Just watched the documentary Frankensteer. This documentary is a few years old, but the information is current and it is very informative. Frankensteer wraps a lot of information into 44 minutes, in a way that everyone will be able to understand. It covers growth hormones, low level antibiotic use, feeding meat to cows, mad cow disease, feed lots, feeding corn to cows, organic beef, and beef processing. I will say that at about minute 25 they start to review the process of feeding ground up beef parts to cows and show the unused portions of beef being ground up. This turned my stomach a little, just for those who are a little squeemish. I would highly recommend this documentary to anyone who eats, or cooks with store bought, non organic, non grass fed beef.
If you have a netflix membership you can find this as a "watch it now" selection.
