Irish dairy abattoir closed due to “despicable” practices

An Irish Labour Party politician has spotlighted the cruelty of Ireland’s dairy industry. In a parliament speech on September 20th, Ann Phelan referred to dairy cows being sent to slaughter when their milk yield dropped and also to an abattoir that was closed down due to “despicable” practices…

“I am not sure if the Minister is aware of the very large abattoir closed down recently. Dairy cattle that did not produce enough milk were sent to the abattoir, supposedly to be humanely killed. However, the practices in the abattoir were despicable and the authorities saw fit to close it down completely.” Ann Phelan, TD [Labour Party, Carlow-Kilkenny, Ireland] Quote from Irish Government website
