Animal Recovery Mission Exposes Horrific Abuse At Fair Oaks Farm Yet Again After Exposing Them In 2019

Last week, Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) publicly released some of the most disturbing footage captured of rampant dairy cow abuse stemming from its undercover investigation at Fair Oaks Farms, located in Fair Oaks, Indiana.

ARM executed this investigation as a follow-up to its 2019 operation that went viral, reaching over 25 million views from outraged consumers and advocates, prompting a response to improve dairy industry care standards.

In the aftermath of ARM’s original exposé, Coca-Cola cut ties with Fair Oaks Farms, as a supplier for its subsidiary dairy brand, fairlife LLC. Fair Oaks Farms C.E.O, Mike McCloskey, promised welfare reforms and better transparency.

New undercover footage, documented by an ARM investigator who worked at Fair Oaks Farms, depicted deplorable and filthy housing conditions, injured, lame, and suffering animals deprived of vet care, and routine neglect, abuse, and outright violence. Cows are whipped, stabbed, dragged by heavy machinery, and shot in the head by untrained employees. ARM’s investigator reported an inconceivable number of deaths, “We’d move out hundreds of dead newborn calves from the barn every day.”

ARM’s Founder, Richard ‘Kudo’ Couto, responded to the findings, “All eyes were on Fair Oaks Farms, and their reforms clearly failed. If any dairy farm had the motivation to fix this inherently cruel, broken system, it was Fair Oaks Farms, but they failed miserably.”

“The dairy cow cruelty once again coming out of Fair Oaks Farms and going into fairlife products is ghastly, although indicative of the dairy industry. With improvements made and safety measures put in place, stemming from ARM’s investigation of the same company in 2019, it should be a reminder that cruelty in the dairy industry can’t be reformed,” said Kudo.

“ARM is committed to tirelessly pursuing justice for these animals and holding those who harm them accountable for their actions,” concluded Kudo.

ARM confirmed that Fair Oaks Farms has resumed supplying milk to fairlife LLC. They also shared evidence and a detailed report with the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department requesting arrests and prosecution for animal cruelty.
