Manure – The Biggest Challenge For Dutch Livestock Farmers — Robbie Moore | Blog


The oversupply of manure is a huge problem for the Dutch livestock sector. The Dutch farming industry is currently fighting to save its nitrate derogation after it exceeded the set phosphate threshold in 2015, so what are they planning on doing about ?

Lobbying in Brussels, the hidden costs of factory farming


Love Cheese and Wine

Apart from being (massively) into the actual pleasure of eating and sharing food, one of my other interests lies in the area of ethical and sustainable food. This is a huge topic in itself and is not one that can be covered in a brief article on a blog. However I intend to write more about this area and to kick things off, I thought I’d share some of the important issues and “hot topics” that matter to me. To begin, I am proud to say that I worked for Pig Business, a campaign and film that continues to support people across the world that are campaigning against factory pig farming.

One of the highlights of just some the work led by the formidable Tracy Worcester – a tireless campaigner and my boss for almost two years – was being…

Shocking hygiene failings have been discovered in some of the US’s biggest meat plants, as a new analysis reveals that as many as 15% (one in seven) of the US population suffers from foodborne illnesses annually.
A joint investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ) and the Guardian found that hygiene incidents are at numbers that experts described as “deeply worrying”.
US campaigners are calling once again for the closure of a legal loophole that allows meat with salmonella to be sold in the human supply chain, and also warn about the industry’s push to speed up production in the country’s meat plants. And UK campaigners warn that the UK could be flooded with “dirty meat” if a US trade deal is signed post-Brexit.

The scale of food safety and hygiene problems in meat plants around much of the UK is revealed by new analysis showing more than half of all audited plants have had at least one “major” breach in the last three years.
We’re entitled to eat safe meat. Why has that become such a lottery?

Inspection figures from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) reveal there were on average 16 major plant safety infractions every week between 2014-2017, according to a data analysis conducted this week by the Guardian and Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
Almost two thirds of audited meat cutting factories (540 out of 890) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland had at least one instance of major non-compliance with hygiene or food safety regulations. Several plants had multiple failures, with 25 breaches occurring at plants belonging to Russell Hume, the meat supplier at the centre of recent concerns about UK food hygiene. Scotland has a separate regulator. … https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/feb/23/fear-of-uk-meat-scandal-as-data-shows-hygiene-breaches-at-most-plants?CMP=share_btn_tw

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Schwein gehabt? – Gewalt auf unseren Tellern (Kindle Edition)
Das Buch ist sehr Informativ.Es zeigt wie Gesundheitsschädigend die Massentierhaltung auf den Menschen ist.
Es zeigt die Skandale der Tierhaltung .
Durch das Buch bekommt man entlich mal einen Einblick wie unser Fleisch vergiftet wird.
Auch ökologische Auswirkungen werden aufgezeigt .Wenn man es gelesen hat vergeht einem das Schnitzel.
Welche Qualen die Tiere in ihrem kurzen Leben erleiden müssen ist der reinste Horror.
Ich kann es nur weiter empfehlen.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Schwein gehabt? – Gewalt auf unseren Tellern (Kindle Edition)
Mit bewunderungswürdigem Engagement widmet sich die Autorin dem Schicksal der Schweine in unserer Kultur und in unserem Alltagsleben. Sie schildert die Zustände in den Fleischfabriken und beleuchtet die reichhaltige Literatur zum Verhalten – und ebenso der Intelligenz – dieser so neugierigen und verspielten Säugetiere und kommt zu erschütternden Ergebnissen. Wer dieses Buch mit Herz und Verstand liest, ist aufgefordert sein eigenes Verhalten zu überdenken. Es liegt auf der Hand, daß billiges Schweinefleisch wie es gerade in Deutschland en masse „produziert“ wird, mit unsäglichem Tierelend einhergeht und die Mehrheit der VerbraucherInnen dies akzeptiert, weil sie nicht von ihren Essensgewohnheiten ablassen mag, wozu Schweineschnitzel und Wurstwaren gehören. Grabowski zeigt, welche Folgen dies hat, für unsere Gesundheit, unsere Umwelt, unser Wohlbefinden – und das Leben der Tiere, das kaum mehr als „Leben“ und definitiv nicht als artgerechtes Leben bezeichnet werden kann. Auf fast 1000 Seiten zeigt uns die Autorin alle Aspekte des Schweinelebens, und der Bedeutung, die dieser systematische Mißbrauch für uns alle hat.
Wer nun ein trockenes Sachbuch erwartet wird eines Besseren belehrt. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen, Textcollagen und eigenen Meinungen macht die Autorin dieses Buch trotz seiner erschütternden Thematik zu einer erträglichen und abwechslungsreichen Lektüre, wobei die Ernsthaftigkeit ihres Ansatzes, der durch Hinweise auf die moderne Tierethik und Tierphilosophie unterstützt wird, immer präsent ist. Problematisch ist Grabowskis Versuch die Schoah und die Massentierhaltung miteinander zu verknüpfen und in diesen ohnehin sehr anspruchsvollen Text einzufügen. Dies könnte manchen LeserIn zu Mißverständnissen verleiten, eine Gefahr die der Ankündigungstext nahelegt; die Verknüpfung von Schwein und Schoah ist nicht ausreichend dargestellt. Muslimische und jüdische LeserInnen wird diese Verknüpfung irritieren: das Schwein ruft in vielen Kulturen und Religionen negative Assoziationen hervor und wird als „unrein“ betrachtet; ein Vergleich von Mensch und Schwein gilt als massive Beleidigung. Annamaria Grabowski, die auch Psychologin und Psychotherapeutin ist und zur Veröffentlichung einen eigenen Verlag gegründet hat, stellt die industrielle Tierproduktion und Tiervernichtung und die deutschen Vergangenheit in ein Kontinuum.
Kurzum: Ein mutiges und engagiertes Buch mit politischem und gesellschaftsveränderndem Anspruch, reichhaltigem Fotomaterial, ausführlichen Texten, dem unbedingt eine große Verbreitung zu wünschen ist.

Brexit: Scotland-UK trade war looms over livestock exports Play Videoscreen Paris Gourtsoyannis


The Scottish Government fired the first salvo in a possible post-­Brexit trade war, threatening to pull out of co-operation with the UK on ­agriculture in a dispute over livestock exports. Environment Secretary Michael Gove is believed to be preparing to announce a ban on all live exports of animals for slaughter after the UK leaves the European Union, in a move that would hit Scottish hill farmers. The Scottish Government has threatned to pull out of UK co-operation on agriculture. Picture: Ian Rutherford Holyrood Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing said a ban would do “substantial harm” to Scottish farmers and warned the Scottish Government would not take part in any UK-wide framework on agriculture that prevented live animal exports.

Agriculture is one of the areas under debate, with UK ministers seeking to avoid different animal welfare standards creating a trade barrier at the Scottish border, putting deals with the EU and other countries at risk.Up to 40,000 sheep are exported from the UK each year, with 6,000 destined for abattoirs in France and Germany. Government sources were quoted at the weekend as saying that a live export ban is “something we want to get moving on”, with plans expected in the autumn. A spokesman for Mr Gove’s department said it was “considering all options”.
