Protest Planned for World Dairy Expo

Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) and Alliance for Animals are joining together to demonstrate during the World Dairy Expo for their new campaign “Humane Milk is a Myth.” FARM is continuing a similar campaign from the UK.

There will be two demonstrations during the expo and there will also be a “rolling billboard” on a truck that will circle the conference for a couple of days.  They are planned for October 6, 2017 @ 12:00- 2:00pm and October 7, 2017 @ 4:00- 6:00pm

Here is some advice on how to handle it:
* Inform every participant of your club or organization about the proper care and handling of animals prior to the show.
* Within your organization or farm, designate a spokesperson to be the key communicator about animal welfare and care while at the fair or exposition.
* Ignore activists or protestors. Document any confrontation or actions and report to event organizers.
* Do not face a confrontation alone, seek out the designated spokesperson, barn official or law enforcement officer for help.
* Communicate in a friendly, positive manner and do not get angry or upset. Treat people with respect even if they have different opinions and views from you.
