Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

AL­THOUGH most of us wouldn’t be with­out free-range eggs, we rarely think about the mul­ti­tudes of dairy cows that might have just as cramped a life as bat­tery hens. Cur­rently, 300,000 be­lea­guered Bri­tish dairy cows spend their lives in­doors, but two new brands hope to change the land­scape.

En­joy Milk, which rep­re­sents 700 dairy farm­ers (and wel­comes fur­ther pro­duc­ers), hopes to have bot­tles on shelves by April with fairer prices at up to 25% higher than those cur­rently paid. The ini­tia­tive was started by Nick His­cox of the Free Range Milk Mar­ket­ing Board (FRMMB), which was founded by his fa­ther last year.
