Livestock markets

Cows at market

Animal Aid continues to encourage people to adopt an animal-free diet. But for so long as animals are raised and slaughtered for meat and dairy products, we believe that they should be spared the wholly unnecessary additional hardship of a day at market.

Millions of farmed animals every year spend a punishing day at market before being sent to slaughter or on to another farm for further ‘fattening’. It is an additional and totally unnecessary layer of suffering for these already exploited and abused animals.

Animal Aid established a network of voluntary market monitors (MarketWatchers) who record the ill treatment of animals by market workers and users.
