You can scroll down and download the video. I heard it's pretty disturbing so I dont have the guts to watch it. Maybe some of the nonvegetarians can watch it to see how these animals are treated. Just a thought!!
i watched the one of the turkey farm so far and you see not to be gross on this board. but that is what i am use to. my grandfather was a dairy farmer, then went to raising beef cattle. my aunt and uncle use to own a chicken farm, not just a few chickens i mean a big old chicken farm with 6 differnt buildings. i have been in a butcher shop and have seen cows haning skinned. my dad, grandfather, uncles, aunts, my mom, even me we were at one time all hunters. my dad, grandfather and uncles still are. i have seen skinned deer, bear, turkeys, fish. you name it i probably have seen it. so i guess growing up my whole intire life like that these things dont bother me. i have seen some things you girls dont even want me to post in here. but i still eat meat, i see no problem with it. i am not trying to say you all are weird or whatever b/c you dont eat meat. if that is what you want then i think that is awesome. me personally though, i think i will always eat meat. sorry
O.k. thanks Jessica for having "the balls", lol. Anyways did you watch the rest or are you planning on it? I would imagine that watching a cow being slaughtered (the entire process) would be pretty disturbing.
I know youve seen a cow being skinned, but have you seen a cow being killed? Even though it would make me very sad to see a cow being skinned, it would hurt me so much more to see it being killed before skinned.
I am at work, so I can't down load it. But it probably is gross, but not disturbing to me at least. Why would it? I mean, I don't care for seeing it, that is why I'm greatful for grocery stores and butchers that do it for me. I think watching a dr. perform surgery is stomach turning to me as well...do I think they shouldn't do it? Of course they should! Just b/c it may be gross or disturbing, doesn't always mean it's a bad thing. What WOULD bother me was if there is evidence in this video to show that the meat is being contaminated or during the process, the meat isn't handled sanitarily thus providing health concerns for myself or my famiily. Like mad cow disease. I guess I'm more concerned for the health of my family and hope that gov't regulations keeps the meat safe than the cow actually being slaughtered. Ya, I know, call me selfish. It's all good!
ok. i just got done watching it, the whole thing! some parts where the did cut the necks was kind of gross but i feel the same as mom2one

i grew up around this kind of stuff and not everything in the video is how EVERYONE handles their pigs, cows, chickens and turkeys. as i said before my uncle and aunt owned a pig farm and chicken farm. i have went out to help catch chickens for the trucks when i was younger. the ones that were crippled yeah my uncle would kill them, usually by twisting their necks, fastly. he never beat them with a metal rod. as for the pigs, if he had one that was way bad off and couldnt stand or move anymore he would put it out by shooting it, not beating it off of the concret floor! LOL see that is why in that video i didnt get all freaked out b/c i know not ALL farms are that way. of course they are going to put the worse ones they could find on there, to try to change everyones minds about meat. as for did the video change my mind? Nope!
but it is normal to most people. most people dont see it as being wrong. i watched the whole movie and i still will eat meat, lol. call me a weirdo but i will. lol you really cannot save EVERY darn living thing on the earth.
The beef your eating tonight or tommorrow could have come from a farm that is that way. You would never know unless you bought your meat from the nice old man down the street who you really know treats his cows "nice".
