The frozen pizza brand DiGiorno severed its business relationship with a dairy farm after a video surfaced on YouTube showing workers abusing milk cows, according to the Associated Press.

The video, released by animal rights activists, showed workers stabbing, kicking, whipping and dragging cows with ropes and clamps. Digiorno and its cheese supplier Foremost Farms announced that it had cut off milk shipments from the 5,000-cow farm in Wisconsin.

The owner of Weise Brothers Farm told the AP that the abuse had caught them by surprise and that they had fired the offending workers.
