This is just the latest attempt to curb the number of farm animals in the Netherlands. Last year, the Dutch government unveiled its plan to shut down over 30 percent of the country's cattle ranches supposedly to rein in emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia.
In order to achieve the government mandates, many farmers may have to kill off a large portion of their livestock. The Netherlands earmarked some 24.3 billion euros ($25.6 billion) to finance the implementation of these mandates.
These developments have led to widespread farmer protests, including one in which the police opened fire on a slow-moving tractor driven by a 16-year-old boy. (Related: Tensions escalate as Dutch farmers protest after police discharged firearms over "threatening situation.")
Also, the pro-farmer political party, the BoerBurgerBeweging (Farmer–Citizen Movement or BBB), suddenly became a major player in Dutch politics. It recently won provincial elections in every region of the Netherlands and is set to become the largest party in the Dutch Senate.
But the popular resistance and political defeat did not deter the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy headed by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte from pushing on with the green agenda. Reports indicate that it is looking at supplementing its efforts to forcibly buy out many farmers with restrictions on the number of livestock that can be grazed in a given amount of space.
The two-cows-per-field proposal has leaked as negotiations between farmers and the governing class are ongoing,
"I am incredibly disappointed that there is a leak. I don't know where it came from, but it is bad because it is not helpful to the process," said Piet Adema, the government minister for agriculture. "We are still negotiating. Everything is still in motion."
Evidently, Adema prefers that the public be kept in the dark about such things.
Many believe climate change is not the only motivation behind these attacks against Dutch farmers. Leading pro-farmer activist Eva Vlaardingerbroek thinks the government is less concerned with climate change than it is by acquiring more land to build housing for North Africans and other migrants, who have been arriving in the densely-populated country in recent years.
The government said it has no choice but to implement these new measures. If it does nothing, then permits for infrastructure and housing projects will be rejected.
After the courts blocked construction projects on grounds that they would produce emissions violating binding climate agreements, Rutte warned they would not be able to proceed until emissions are reduced elsewhere – and that means dropping the hammer on farmers.
