A recent conference in Glasgow seems to think this could be a reality. Several spokespeople from the industry showed concern that there was too many alternatives (plant based), in fact their concern put a time limit on their own industry (10 years), unless something changes for them. The chief executive of trade (Dairy UK), Judith Byron said they are launching a new campaign to promote there industry and attempt to fight the growing negativity image the industry has.
A sustainability consultant (Judith Capper) said, “While vegans comprise a small portion of the population in the UK, their collective ethical message or very loud voices is making an impact“.
“There is a need in the dairy sector for some myth busting,” Capper said. “If consumers don’t buy our products—milk, cream, butter, cheese, etc.—we will not have a dairy industry in five to 10 years.” Professor Patrick Wall of Dublin University pointed the panelists to other competitors set to challenge the appeal of animal dairy milk. “We also have a United States firm going into production next year with a cow-free milk product called Perfect Day,”
Patrick Walls also said. “It is animal-free milk. They have cut out the middleman, as in the cow.” .
Lets hope we the dairy industry listens to changes to a more ethical plant based alternative. We can only live in hope..

The new vegan advert says that eating meat thousands of years ago may have been a necessity, but there is no excuse in 2018.
Butchering and eating other living beings is so uncivilised and so yesterday – or rather, so Stone Age. That’s the message in PETA Germany’s humorous new video ad, which challenges people to bring their diets into the 21st century.
The Stone Age is over, and we live in a new age. Numerous maladies are linked to meat consumption – such as heart disease, strokes, and diabetes – and a growing body of evidence indicates that plant foods are the healthiest choices for humans. After all, our closest living relatives, great apes, eat mostly vegan foods. What’s more, hominids – including gorillas, chimpanzees, orang-utans, and humans – have short, blunt canine teeth and flat molars, which are more suited to grinding plants than tearing flesh. Humans’ long intestinal tract is more similar to that of a herbivore, like an elephant or a lemur, than to the short digestive tracts of true carnivores, such as lions and tigers, or even omnivores, such as bears and raccoons.
Another thought provoking documentary is set to be released during 2018. Dominion is the feature-length documentary sequel to 2014’s movie Lucent. While Lucent focused mostly on the Australian pig farming industry, Dominion will have a much broader scope as a comprehensive account of the numerous ways animals are used and abused in Australia. By exploring six primary facets of our interaction with animals – Pets, Wildlife, Scientific Research, Entertainment, Clothing and Food – the film will question the morality and validity of our dominion over the animal kingdom. Drawing heavily from the Aussie Farms Repository so as to contain the most recent, highest-quality footage from across the country, Dominion will also make use of emerging technologies, such as aerial drones, to capture new perspectives and examine the wider context of animal exploitation upon our landscape and within our society. Dominion was announced in October 2015 with a crowdfunding campaign which raised over $19000, and in December 2015 received a grant from animal protection institute Voiceless.
