Thanks Julie.  I was beginning to think I should have not posted this film.  I have my own confusion and issues about eating meat.  I don't eat poultry or pork.  (No bacon! :wacko: )  Because I have issues with the lack of regulation of poultry husbandry and slaughter practices, and the impossible position that poultry farmers are placed in by agribusiness.  I have issues with farrowing crates and other practices in pig farming. 

 

 

(John Oliver on the plight of the chicken farmer)

 

I don't think eating meat is wrong, per se.  And I have known enough cattle ranchers to have no problem with range cattle, cow and calf outfits.  But I dislike feetlot finishing.  I wear leather shoes (sometimes) and I consume dairy products.

 

But I felt that this film drew a compelling picture of a person who went from being a vegetarian to being the wife of a cattle rancher.  It isn't always easy to know what the "right" thing to do is.  But I feel that this woman, her husband and son have a good, ethical life.  It's a thing that's getting harder and harder to do.
