The group Mercy for Animals produced an undercover video recently that shows workers at Wiese Brothers Farms, a dairy farm in Greenleaf, WI, abusing the cows. Wiese supplies milk to Foremost Farms, which in turn supplies cheese to Nestle, which makes the frozen pizza brands.
NBC News aired the video, which also shows workers "beating, kicking, stabbing and dragging cows around with a rope. Some of the cows appear unable to walk and others appear to have bleeding wounds. One worker is shown poking the cows with a stick and jabbing a sharp instrument into the cow's back," according to Food World News.In response to the video, Nestle has cut ties with Foremost Farms. Nestle is based in Northbrook, IL.
