Investigation Shows Abuse at DiGiornio Dairy Farm

A Wisconsin farm has lost major business after an investigation showed workers ruthlessly beating, stabbing, and whipping cows.

An undercover probe of DiGornio Pizza milk supplier Wiese Brothers Farms has revealed abhorrent animal cruelty. The footage, taken by a Mercy for Animals investigator in October and November, shows employees kicking, whipping, and stabbing cows, dragging them with large vehicles, and letting their infected wounds (sometimes caused by the abuse) go untreated. Digiornio Pizza manufacturer Nestlé has terminated business with Wiese Brothers Farm. “Nestlé is outraged and deeply saddened by the mistreatment of animals shown in this video,” says company spokesperson Deborah Cross. “We do expect all of our suppliers and their suppliers to meet our stringent guidelines.” According to NBC, the local sheriff’s department is currently conducting an investigation of the abuse.
