As the bill on gene-edited food goes through parliament, Corporate Watch takes a look at the dystopian technologies in the UK dairy industry and on the horizon.
In a new report, we explore the changing context – from the decline in milk consumption and the impact of Brexit, to the rise of the megadairies.
And we examine the technofixes being sold in the perpetual quest for productivity and profit, with mini-profiles on leading companies in each area. These include robotised milking systems, gene editing, ‘robot ready’ cows, low-emission cows, shock collars, and more.
Plus info on alternatives to the Dystopian Farm, and paths for resistance.
