I actually just watched this documentary, from Netflix, on Friday. I have also seen The Future of Food. Both are real eye openers to what is actually in the food you eat, the cruel way that meat animals are treated and the unsanitary garbage and chemicals mixed in ground beef. I do like meat so will need to stat growing my own and then feel bad about taking it to a butcher or find myself a homesteading man that will do the dirty deed for me.
It's really sad what the world is coming to and government is taking over right in front of our eyes, but behind our backs. People need to educate themselves on what's really going on and start producing their own food; meat, fruit and GMO free vegetables.

It is a shame that films tend to focus on the bad and not the good. The average American Farmer treats his animals with respect and care because they are his livelihood and without them, he would be out of business. It's too bad there isn't a film out there about the small dairy-farms like we have in Ohio.

Where I come from, all farm animals have names....(and the grandkids have a tendency to paint the toenails of chickens).

I agree you need to find a butcher that is humane or do it yourself. I do chickens, turkeys and wild game myself. I do have a good butcher that will take care of the pigs and cows humanely.

I'm reading this book as well. It's also very interesting.

The Future of Food is another good movie along those lines of Food Inc. Makes you think about what you're eating, doesn't it?
