Dairy Producers of New Mexico

Mercy for Animals

The world's largest mozzarella cheese producer has updated their animal welfare policy. This week's announcement comes in the wake of a hidden video investigation of animal abuse at a dairy farm in southern New Mexico last year. 

The secretly-taped video revealed that workers at Winchester Dairy near Dexter, New Mexico, used prods on cows' genitals and tractors to move sick animals.

Mercy for Animals

  A national animal protection organization released secretly-taped videos today and accused workers at a southern New Mexico dairy farm of animal abuse.

The graphic videos show workers viciously beating dairy cows with metal chains and wires, using electric prods on cows’ udders and dragging weak or sick cows with tractors as they bellowed in distress.
