A Cow At My Table

A Cow at My Table is a documentary film examining Western attitudes towards farm animals and meat.

It covers the conflict between animal rights advocates and the meat industry, and their respective attempts to influence consumers. It was directed, shot and edited by Jennifer Abbott, who spent five years travelling across Canada, the U.S., Australia and New Zealand to interview representatives on all sides. The film intercuts these interviews with images of farm animals and industrial farming operations. It explores what is sometimes popularly called factory farming.

  1. The video does not play.

  2. There’s a great collection of other free videos that advocate a vegan eating/living plan too:

    The meat/dairy/egg industries spend hundreds of millions of dollars (and lots of political pull) lying to the public about their product. But no amount of cover up or false propaganda can sanitize meat. The facts are absolutely clear: Eating meat is bad for human health, catastrophic for the environment, and a living nightmare for animals.  There’s never been more compelling reasons or a better time to opt for a plant based diet.

  3. She is not the anti-christ but she is unfortunately like so many other people in the world today, and that is ignorant and disconnected from the reality of how our food is produced. In the midst of the suffering of our lives have we lost the reverence of all life. I only wish people would not deny themselves the facts in order to protect their pleasures. We need to ask the question: What have we come to and where are we going?

  4. that girl with the round glasses is… the anti-christ.
