking. Allegations of cows being beaten multiple times, some enduring 55 strikes in a single episode, are particularly distressing. Furthermore, reports of dead animals being left unattended and calves being separated from their mothers without essential nutrients suggest a pattern of neglect and abuse. These actions, if true, are inexcusable and warrant strict legal action.

It is imperative that these allegations are thoroughly investigated and, if found true, that those responsible are held accountable. This case presents an opportunity to send a clear message that animal cruelty will not be tolerated. Your intervention is crucial in ensuring justice for the abused animals and in reinforcing the importance of animal welfare standards. We demand immediate legal action against those allegedly involved in the cruelty at Tafarn Y Bugail.
