WISCONSIN DAIRY SHOCKED BY VIDEO OF ANIMAL ABUSE, FIRES 3 EMPLOYEES
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

A Wisconsin Dairy has responded to an undercover video taken at its farm showing animal abuse.

In a statement, Weise Brothers Farm says it was "shocked and saddened" by the abuse that it had been unaware of and has terminated two employees and removed a third employee from animal duties.

Mercy for Animals released the video which Weise Brothers says it learned about on November 26th.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Nestle, which owns DiGiorno pizza, told ABC news the company would not use any cheese made from the milk from Weise Brothers Farms. Nestle contacted Foremost Farms USA, the cheese supplier.

In a statement, Foremost Farms said it has discontinued receiving milk from Weise Brothers because of the video.
