Undercover video shows worker kicking cows at dairy farm

Undercover video shows worker kicking cows at dairy farm”

An animal welfare organization says it went undercover at one of the largest dairy farms in Florida and believes it has uncovered awful abuse of cows at the Larson Dairy Farm in Okeechobee County.

Surveillance video acquired by an undercover ARM investigator shows employees beating the cows, Local 10 News reports.

According to the Animal Recovery Mission (ARM), undercover investigators were able to record the footage at Larson Dairy Farm in Okeechobee, which distributes milk throughout the state of Florida. "Kept hidden from tours and visitors to the dairy, the cows are brutalized".

Another man is on video slapping the cow. Numerous cows being hit appear to be confined in stalls where they can not escape.

"Very disappointing to me", said Larson.

In a statement, Jacob Larson said an employee seen in the video hitting cows has been fired, adding that the "unusual use of force is simply unacceptable on our dairy or on any other farm". "It's extremely important our cows are cool, they're comfortable and they're clean because that's what makes high-quality milk", said Larson.

Stephen said he doesn't know exactly what the charges will be just yet.

Publix has since suspended its milk deliveries from the farm and Okeechobee County Sheriff Noel Stephen said the department has opened an investigation into the farm.

"These gentlemen would not condone this activity had they known about it". They said they signed no such paperwork.

ARM said they showed the video to the prosecutor in Okeechobee, who then referred them to the sheriff's office.

The full video released by ARM can be found here. WARNING some may find the video disturbing.

ARM says their member worked at the farm for a little less than a month.

ARM says it believes charges should be brought against owner and farm location boss Jacob Larson with a third-degree felony for "failing to act upon his employees".

ARM officials said workers also were captured on camera punching and kicking the cows in the head, often bringing the 1,500-pound animal to its knees. "They looked at this and said, 'Yes, this is a criminal case'".

The sheriff said he has never heard any complaints about the farm until now.
