    Compassion in World Farming



    Compassion in World Farming was started in 1967 by dairy farmer Peter Roberts. Peter and his wife Anna were becoming increasingly concerned with the animal welfare issues connected to the new systems of intensive farming that were becoming popular during the 1960's.

    Detailed Information:
    Unfortunately, at the time, Peter couldn't convince any of the major animal welfare societies to campaign against factory farming, but he was persuaded by a friend to do it himself and Compassion in World Farming was born. Originally run from the Roberts family house, Compassion in World Farming has grown into an organisation with branches in Ireland, France and Holland and contacts throughout Europe and around the world. Compassion in World Farming campaign through peaceful protest and lobbying and by raising awareness of the issue of farm animal welfare. We also produce fully referenced scientific reports. Our undercover team provide vital evidence of the suffering of farm animals. We have a wonderful network of supporters who help us in so many ways and celebrities who lend their time and support to our campaigns.
