Lakeland-based grocer Publix has suspended its relationship with a Florida dairy farm after an undercover video surfaced showing employees literally  kicking cows in the face. 

The very graphic video, which was released yesterday by Miami-Beach based animal cruelty investigative organization Animal Recovery Mission (ARM), was shot at Larson Dairy in Okeechobee, Florida, by a member who took a job milking cows less than a month ago. 

Besides kicking bovine, the footage also shows employees attempting to get cows to move quickly into and out of their milking stalls by beating them with a steel rod.
