A new Mercy For Animals investigation is pulling back the curtains on the largest dairy factory farm in New York State Willet Dairy in Locke.

In early 2009 an MFA undercover investigator worked at the mega-dairy, secretly documenting egregious acts of animal cruelty, including neglect, with a hidden camera.

Thankfully, compassionate consumers can choose to withdraw their support of these abusive industries by adopting a vegan diet.

Each time we eat we can choose kindness over cruelty. Visit ChooseVeg.com for dairy-free recipes.

Evidence gathered during the investigation reveals:

* Cows with bloody open wounds, prolapsed uteruses, pus-filled infections, and swollen joints, apparently left to suffer without veterinary care

* "Downed" cows those too sick or injured to even stand left to suffer for weeks before dying or being killed

* Workers hitting, kicking, punching, and electric-shocking cows and calves

* Calves having their horns burned off without painkillers, as a worker shoved his fingers into the calves' eyes to restrain them

* Calves having their tails cut off a painful practice condemned by the American Veterinary Medical Association as cruel and unnecessary

* Newborn calves forcibly dragged away from their mothers by their legs, causing emotional distress to both mother and calf

* Cows living in overcrowded sheds on manure-coated concrete flooring

* Workers injecting cows with a controversial bovine growth hormone, used to increase milk production
