In late 2011 and early 2012, PETA conducted an undercover investigation at Adirondack Farms, LLC, a dairy factory farm that takes 180,000 pounds of milk—intended for their calves—from approximately 1,800 cows every day in Clinton County, New York. During the course of the investigation, PETA's investigator found that …
With no pain relief whatsoever, calves' horn buds were burned off so as to stop their horns from growing. PETA's undercover footage shows one of the millions of young calves who undergo this mutilation every year in the U.S. as she thrashes about in agony, smoke rising from her seared flesh. Workers used "guillotine cutters" to "lop off" the horns of older animals—again without anesthetics or pain relief. Adirondack Farms sends its milk to Agri-Mark, Inc., which makes cheese. Please send a quick e-mail to Agri-Mark CEO Dr. Richard Stammer, in care of the company's communications director, Doug DiMento (email@example.com), and politely urge him to implement PETA's recommendations immediately to help end the most egregious abuses of cows on cooperative members' farms and to improve animal welfare.

Dear [Decision Maker],
