'Sacred Cow' Virtual Movie Night and Panel Discussion


May 4, 2021 - May 14, 2021
Location:

PRESENTED BY THE CHESAPEAKE BAY FOUNDATION AND FUTURE HARVEST

Tuesday 5/4 – Friday 5/14  Learn why nature-raised meat is good for you, good for the planet, and good for the bay. Register to watch the well-researched and thoughtful 80-minute film Sacred Cow, which presents a strong case for thoughtful meat-eating as a way to achieve ecological balance, at your convenience within the 10-day period for free. Then join us on at 7:00 pm on Wednesday 5/12 for an online panel with Diana Rodgers, co-author of the book and producer and director of the film.

Less meat is better – pastured-raised is best. There has been a lot of news which suggests that eating meats is unhealthy, and environmentally among the more destructive foods you could be eating. The movie Sacred Cow provides a balanced and well-documented perspective on meat consumption and its connections with climate change issues, water quality issues, animal ethics, and nutrition and human health considerations.

Sacred Cow proposes a new way to look at sustainable diets. The film takes an in depth look at into the nutritional claims for and against meat, and why cattle raised well are actually good for the environment, and also addresses the ethical considerations concerning raising animals for meat.
