It's horrific.
A group of protesters gathered Monday afternoon at the West Loop offices of Fairlife, a nationally renowned brand of high-protein, high-calcium and lower fat milk. The company came under fire earlier this month when an animal welfare group released a series of videos showing workers at Fairlife’s top dairy supplier abusing cows.

On June 4, Animal Recovery Mission released the first of a series of videos that show workers at Indiana’s Fair Oaks Farms kicking and throwing calves and engaging in other forms of alleged animal abuse. The Miami-based animal welfare group had infiltrated the popular dairy farm and captured undercover footage of the incidents.

The group has released additional videos over the past week that show employees punching adult cows, striking them with metal poles and, it appears, breaking the tails of cows that were not cooperating as workers tried to load them into a milking carousel.

I just googled "Fairlife". Watched a disturbing video. Cows being abused on an Indiana farm. And also little calves being mistreated.
ETA: little dead calf bodies being tossed into a pile

This article gives a good picture, e.g. animal abuse at one of the farms. Happens to be the major farm for the chain and the showoff place to the public.

Grocers across the Midwest are pulling products distributed by a popular milk brand from store shelves after a shocking video, which revealed consistent abuse of calves at a major Indiana dairy farm, was released on social media this week.

The graphic footage taken from inside the dairy operations at Fair Oaks Farms, which is owned by the founder of the dairy company Fairlife (stylized as fa!rlife), was made public after an undercover investigation was conducted by the non-profit animal rights' group Animal Recovery Mission (ARM).
