Slaughter free milk is now available. Ahimsa Milk, a UK based company, claims to be the first and only company that sells slaughter-free milk. Slaughter-free milk is produced without killing any cows, calves or bulls. No milk comes from dead cows but cows are slaughtered after they go past their optimal milk production stage. Slaughter free milk is sourced from cows that are never slaughtered. After the cows no longer produce milk they are sent to a ‘cow retirement village’ where they live out the rest of their lives.
The base price of Ahimsa milk is £2.25 per litre out of which 65p is allocated to the pension fund, hospice cost and vet costs. That’s about one third of the base price allocated for pension and related costs.
Perhaps the idea is interesting but it may be difficult to sustain. To estimate ‘pension costs’ requires complex actuarial calculations and I wonder whether sufficient statistics exists to do the calculations with a certain degree of reliably.
I wonder about the slaughter title. Most but not all cows are slaughtered, some may die earlier due to accidents, diseases or just natural early death. So we don’t really know whether the particular batch of milk we have comes from a cow that will be slaughtered in future, though most likely it will be.
And I think the title ‘slaughter free milk’ is not very appealing.
