Warning: Very Disturbing Footage Populations

A new undercover video shot by Mercy For Animals (MFA at Conklin Dairy Farms in Plain City, Ohio, shows disturbing and sadistic cruelty. The footage shows the following cruelty acts:

- Violently punching young calves in the face, body slamming them to the ground, and pulling and throwing them by their ears

- Routinely using pitchforks to stab cows in the face, legs and stomach

- Kicking "downed" cows (those too injured to stand) in the face and neck - abuse carried out and encouraged by the farm's owner

- Maliciously beating restrained cows in the face with crowbars - some attacks involving over 40 blows to the head

- Twisting cows' tails until the bones snapped

- Punching cows' udders

- Bragging about stabbing, dragging, shooting, breaking bones, and beating cows and calves to death

Not surprisingly, the owner of this dairy farm said, "The video shows animal care that is clearly inconsistent with the high standards we set for our farm and its workers, and we find the specific mistreatment shown on the video to be reprehensible and unacceptable,"... "We will not condone animal abuse on our farm."

Such acts or cruelty are so disturbing that most of us don’t even want to think about them; however, innocent creatures were suffering these atrocities on a daily basis. The most effective way to reduce and prevent these acts is to transition to a plant-based diet. Cow’s milk is for calves and there is no evidence that our bodies benefit from it whatsoever. Unless we take a stand and oppose victimization, we are being accomplices of such atrocities, which go against Jesus’ teachings of compassion, peace and love.
