'The Coca-Cola corporation has been forced to cut its ties with a farm supplying its milk company, after animal-rights activists released horrifying footage of animal cruelty on the farm and public outcry ensued.
In what it called “the largest undercover dairy investigation in history,” the Animal Recovery Mission sent undercover workers into Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana, one of the largest dairy farms in the country, which supplies milk for Coca-Cola’s Fairlife brand.
Extremely graphic footage released on Wednesday shows workers punching, kicking and throwing calves, as well as beating the animals with steel rods and plastic milking bottles “on virtually a daily basis.” Newborn calves are crudely branded, and given inadequate food and nutrition. Dead and dying animals are left to bake in the sun, and male calves are sold to veal farms, despite the farm’s claims to the contrary.

Workers also grew and smoked marijuana at the farm, and offered the undercover team cocaine on the job.
“The calf abuse is by far the worst baby abuse we’ve seen...anywhere in the world,” ARM founder Richard ‘Kudo’ Couto said. “Nothing is worse than Fair Oaks Farms.”
Some 30,000 cows live (and die) at Fair Oaks, a facility the size of 56,000 football fields. Most live inside 10 airplane-hangar-sized barns, and are milked three times a day, every day of the year. Fair Oaks supplies milk to Fairlife, which is owned, marketed, and distributed by the Coca-Cola company.
A social media storm erupted, with commenters calling for a boycott of Fairlife and Coca-Cola products.'
