The Nutritional, Environmental and Ethical Case for Better Meat ... a documentary film for our local Ag Appreciation Week

At our grocery stores and dinner tables, even the most thoughtful consumers are overwhelmed
 by the number of considerations to weigh when choosing what to eat—especially when it comes to meat. Guided by the noble principle of least harm, many responsible citizens resolve the ethical, environmental and nutritional conundrum by quitting meat entirely. But can a healthy, resilient and conscientious food system exist without animals?

Sacred Cow probes the fundamental moral, environmental and nutritional quandaries we face in raising and eating animals. In this project, the filmmakers focus their lens on the largest and perhaps most maligned of farmed animals, the cow...and they pose a solution: It’s not the cow, it’s the how.

This documentary film by Diana Rogers is presented the Community Agriculture Alliance and Bud Werner Library in honor of 2022 Ag Appreciation Week.
