      Tell Land 'o Lakes that Horrific Cruelty to Dairy Cows not Acceptable

      You probably recognize the name Land O'Lakes. You've seen the company's butter and milk products lined up on grocery-store shelves, and you may even purchase its products for your family. Now, please consider the immense suffering of these cows¯who are given little more than a numbered tag punched through their ears¯documented by PETA during our new undercover investigation of a Land O'Lakes supplier.

      On the supplier's Pennsylvania farm, our investigation documented the suffering of cow #506, who gave birth after a nine-month pregnancy and then collapsed on April 11. A day later, she was found struggling outside without food, water, or shelter from freezing temperatures ¯- the flailing of her head had carved a small trench in the ground under her face. She was eventually shot and killed.

      Cow #826 would not stand up when urged, prompting the farm's co-owner to electro-shock her to her feet. Her condition continued to decline over the course of 21 days, until she was finally shot and killed. Like many other cows on this farm, she was not given veterinary care or put out of her misery in a timely manner. Instead, she was left to suffer for weeks.

      While being milked by a machine, cow #36's gangrenous, infected teat ruptured, and workers were told to "amputate" it by binding it with a tight elastic band. Her condition deteriorated over the course of 11 days, until she finally died.

      These are the stories of just a few of the cows whose painful experiences our investigator documented on the farm of this Land O'Lakes supplier. Others suffered when their newborn calves were torn away from them shortly after birth or when their tails were tightly wrapped with elastic bands in order to "dock" them, and they were all forced to live in perpetually wet pens and sheds full of deep excrement, which leads to the spread of disease. Watch our investigation video to learn more.

      This blatant disregard for animal welfare is routine in the dairy industry. Cows are kept constantly pregnant in order to make them continue to produce milk, and they are hooked up at least twice a day to machines that extract the milk intended for their own calves. When their exhausted bodies are "spent" and can no longer provide enough milk, they are sent to slaughter, usually for hamburger meat.

      Please take just a few minutes right now to help cows like #506, #826, and #36 who are still suffering for Land O'Lakes products. Write to the company today. Demand that Land O'Lakes executives watch the horrific undercover investigative footage and adopt PETA's 12-point animal welfare plan, which will eliminate some of the worst abuses of cows raised for milk. Of course, the best way for you to
      help prevent cows from enduring this type of abuse is to go vegan and stop consuming dairy foods.
