Hi,<br><br>
I've recently returned to vegetarianism... can anyone recommend any 'cruelty free' dairy products... basically milk, cheese and eggs?<br><br>
If I buy free range organic is that likely to be cruelty free?<br><br>
Thanks<br>

Nope, any commercially produced dairy will involve separating the calf from the mother, culling the cows at around 5 years of age, killing bull calves for veal and usually many welfare violations besides.<br><br>
Organic welfare standards are meant to be higher than non-organic but in practice this is rarely the case. Organic milk is better for the health of the person who consumes it but no better for the cow it is taken from.

See if you can find a small farm where you can check how the animals are treated. I don't know where in the UK you live, but most cities have city farms. When I was still a vegetarian (I'm a vegan now), I bought my dairy and eggs from one of them.
