Four Brown County dairy workers charged with mistreating animals

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Four dairy farm employees in Brown County are due in court March 4th, after they were allegedly caught mistreating cows in a secretly recorded video.

The four were charged with numerous counts of mistreating animals at the Wiese Brothers farm near Greenleaf.

The animal rights group Mercy for Animals posted video in December of employees who were beating, kicking, whipping, and stabbing cows that were sick and injured. One animal was seen suspended in the air. You can watch that video above.

The farm said at the time that it fired two employees and reassigned a third to a job that did not involve handling animals.

Also, the owner of DiGiorno's frozen pizza said it stopped using milk from the farm for some of the cheese in its product.
