CO-OP FARMS OPPOSE TORY-LIB DEM BADGER CULL
As a member of the Co-operative Party, I am delighted with the Co-op’s stance on the Tory-Lib Dem Government’s badger cull.
Co-operative Farms is one of the country’s largest farmers that owns and manages around 50,000 acres using exemplary biodiversity programmes such as habitat heroes http://www.co-operative.coop/farms/habitatheroes/
In a statement it says: “There is no expectation that badger culls will take place on land managed by the Co-operative and nor would they be supported.
“We can also confirm that none of the Co-operative Dairy Group farmers who provide us with a dedicated supply of own-brand milk are located in the proposed cull zones.”
