FAIR OAKS, Ind. (AP) — An animal rights group has released a longer video showing workers kicking and throwing young calves at a northwestern Indiana dairy farm that's an agritourism destination.

Animal Recovery Mission said Friday it released the 90-minute video shot at Fair Oaks Farms to counter claims that it had staged the abuse in a shorter video released this week.

Fair Oaks Farms is the flagship farm for Fairlife, a national brand of higher protein, higher calcium and lower fat milk. At least three retailers have since stopped selling Fairlife products.

A message seeking comment on the longer video was left Friday at Fair Oaks Farms.
