Below is a link to a YouTube video from, Mercy for Animals, documenting conditions at NY States largest dairy CAFO . You may have seen parts of it on Nightline January 26th. Although the tail docking and dehorning procedures are legal in NYS, this video also shows the filthy crowded conditions the animals endure.
Leprino foods which manufactures cheese for distribution to companies like Pizza Hut has refused to take any more milk from this dairy. I have written to thank them for their stand and I have also written to Dairylea asking them to refuse to pick up their milk. Perhaps if those of us who are appalled both show our dismay to Dairylea, and our appreciation for the public stand Leprino has taken, we can make an impact on animal health and safety.
