This slaughterhouse will let you watch what actually happens inside

A Vermont facility embraces transparency in a way that's truly rare for the industry. Will it catch on?

    Thanks to the slaughter-house crew, the photog and the Springfield Blogger. All that's missing are The Moment and the offal - for whatever reason.

  2. There is a delicious way to enjoy leafy veggies and whole grains....feed them to a cow and end up with a great steak.

  3. Honesty and "transparency" about being an animal abuser and murderer doesn't make being an animal abuser and murderer ok. It only adds to the pathology. Join modern times. Go vegan.

    2. Sick and disappointing you would advocate for abusing beautiful plants and their offspring under the guise of some modern day hip movement. Plants - whether fruits or vegetable, are living beings. For every leaf that is torn from it's stalk, the screams are muffled by your bearded ignorance. So continue to roam the earth in your leather cow skin sandals and Prius made of animal bipproducts - where I will join the new modern stone age by eating rocks and stone soup - lifeless, full of minerals and no cholesterol

    4. Eating animal products actually kills a lot more plants than being vegan, because each farm animal eats their lifetime of plants, and much land is cleared for cattle grazing and growing grains to feed them. It takes 10 pounds of vegetable protein to produce one pound of meat.

      The simplest piece of evidence that plants don't feel pain like animals do is their evolution. Animals feel pain because it gives them a sense of what's dangerous and when they should run. Plants on the other hand can't move, can't fight back physically so would have no evolutionary reason to feel pain. Furthermore some plants actually rely on parts of them being eaten to spread their seeds.

      Would Mother Nature be so cruel as to make trapped in place plants suffer horrible tortuous pain for no purpose?

  8. Hey if you want to eat meat, go ahead. If you don't, then don't. But don't go jumping all over each other. Live your life, let others live theirs and leave each other to hell alone.

    1. That's right, if you are daring enough try the traditional Chinese diet, eat anything and everything, literally.
