American Meat : A Fair & Balanced Look at the U.S. Meat Industry

American Meat is the eye-opening new documentary looking at the current state of the U.S. meat industry.

Unlike previous docs like Food Inc, Fast Food Nation or Super Size Me, American Meat takes an much more even-handed look at animal husbandry.

The filmmakers explain how America arrived at our current industrial system, and show you the feedlots and confinement houses, not through hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, they introduce the current revolution developing in animal husbandry.

We meet tens of farmers across the country who have changed their life to start grass-based farms, and we highlight every day tangible solutions that people can take, to change agriculture in America.

Take a look at the trailer.

If you’re interested in seeing American Meat, you may have to wait for the dvd release. This movie will not be showing up at your nearest Mega Movie-Plex. Here is a link to their screening locations.

I have suggested to the filmmakers that they stream this movie online to reach a larger audience before releasing the dvd.

They could promote it via social media, charge a low fee to access the streaming site and encourage post-movie discussion on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

Maybe they’ll do it, maybe they won’t.

    This looks to be good as the other films on this subject. We have made huge changes in the foods we eat. All meats are bought from local farmers. The price is higher,so we do adjust the amount we buy. We raise chickens,the eggs are superior in taste.
