In Switzerland, 90 percent of dairy cattle have had their horns removed. But farmer Armin Capaul has launched an initiative to offer monetary assistance to owners who don't dehorn their livestock. The Swiss will now vote on the issue.
To dehorn or not to dehorn: That is the question being asked of Swiss voters in a referendum on bovine well-being. Dehorning advocates say not doing so could be both dangerous and detrimental to the animals.
Swiss voters have rejected a plan to put Swiss court rulings ahead of international ones. However, they approved allowing insurers to spy on customers and against a ban on the dehorning of cows.
