In the life and times of this 21st century, Americans have had more light shed upon some of the most disturbing issues of our time involving the ramifications of a political, social, and economic nature.
What’s happened to humanity; has violence, greed and lack of moral decency replaced all that we hold sacred? Has man become so corrupted that he has to prey upon innocent and defenseless animals?
Recently, there’s been a disturbing report by (ARM) Animal Recovery Mission which includes a three month investigation conducted at the historical landmark of the Fair Oaks Dairy Farms in Fair Oaks, Indiana, one of the largest dairies in the U.S. and produces dairy products for the Fairlife milk brand produced, marketed and distributed by the Coca Cola Corporation.
This has to be the largest undercover dairy investigation in history and a recent groundbreaking video proves evidence of the abuses committed by drug induced and migrant workers against these dairy calves and cows at Fair Oaks Farms and they are not only disturbing and cruel yet widespread and systemic.
According to the Founder of (ARM) Animal Recovery Mission, Richard “Kudo” Couto, states ” The only way to fix the animal abuse problem at Fair Oaks Farm is to shut it down.”
Between February and April of 2019, an (ARM) embedded Investigator who was hired as an employee by Fair Oaks Farms in Fair Oaks, Indiana to milk cows on a rotary system noted that on a daily basis, he witnessed employees kicking, punching, slapping, slamming, throwing, pushing calves, some were stabbed and beaten with steel rebars and broomsticks, they were also hit in the mouth and face with hard plastic bottles, stepped on, kneed in the spine, subjected to extreme temperatures, burned in the face with hot branding irons, neglected by improper nutrition and denied medical attention and it that’s not enough, when cows in the milking line did not cooperate, these monster employees would bend and break the cows tail bones as punishment.
Mother cows who had their baby calves ripped away from them lost their voices as they desperately and intensely cried out for them for hours and merciless pain and suffering was inflicted upon these calves, causing permanent injury or death from these bully employees who tortured and brutalized these creatures on a daily basis.
The investigator also reported that newborn calves, immediately separated from their mother and just hours after birth, were violently thrown into small sheds where they would be alone in temperatures falling below minus 35 degrees Fahrenheit.
The ARM Investigator also witnessed calves dying from extreme freezing conditions with upper management’s knowledge. During this period hundreds of newborn calves died of starvation, dehydration, and hypothermia.
There were cows with infected eyes, broken bleeding tails, infected udders and afterbirth placentas hanging out from their bodies were seen being forced on the rotary system.
The investigator did not witness any of the cows at this Fair Oaks Farms Fairlife dairy receiving medical attention, but did witness multiple downer cows and many cows falling while on the rotary system from poor health, untreated injuries, inability to walk and overall weakness.
