Got Misery? Milk Does. Help End Animal Abuse in the Dairy Industry

Is your milk and cheese the product of blatant animal cruelty?

Every time Mercy For Animals’ undercover investigators go behind the closed doors of dairy factory farms they document widespread acts of criminal animal abuse that shock and horrify most Americans.

In a new investigation, workers at Andrus Farms, a dairy supplier to Great Lakes Cheese—one of the largest cheese producers in the world—were caught on video viciously beating, stabbing, and dragging sick and injured cows.

This investigation documented the following:

  -  Workers viciously kicking and punching cows in their faces and bodies, beating them with rakes, and stabbing animals with sharp objects

  -  A “downed” cow being kicked and beaten, having water forcefully sprayed in her face and nostrils, and being dragged by a rope around her neck

  -  Workers using pruning shears to cut through the sensitive skin, nerves, and tailbones of cows without any painkillers 

  -  Sick or injured cows suffering from open wounds, infections, and serious injuries left to suffer without proper veterinary care

Treated as mere milk-producing machines, cows exploited for milk and cheese endure lives of near constant misery and deprivation.

This must stop!

Please, take a moment to sign this petition calling on Great Lakes Cheese to immediately implement meaningful animal welfare policies and oversight to prevent egregious animal abuse at its supplier farms.

Thank you.
