Video reveals appalling abuse at Coca-Cola CAFO

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

coke cafo shows mass abuse of animals

Story at-a-glance -

  • Disturbing and horrific videos were released by Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) after their undercover operatives spent months at Fair Oaks Dairy recording daily abuse of the cows and calves in the care of a dairy whose owner, in 2004, said, "My doors are open, and you can see everything I'm doing"
  • ARM provided the police with reams of documentation, including video and audio recordings, proving the allegations; in an immediate response to the videos, several stores removed Fairlife milk from their shelves
  • Co-founders, husband and wife team Sue and Mike McCloskey, created a reformulated, ultrafiltered, high-protein, milk product in collaboration with Coca-Cola
  • The farm processes cow manure into methane gas to power vehicles, nitrogen fertilizer to grow genetically-altered feed and had plans to distill the remaining water to brew beer
  • The benefits of raw, unpasteurized milk from organically raised, grass fed pastured cows is nutritionally superior, far safer and more humane; find a supplier in your area at

Falling sales of carbonated beverages likely prompted The Coca-Cola Co. to make an undisclosed investment in a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) Fair Oaks Farm, where travelers have the option to purchase a meal and tour a dairy operation.

Coke teamed with Select Milk Producers (created by Fair Oaks owner Mike McCloskey), currently one of the top 10 and fastest-growing milk cooperatives in the country, and Fair Oaks Farms (owned by the McCloskey husband and wife team) to form Fairlife LLC.
