"That shows how out of touch they are and what they think of dairy farmers."

Crikey  :o

No it means that the advertisement graphic department incorrectly used the wrong stock picture for the advert.

Not everything has a sinister meaning.

There's a simple reason for this: Tesco have screwed over the dairy industry to such an extent there just ain't any dairy cows left to photograph.  ;)

I have a friend who works in a fresh produce industry where about 90% of the sales are through the big four and their prices are down to what they were receiving 30 years ago. Needless to say that guy is still using a 20D

You never know this could just have been a clever marketing ploy by Tesco.

I can just imagine the VP of Marketing saying something like, "Stick the wrong cow in our posters and let's see how much media coverage our new milk promotion gets! Best of all it is all free!"

Hi expatinasia.
I think this explanation is as likely if not more so than any other, no advertising better than free advertising!

Cheers Graham.

Next thing you know, they're going to be using actors instead of real people in commercials...
