If Slaughterhouses Had Glass Walls: Turkeys

Remember when I had a dream come true and I got to not only meet, Dr. Temple Grandin, but have lunch with her AND see her speak? She is my ag idol and hero, and I will never forget that day. Dr. Grandin is continuing with her amazing work by walking us through a turkey slaughter. Just in time for the holidays! (This next thing I’m gonna say is in sarcasm font and meant to be funny, so please don’t take it personally, K?) So when your vegan/vegetarian family member (we all have one) is all snarky about your knowledge of your meat, you will actually know how a commercial turkey arrives on your table. Knowledge is power my friends.

This is great! Want to see what it looks like inside a real beef processing facility? This is from Cargill. We’ve sold our beef to them before.
Notice how CLEAN everything is. Notice all the technology. Notice they are SHOWING you what is going on. I LOVE to see this kind of transparency in my industry! THIS IS WHERE YOUR FOOD COMES FROM.
