Swiss voters reject proposal to end dehorning of cows

Firstpost Monday, 26 November 2018
By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Swiss voters have rejected a proposal to subsidise farmers who let the horns on their cows and goats grow rather than removing them with a red-hot iron in a procedure which critics say causes pain. Three-quarters of Swiss cows, a national symbol and tourist attraction, are dehorned or genetically hornless. Hornless animals are easier and cheaper to keep because they cause fewer injuries and need less space.
